Well, the time has finally come!! After a full year of thinking about and planning our wedding, we’re leaving tomorrow morning to drive to Colorado (from California) for our wedding in my hometown, Aspen. I have to say, it is absolutely frightening and exciting. As with everything, there seems to be that pull between fear and joy. Mostly, I’m hoping to really appreciate this time that I’m going to spend with family and friends that I don’t get to see very often. Also, I’m praying for stellar blue skies and fall colors in Colorado, and hoping to make peace with my fright about being in the spotlight for the entire wedding festivities.
After our wedding on September 26, we will head off for two weeks in the Oaxaca, Mexico area. We haven’t been on a real vacation in a couple of years, other than visiting family, so we’re so very excited to lounge about. I will attempt to post some pictures of the wedding and wedding prep at some point next week, or in between wedding and honeymoon, but I can’t make any promises—I have a feeling there will be much excitement and chaos the whole time, with little time for blogging.
You might also note that this means I will be away from my shop as well. I will be back on the blog and in the shop on October 14, so any orders placed between now and then will be shipped by October 15.
I’m really looking forward to sharing stories and pictures from the wedding with you because so many wonderful creative family members and friends will be participating. In fact, we have covered pretty much all parts of the wedding with family help, so it should really feel warm and fun!
See you on the flip side, or perhaps some time in between!
