Hello! Well, it's been a while, hasn't it?
So, basically, after the big invitation push, wedding planning has been smoother. There's still the whole "ceremony" thing to be worked out. Aisle? Vows? That sort of thing. But, as the RSVPs roll in, I'm starting to get a little bit excited about the party part. It's nice, because I know that people I love and care about are going to be there. Chris's Aunt Holly sent us a package with a DVD of Chris's cousin's wedding, and a beautiful bracelet. It has pictures of vintage brides.
It's also tax season. I don't have a problem with taxes, as an idea. But doing taxes scares me a bit. I met with my German Tax Lady. She is wonderful, if a little bit strange. One of the first things she asked me, in a German accent, was, "What are your dreams?" It was disconcerting. I mean, I want to get my taxes done, and she's asking me what my dreams are. And she uses a lot of German: numbers, names, relationships, exclamations. I left her office feeling dizzy. Also, inspired. She's good, though, at what she does.
Tonight we made dinner together: turkey meatloaf with broccoli and greens, spinach salad with dried cranberries and blue cheese (Lindsay's mom's recipe). It was a good combo pack, although the meatloaf could've been better. We made it up, so of course it was off. But it has potential.
I was on the back porch, looking in on the house, and thought, we painted the kitchen, we painted the living room. It made me feel good, seeing something that we did together and thinking it was beautiful.
