We’ve had a crazy couple of weeks and we’ve been bad about dedicating time to blog. Forgive us for slacking on our 366 project? I promise we haven’t abandoned you or this blog! I think we’ll be able to catch up!
I am long overdue for a post about our venue adventures (read: nightmares) so that’s first up on my to-do list!
How’s everyone else’s wedding planning going? Anyone else having trouble staying on track while they get sick and deal with the season changes?

So excited for all of our new followers and people supporting us through likes, comments, and reblogs! I hope that our honest documentation of the year leading up to our wedding will help others who might find themselves in a similar situation to ours. Soon, things are going to get real and we’re going to be talking about our stuggles with venues, finances, and big decisions. Bigger than centerpieces and guest lists! Thank you again for your support. Love you all - near and far!

I’m not so great at keeping up with this, huh? I noticed that we got a bunch of new followers this week so I felt compelled to post, but it turns out that everyone who added us had been hacked. What does that say about our blog? Humph.
Anywho, lots of things in the works. There is likely going to be a change of venue for the reception (which I will explain further in another post, but it’s good news, not bad!), we’ve been doing lots of thinking about invitations (with the help of our dear friend Chris), and we found a hymn while at church that we love which would be perfect for the ceremony!
I’ve been getting overwhelmed pretty easily through the whole process so far, but I found a book that I’m ordering through Amazon which I hope will help. It’s called “Inviting God to Your Wedding: and Keeping God in Your Marriage” and it was written by Martha Williamson. This part of the description struck me because it’s a feeling I’m definitely struggling with myself:
“In the months before our wedding, I searched the shelves of my favorite bookstores for a wedding book that I never found: A book that would celebrate my joy and acknowledge my fears. A book that would be a silent friend that wouldn’t overwhelm me with week-by-week checklists and endless pictures of table settings… . I knew that before I began organizing the most important event of my life, I needed to organize my heart.”
Check out the book and reviews here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/0609606387/ref=aw_d_detail?pd=1
I’m really pumped for it to arrive!
