Logistics, good and bad

People are weird.

Wound up working yesterday, due to some logistics about letterhead and other details even more mundane. No biggie, but I can feel it when I've had less time to decompress. I've got it pretty good; I just like having a rhythm and notice when it's off.

Speaking of logistics and being off, I've spent an inordinate amount of time in email ping-pong with a travel agent only to learn that A) a flight I wanted to book after the wedding no longer exists, and 2) she couldn't book tickets for me anyway. The latter point would have been great to know up front and seems to defeat the purpose of actually being a travel agent. Once I learned it was a bust, I got everything set up on my own in an hour or so without a hitch. That'll teach me not to just do things on my own.

Logistical silliness aside, I'm looking forward to our wedding more and more daily. That's been the last piece for me to really warm up to. From engagement (and even before engagement), I've been excited about our marriage and building a life together with barlow_girl. And further down the road, planning the honeymoon got more and more exciting as the details fell in to place. But I have to admit to a certain amount of ambivalence about the wedding itself—on the one hand, it's good to celebrate and honor how God reveals Himself through marriage with friends and family; on the other, it's a boatload of details, negotiations, and stresses for something that could be accomplished in a few minutes with our pastor. As it draws near and the specifics firm up, however, I grow increasingly excited for everyone to come together to witness and celebrate with us. Because really, it's not just about us, and I don't know when else we'll ever be blessed to enjoy time with such a sampling of people we love. Perhaps it's just becoming more real. Whatever the case, I like it.

hooray! we're getting married! :D
PS - it really is a "sampling" - velouria73 remarked last night how there were 8 different states on her page of addresses alone!
How cool is that? Our invitations are mailed!
it's cool, and by cool i mean totally sweet.
PPS (i'm going for a record on my # of comments in a single post of yours) - our state total? 17, baby. not bad for less than 100 invites. :D

That's the perfect way to describe how I felt at Peg's wedding. I tried to explain it...you've said it exactly!
It's been funny how the realization has been creeping up on me. I'm thankful.
So excited for you guys. :D
We are quite stoked!
At least you have the BEST photographer in the world. That's one little detail you don't have to worry about at all. :D

I'm so happy for y'all! And I can't wait to see the pictures!
It's been so good not to even need to give the photography a second thought. Seriously (I'm not just sucking up).
seriously.
Understood! It can easily be one of the biggest worries, and here you can pretty much forget there even is a photographer because of utter trust in her competence. Has to be a great feeling!
Wedding yayness!

Remember when I said David told me that he said he wasn't scared about marrying me and you said he was lying? :)
