Wedding update...86 days and counting!!

Time for a wedding update! We have 86 more days left until the big day and since January 1st, it has felt like time is really flying by. It's just around the corner and we hope it'll be here before we know it!

Because of my planning personality, I tend to be way overzealous with planning things early. So where the wedding is concerned, I need to keep reminding myself that we still have 3 months left to plan and I don't have to do everything right now. It's hard for me to slow down and enjoy my free time when I know there are always wedding plans I could be working on. I have been praying for God to give me peace about the plans coming together and help me to slow down and relax. Nate and I especially want to be sure we set aside quality time with each other each week, so we don't get too busy with wedding plans that we forget about really preparing for marriage together.

So...here are the wedding things I'm currenty working on:
* Printing/assembling menu cards
* Printing/assembling wedding programs
* Wedding favors
* Bridal party gifts
* Wedding weekend schedules

It's been fun so far, but we're definitely ready for the day to be here!
