Hello

I've decided to blog about my wedding.  I've been feeling the urge to blog for a couple of years now, but kept putting it off.  I've been waiting for the stars to align and for me to consider myself a good enough writer to share anything, my study to be miraculously straightened up enough to permit me to sit down/focus/write, for me to "have enough time when there's so much else going on"...blah blah blah, all excuses.  

Anyway, I've decided to start writing today, with this.

Franco and I are getting married this year.  Everything will take place at his parents' house in Groton, Massachusetts. Thirty-six guests, a little backyard wedding.  No rain plan as of yet. Haven't sussed out much, to be honest.

*My mind is brimming with decor ideas, but I keep telling myself I need to nail down (or officially delegate to others) the major logistics before I get wrapped up in decorating land.  

That being said, I've already put aside four window scarves that the rest of the decor will be centered around.  Here's a picture of them in a basket:

I'll post a better photo later.

Aaaaand I've started collecting vintage dessert plates for guests to enjoy their cake atop:

Six down, 30 to go.
