Whirlwind

Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately, what with the wedding coming up and all.

Most weekends have been spent away from home, helping with venue renovations. The rest of the time has been spent either working or doing something wedding-related.

Testing out the Polaroid for the wedding. Took pictures of my cat, of course.

It’s a small wedding, but wow do these take a lot of time and effort.

It will all be worth it, of course, and as it gets closer, I keep getting more and more excited about it.

Progress! The windows are in and it’s been cleared out. 

And I have to admit that I love spending time at the venue. The farm is gorgeous and the people are wonderful. It’s busy and tiring, but I always leave feeling refreshed.

The other weekend I had the task of shining up a bunch of antique window locks. They were incredibly rusted, so I scrubbed and oiled and baked and they turned out gorgeously.

We’ll actually be able to open windows now!

Little by little the venue is coming together. I feel like there’s something special about a place that both my fiancé and I have worked on together. A place filled with the hard work, dedication, and love of so many people.

We’re almost there, and I couldn’t be more excited.
