This past weekend it hit me that January is nearly over, and now we are down to double digits until our wedding. Today makes 96 days. I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling like, where did January go?
It's so nice to start our days slow: slowly make cups of coffee, slowly make something to eat, slowly get a start on errands... It's nice to take it slow with an easy meal like waffles when you have a new waffle maker. This past weekend we whipped up some waffles, sneaked a little vanilla extract in the batter, and instead of syrup we topped our waffles with chocolate and hazelnut spread (Nutella). A sweet start to a day.
After slow weekend mornings, every week it feels like we accomplish something for the wedding. For a while it was something that we set a date for, put on the back burner, and figured we would think about it later since we have so much time to plan it. Well, now that we have 3 months left, it feels crunch time.
Recently our friend finalized the invitation designs, set up with our other friend who works at a letter press company to get them printed, and ordered big things like bridal party gifts and our wedding bands. It was really awesome to go to the letterpress studio and see how the whole process of printing will be. The studio had huge machines for pressing, cutting, inking, and even aqua-tinting. It seems surreal right now and hard to imagine how the invitations will finally look in our hands.
Other than that, weekends are a time for us to relax and recoup for the busy weeks. On Sunday morning we spent it listening to the radio and S played mandolin on the balcony while I sipped my coffee and flipped through a magazine. It was so nice to take an unintended break from TV, Netflix, and our computers.
Also, I'm itching to buy new glasses. I'm really loving the tortoise shell look, so I don't think I'm choosing from the batch that I tried on. I've been looking around the web for tortoise shell glasses in the shape of the favorite pair from that post. This time I'm going to do all of the upgrades that I normally do like progressive bifocals, UV protection, anti-reflection, ultra-thin, etc. I will definitely have to do a proper update with the glasses once I find them!
I wish that you all have a story-worthy week!
