Happy Friday!

by Laicie

I know it’s a little cliché, but wow.  The time between your engagement and your wedding… it flies.  In just a month my mom will be here to help me pick out my dress.  The date was chosen because it was fairly close to the wedding… close enough that I wouldn’t regret my choice, but far enough away for alterations.  It seemed so distant in July, but winter has come (sort of) and gone and spring is nearly here.

Just one month after (in May) we’ll be in California for our engagement shots, hair and makeup trials, tastings… all the final touches.  Then it’s summer… and soon after we’ll be married…

I know it’s still a lot of time.  Some people plan an entire wedding over the course of the time we have left.  But to me, it seems like no time at all.  I know how fast the next few months will fly, and right now, if I could ask for anything in the world, it would simply be the ability to enjoy this moment.  To take a deep breath and really savor the fact that I’m about to marry my best friend… the guy I love.  Despite all of the planning and prepping that threatens to get in the way, I couldn’t be more excited about that fact.

But, on another note (because the planning really is fun sometimes): Where I should take my mom on her very first trip to NYC?  I’m working on ideas now and I know there are more than a few of you out there with some really good advice.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
