life lately.

February 4, 2014

life has been a constant buzz lately. and it only makes sense to take a moment + share what’s been going on.

if I can give one piece of advice for soon-to-be brides, it is that your wedding will consume your thoughts; day & night. I am 8 months from “the big day,” and have wedding dreams nightly. it’s not bad, but it is more than I expected. [J] & I are putting the finishing touches on our wedding invitations, and will be sending them out soon. I am shifting my focus to our Iowa wedding reception, and will be sharing details on the blog.

[J] & I are moving to a new apartment. in two short weeks. it’s only 5 miles from our current apartment, but is much more spacious. I can’t believe I have to box up our lives & need to stop procrastinating.

february is proving to be an exciting month; I have many events & blogger collaborations in the works.

after working on a project for jess at stamp in my passport, I have decided to regularly spotlight the wonderful city I live in, Des Moines. and all that it has to offer. so look for that feature coming soon.

yesterday my computer & camera banned together and decided to take a day off. turns out, they’re still on strike today. so while frustrating, I’m thankful for tablets & camera phones.

it has been snowing since 5AM and refuses to end until tomorrow. which means I’ll be drinking more than my share of coffee to keep warm, and staying inside.

ideas grow here //

a notebook & groom-turned-stress-ball are the ideal companions on a snowy afternoon.

happy tuesday!

    Eeeek, two weeks?! We’re moving in 3 weeks (exactly) and I haven’t even thought about the process yet. I have a feeling it’s going to sneak up on me and I’m going to get realllly stressed for like the two days before. Yay life transitions!

      that’s how I operate too. I think about moving & how I should [probably] begin to pack in order to reduce said stress, but I never do. I rather just daydream about how I’ll decorate & arrange the new place, and deal with the actual act of moving later. good luck!!! 🙂

    We are moving 3 weeks from Friday, bigger unit in the same complex but it’s still a move! that notebook is the cutest thing ever, where’d you get it?!

      a move is a move. even if it’s next door. you still have to organize, pack, and unpack. and CARRY EVERYTHING. boo. but the end result is always worth it!! and thank you – I got the notebook at target! 🙂

    Good luck with the move. February sounds like it will be a busy and exciting month. I would love it to snow here, all we have is rain, rain and more rain 🙂

      thank you rachel. I’ll send some snow your way, we have a lot to spare!! I must say when it comes to precipitation, I’d take snow over rain. unless I have to drive, then I pick rain [only if it’s above freezing].
