Six Months Until 'I Do'

It's six months today until I get married! We have rented a house for three nights, which is where we will stay for the weekend of our wedding. We will be able to: prepare for the wedding, have the ceremony, enjoy a cocktail reception afterwards, and relax with family/friends, all at the one place. Some guests will also be able to stay at the accommodation together with us. It will be a small, intimate wedding of only 30 people. Just immediate family and a few friends. The property is on five acres, and has a pool and tennis court. It used to be a rural farm and has been converted to current style accommodation. It's very private and countrified. Perfect to relax and enjoy the celebrations of a weekend long, wedding.
A lot of things have been booked. Apart from the venue, our celebrant, photographer, caterers, flowers, and of course the all important dress have been selected. Even our wedding rings are ready! My dress has arrived in store, and I go for my first fitting on the 19th of this month.

My stitching these days has had to be put aside. I will definitely get back into it one day. My time at the moment doesn't allow the luxury of my hobby. There will be a chance in the future for me to be able to pick up needle and thread again. I look forward to when this day will come.

Happy stitching, my friends!
