And since we’re already 3 days in, that means that our wedding is 4 weeks from today (meaning Wednesday!)! It’s getting to be crunch time, and the to-do list keeps growing, but it’s all good and exciting stuff!
So much to be happy about – August fairly flew by and was filled with awesomeness! For example –
- A course at the U of M brought me to the Cities for a few days and Chris was on vacation so he tagged along! He enjoyed daytime adventures on foot in St. Paul and Minneapolis and we both enjoyed nights out in the Minneapple! We ate Mexican at Masa on Nicollet, yummy bar food on a rooftop off 1st Ave and desserts down below at Hell’s Kitchen; we drank cider and beer at Sociable Cider Werks with Marissa and her guy, and walked through the sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center! The highlight of the trip was seeing Paul McCartney at Target Field – amazing! What a beautiful and fun night – and what an incredible entertainer!
- Many date nights with wedding planning as a topic of conversation. We’ve been to Cowboy Jack’s a few times, the Tap House and the Doggery (Chris discovered the Shallow End), and we saw “Boyhood” and “The November Man” in the theatre. We took a trip to IKEA and the Mall of America for wedding paraphernalia, and have shopped for furniture! Always on the go!
- Ferragosto! It was an abbreviated version this year, but no less fun! We had wet campfires, hot hazy humid weather, no mosquitos, and many trips to the Hoy’s Resort for BYOB! No shortage of good food, good drinks, good talks, good belly laughs, and good relaxation! We watched a few movies and even danced and sang on the deck, while planning wedding reception songs! There will be photos – eventually!
Every day off in September is precious and filled with planning! So many details – but it is all so good! Looking forward to take-off on 9/29 and everything that week brings!
