personal stories wedding planning

Murphy’s Law and Such…

There is so much going on right now, some I can share… some I cannot.

You already know, our very belated wedding is nearing, fast. Remember how we posponed it while pregnant with Everly? When it comes to important life stuff…

 “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”.

Except, for us the “going wrong” isn’t really all that terrible, just inoppotune type stuff like infertility clearing up right after engagement.

Well this time, the money has been paid and we can’t back out now… but it’s about to get way more interesting around here thanks to ole Murphy.

As for the wedding, we’ve never seen the wedding venue we choose, so that makes things very interesting. I mean we know the property but have never toured the lodge we will marry & celebrate at… so we can’t visualize the flow of the day or knowledgeably plan for what will go where, or what we’ll need. We hope to have someone in Arizona to take us on a video or photo tour of the place though.

We do have a photographer, a videographer and a gluten free cake in the works. The menu is also decided, the guest list is shaping up and in a few short months our big day will be here.

Did I mention we are doing a waste-free wedding? We AREN’T buying a ton of decor crap that will later be useless junk that’s landfill bound. Instead we are borrowing what supplies we need. The wedding will be very rustic, not really “frilly” if you know what I mean.

I’d really like to find some wine crates, old wooden cable spools and some large wood stumps to use for decor… It will be an intimate, very small wedding. We are also doing this debt free! We are excited that the big day is getting so close but we are also starting to feel the stress of the nearing event.

Also, Nathan just spend all of Sunday out with our neighbor doing more “pond” cleanup. I’ve blogged about the pond that we share ownership of before… This time, they got an inflatable boat. Chainsaws, waders and hand clippers were involved. It was all quite ammusing but also insanely productive!

The garden is springing to life here, we anxiously wait and watch while the strawberries, blueberries & grapes set. Seeds are coming up in the planting beds, the peas are climbing high and we just can’t wait to be harvesting and enjoying our own fresh, organic produce again!

That is really all I have in terms of updates. What is cookin’ with you?
