We're getting very close. The happy couple arrived yesterday so the wedding week has officially commenced! Despite months and months of planning, I am still running around with lists, facing the fact that I may be the world's most challenged person when it comes to time management. Truly. However, I am getting better at letting some things go so I decided to pop in, just briefly, to thank you all for your nice emails and comments the last few weeks, which regretfully have often have gone unanswered.
Today is dedicated to some baking, finishing up placecards, menu planning for the rest of the week, schedule review and a few quick errands. Our houseguests start arriving soon...friends from Australia on Monday, K&H from China on Tuesday, the groom's family from Sydney early Wednesday, all looking forward to some good old 4th of July celebrating! Then on to the wedding weekend...all the important things are in place for that. I've finally lost those 10 lbs so we may proceed! *grin*
The wedding quilt (top) has been gifted and excitedly received. Here's a little peek to keep my poor blog from withering up and blowing away! I'll have lots more to share when I return in another 10 days or so.
Thanks again for all of your kind thoughts and good wishes! We are counting on Molly's long reputation for being a hare onna, the Japanese term for a girl whose presence always seems to be accompanied by good weather. But rain or shine, we are being blessed by friends and family traveling from far and wide, across the country and around the world, to celebrate our wonderful couple, Molly and Chito.
