I’ll tell you that with the exception of wedding invitations, which continue to be ridiculously and unnecessarily complicated, ceremony music has been the most difficult part of this wedding planning madness. It’s mostly complicated because I’m incapable of making a decision. It’s one of those “you can’t go wrong” type situations, but I DO NOT KNOW what to do.
I don’t know what songs.
I don’t know if they should be vocal or acoustic.
I don’t know what instruments.
I don’t know who should play the instruments.
I’ve got an idea, sure. But I’m fairly confident that it’s common courtesy to tell people these things ohhh, about a month ago or something. Vona Wilson, who’s several different kinds of fantastic and is co-officiating the wedding with Bryan Jones, told me to close my eyes or go sit in the field and imagine what the day looks like. What do I hear? It’s actually a pretty overwhelming thing to do. Obviously this isn’t the first time that I’ve envisioned my wedding day, but the closer we get, the more accurate the picture is. When I close my eyes now, I see the actual backdrop, the chairs that we selected from Southern Events, the colors of the fabric we rented… I can see almost everything, and how it all fits together. We’re 45 days away, for those who aren’t counting… although I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be counting.
Moral of the story: I’m excited. Still.

Tomorrow’s my birthday.
Jessie has moved back to Franklin… which I haven’t addressed in this blog yet but is INCREDIBLY important and worth mentioning. We all (minus Emily) went to Chuy's. Disclaimer about this: Dane the server wasn't a very good camera operator (Have you noticed that for the most part, no one that you ever recruit to take your pictures for you takes a good one -- how is that in this day and age, people still can't operate a digital camera very well?! Weird.) And I had just gotten done working out with Mike Flynt... so please, no judging.
AAAAAND I got some fun stuff from The 92nd PGA Championship at work the other day! A fun canvas bag, seen here, and a shirt/pullover thing, also seen here, that I’ve worn for like three days strait or something. I really like them.
