I am so bad about writing in this personal blog. It could be because I almost constantly have the TV on, or because focusing in general has never been my strong suite. But here I am, forcing myself to do it, and in the end I will thank my self for it!
So We have been here about a week, and even though I miss Montreal’s unique atmosphere, and all the familiar sights and sounds, Michigan is not so bad.
Our apartment is SO much nicer (and bigger), we bought a 2013 Civic Sedan, and we booked a venue for our wedding!
Originally we had planned to do it a traditional wedding venue in Virginia that was a large estate house. But after getting into contract details we realized that there were just too many restrictions to have the kind of hands on, family-made wedding we had in mind!
This was something my parents defiantly agreed on, and they were even happier with our new plan to get a big beach house for a week, have our family come stay with us, and throw the whole wedding in the middle of it!
It took a few months, but as of yesterday we finally booked the house (that sleeps no less than 50 people!) and set the date! September 14th, 2013!
So now I am getting a move on the actual planning! Mike’s brother and sister-in-law own and operate a printing press company out of Richmond (ittybittypress.com) and have offered to do our invites for free, as a wedding present! I am so excited, and I know they will do a kick ass job. I will have to post pictures when the time gets closer!
Well I have some final coding, designing, and illustrative work left to do on the blog, then I need to get a tripod and some food-photography-props, but after that I don’t really have any excuse but to post!
Back to the grind!
