I want to take a moment to brag about Eric and I's awesome wedding planning skills. Many thanks to our parents and recently married friends, too!

WORK IN PROGRESS:
Guest List: need 1/3 addresses left
Bridesmaids Dresses: starting over
My Dress: picked out, not ordered

It feels SO good to have so much out of the way. The rest of it will be the little annoying details, but they will be ones I can squeeze in along the way. I can take a HUGE deep breath knowing the "big stuff" is booked and will start the new year / first semester of grad school on a good note.
