Personal

I am vacillating between two extremes.

One is the panic in realizing that my wedding is less than 100 days away. With such a loooong engagement and destination wedding, the wedding has always been a vague, distant concept that I couldn’t really touch or see or smell. I had other weddings on my plate. Your weddings.

But then I did the calculation the other week and realized, “Holy s#!t! 94 days?! That’s, like, soon. That’s real. Things are about to get legit!”

And so there might have been some panicking in the way Type-As do: lists!
Caterer, in-season flowers, gown alterations, music, boudoir session, honeymoon, Crest White Strips, favors, hunting down RSVPs, date to get the marriage license, what goes into name changing, do I really need that extra dinner roll?, hunting down more RSVPs… Deep breaths.

And then there’s the other: springtime bliss. I love spring like crazy. It makes me feel whole again after the bitter cold of winter. I can get outside and run and run and run. (Helloooooo, Broad Street!  Who else will be pounding the pavement with me this weekend?) Engagement sessions and weddings out the wazoo and it’s spring and the earth is so happy and so am I.

I shall focus on the latter extreme. Busy but blissful. Windows open, doors open, flip-flopped-out bliss. Ahhhhhhh!

In that vein, I give you this month’s Facebook cover images: pretty, little cherry blossoms around the Philadelphia Art Museum. Click to download these images and see them at their full size and resolution.

Deep breaths.

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Lindsay Goes to Europe
I wanted to put some more stamps in my passport before wedding season showed up in full force. I guess I put the right messages out to the universe because I had a phone call Thursday morning with a friend in Europe and everything aligned. I booked a flight and I’ll be leaving tonight for Paris, Frankfurt, Lyon, and Zurich. (Or thereabouts.)I’m thrilled and panicked. I’m a total planner and this last minute madness is making my head spin. I don’t know the language, the sights, or the customs. I didn’t even have the time to check the weather over there til yesterday (freaking freezing, by the way!). My plan is to have a croissant in Par ...

We bought a house in June. After moving around all my life (28 addresses at last count), I am thrilled to put down roots and have a permanent base (I still plan on as many adventures as possible). This is crazy and exciting and terrifying and amazing all wrapped up in one big, expensive package. We have professionals doing the especially skilled labor (taking down walls, putting up walls, adding a spiral staircase, stuff with electricity, plumbing, gas/oil, and 100 other things). We took on a task that took approximately 5x longer than we originally expected and though it’s nowhere near perfect, we’re pretty proud of ourselves: we painted ...

Rain, rain, go away!
I'm all for the green, lush gardens and no water restrictions, but it has rained every day of May so far. I even heard that this is a record number of rainy days in a row for Philly and I'm ready for the sun!Remember what this was like?Don't worry, it'll come again. Until then, we'll have to make do with our rainy days. Being the smart cookie I am, I finally went out last Sunday and bought myself a pair of wellies! In between showers today, the wellies and I went out for a little photo session…And I got a few shots of the garden too.“The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
