I bought my shoes for the wedding today. They’re stunning, magical, very me, and perfect. They match my dress. They match the mood and the energy of the wedding.
I wish I could write so much more about them, but my lovely wife-to-be reads this blog, and we are keeping things traditional. Meaning we don’t want to see or know anything of each others dresses, hair/makeup, or shoes!
On a completely unrelated note, I can’t seem to stop coloring in my adult coloring book.
These pages were colored and captured over the course of this past weekend. We took it easy, and stayed inside, and made love, and cuddled, and tried not to spend money. We are enjoying the last of any laziness before things get too crazy. We’re trying to soak up whatever peace and calmness we can muster before it all begins.
I haven’t yet had my first dress fitting (it’s next week), and we haven’t yet moved into the townhouse (that’s next month). But, these things are happening so soon. Everything, is happening so soon.
This is the calm before the storm. This is that time of restlessness and waiting. The dead middle of summer. When the whisper of Fall and new beginnings is right around the corner, but the stillness and pause of the Summer hasn’t yet run its course.
I’m surprised by how calm I still feel at this point, less than two and a half months from our wedding and honeymoon. But, something deep in my heart and my bones knows this won’t last. I’ll enjoy the calmness while I can. I’ll spend hours and hours coloring, while I can.
