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

10 tips for Broad Street Run Newbies
The Broad Street Run is an iconic Philadelphia institution.  It’s an easy course at a great time of year with lots of enthusiastic spectators.  I am no elite athlete but I have done the BSR for the last 4 years and have a few half marathons and a full under my (fuel) belt.  If you’ve gotten a spot in the lottery but have never taken part in this piece of Philly history, read on: 1) Dressing for the BSR: check the weather. It will probably be cold when you start. Bring a throwaway sweatshirt with you to toss to the side when the race begins. These clothes are all donated to charity.
