Well, Bailey and her mom asked me for updates on the blog. So, here goes.

I've been super busy at work. Not much wedding planning going on. VBS starts on Monday here at Cornerstone, so pretty much that has been my focus for the past few weeks. Admittedly, I feel a bit behind even in that. Not because of wedding plans, ok, maybe a little. But mostly I feel as though the summer has just snuck up on me!

We are doing TWO sessions of VBS this year, a morning session and an evening session. I told Mark last night: "See you at the lake July 4 weekend!" It really won't be that bad, but practically speaking I won't get to spend much time with him until after VBS. And that is a real bummer!

Wedding plans are coming along. We have a band for the Ruston reception. If you are in the Ruston area and are NOT planning to come to the reception on September 23, YOU ARE CRAZY cause it is going to be so much fun!

We are working on ceremony stuff too. It is fun to dream about making that a very fun ceremony with lots of "unexpected" ideas and with a big focus on the ONE who brought Mark and I together.

I bought Mark's wedding band last week. Oh, how I can't wait to put that on his finger and call him my husband!

My dear friend Eve is hard at work designing our invitations. She is a very talented and creative gal. I can't wait to see what she comes up with.

There is lots of talk too about wedding showers. How fun! You all know how I love a party. The next few months are really just going to be one party after another - and they are all about Mark and I!

I'd love to hear from you. Drop me a note. Give me some wedding planning advice.

Love you all.
