Do All the Things

June is almost over. Oh-Em-Gee. This year is flying by ...

I'm beginning to wonder how I had time to do everything I did for our wedding, work and keep "real life" things going simultaneously. Sometimes, having an end goal really propels you and gives you the momentum necessary to complete a task. I find myself hoarding DIY projects like a squirrel hoards nuts for winter. I stick them all in a spare bedroom and close the door and say "one day soon, I'll finish them."

I was determined to wrap up all things wedding before the end of this month. That was a bit too ambitious on my part.

I'm still trying to order prints for our moms, enlargements for us and custom framing of special things, like invitations and programs. But, 8 months later, we have one wedding picture hanging up and our faces aren't even in it. 8 months after our wedding, my dress still hasn't been cleaned (or sold or moved). I haven't even started on our photo book, which, by the way, has an expiration date of October 28th (it's a Groupon).

Someone please tell me that it isn't just me, that I'm not as lazy as this sounds and that you were all still surrounded with post-wedding "chores"?

Knowing that I will be starting a new job next week - almost completely unrelated to what I've been doing for the past 7 years - is exciting and scary. It's going to be time-consuming and I'm worried that all my "to-dos" will go from "one day soon" to "someday".


  1. Girl, don't get down on yourself. I just chose our wedding album photos 6 weeks ago. I got the proofs for the pages last week - still haven't found time to go through and approve them. Our 2 year anniversary is in September. As far as I'm concerned, you're ahead of the game. :)

  2. Every bride is definitely thinking just the same, you are not the only person who is bothered by the time and date! :D
