hello! i am currently in the midst of one of the most exciting (and busiest) times of my life. yesterday the awful rain and hail we’ve been having stopped very suddenly, and we were greeted with snow and SUN  – basically the perfect combination – for my bridal shower. my bridesmaids and family and friends went above and beyond to make me feel so incredibly loved (with some laughs thrown in for good measure). as if that wasn’t enough, it is my birthday today. i am 30! it feels good. especially when you wake up to coconut cake in bed.

lastly, we are getting hitched in less than 2 weeks. this is my last week of work and then i’ll be stepping straight into the spiraling vortex of last minute wedding stuff and thingz… after which we leave for NYC for our honeymoon. so things are going to be a bit erratic around here over the next few weeks. i’m going to come out the other end as a Mrs, which is pretty damn rad. perhaps it’s time for a new blog name? while i ponder that, here’s a These Things.
