Don't you love to come up with titles for these postings? Sometimes, I don't know the title until I write it. Kind of like I don't know what day I am going to have until it's over. I've been silent lately, not out of any real issues other than jam-packed days and exhausted nights. We are busy with all things TW, which include for us getting the cottage ready for the season. Time to spruce up, clean, paint, replace pillow covers, shower curtain liners, clean out the gutters, rip out sinks, and buy fabulous cheap new rugs at The Christmas... Read more →

WAS "Sunday Morning" But My Phone Ate My Pictures.

Sunday morning, I had planned to jump out and go back into the city this morning. Spring is here in two more days but in New York the sun already has returned and caused the daffodils to unfurl and the trees to bud and the farmers' market to be full of branches of forsythia, cherry, and pussy willow.

Yesterday, I spent the day glued to the computer, writing up reports, editing motions, and replying to emails.

(all photos featured in this post are not our wedding prep, but are from So much wedding fol de rol prep, and it is still almost 3 months away! The shower is next week, however, so I am a tad busy. (Don't worry, The Bride knows the date, just not the venue.) Yesterday, sister #2 and I closeted ourselves in my little art room and did all manner of things with ribbons and crepe paper. Promise a lengthier post quite soon. Right now, I am very busy initiating a petition to ban all wedding websites, especially DIY wedding websites,... Read more →
