with the wind

Monday March 24, 2008

Living in the city means never being Alone.

We can’t ever find a space that no one is in…
We can’t let Judy be off leash and just let her be free and run with the wind.

Except if you go to Mankato and head to the double fenced baseball fields surrounded by trees.

I am sure she was the happiest she has ever been. I know I was.
It was amazing to see her in her element. Running, sprinting, chasing at full speed. She just let herself go.

I felt myself let go.
It was just so open. And wide. And freeing.

No one was around.
No one was coming.

caked dry

Is spring here or what???

The snow is melting and the backyard is full of mud.

Judy is a total mess when she comes in from outside – mud is actually caked dry on her nose from digging up our yard.

I can’t wait for the yard to be dry and the grass to be green!

we miss jake!

wedding update 3

Tuesday March 11, 2008

Less than four months left.
To plan, prepare, and procrastinate!

We have the date, place, menu and drinks (almost all) figured out. The menu is fabulous and the cake is going to be delicious.

We have picked a color! And this dress in Navy for Katie and Cassie! Jake, Ben and Peter’s attire is figured out as well. Very casual but classy.

Our invitation design has a theme and we are just waiting on some botanical images that we ordered online! We are thinking about using Gocco to make them.

Flower meeting next Friday. Photographer is in the works.

I have three wedding showers scheduled and I am looking forward to all of them.

We have registerd at and Macy’s.

There are some very important things that still need to be decided (and paid for!) but I think we are doing pretty well. I am not waking up in a cold sweat at night worried about anything (just yet!).

ice cream man!
