one month to go!

It's hard to believe after all of the planning and plotting that the day is almost here! Being journalists, we thrive under deadlines, so we've accomplished a lot in the past few days.

I find myself turning again and again to etsy for my wedding needs. I have always loved etsy, but I particularly like that I'm supporting an independent artist, not just the evil, money-grubbing Wedding Industrial Complex.

I picked up a tiny, rather impractical ring bowl from Paloma's Nest. It is inscribed like the one on the bottom right -- "I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart." It's from this ee cummings poem that we will include in our program.

I also settled on wedding jewelry, which was an onerous process for me. They're from luxe deluxe -- a delightful vintage jewelry shop. There are so many fabulous designs sold there that I wish I could buy four or five more. Here's mine! (In real life, it's teeny tiny.)

A spokesman said to me today that this is a really wonderful period of my life, that I should stop and enjoy it. So I'm adding that to my to-do list.
