Whew! What a week it’s been. I’ve been meaning to write a few posts, but between my bridal shower this past Sunday and spending a long weekend with family and friends, catching up with people was the priority. But now that I’m getting into a routine with work and wedding planning, I’m hoping to get back into a regular posting schedule. I’ve missed blogging!
Anyway, on Friday evening, after getting through an extremely crowded Grand Central Station, Josh, Maple and I boarded a train to head home to Connecticut. It was Maple’s first train ride, and she did really well, thankfully. After checking out the passengers and looking out the window (and at her own reflection in the window), she snuggled in between us. Too cute.
We arrived at home and stayed with my parents, enjoying dinner and chatting. The next day we saw Josh’s family, and Josh’s mom treated me to a manicure and pedicure, which I rarely do, but it was a treat to have some alone time and be pampered. I met up with my sister Saturday night for dinner, and we finally repotted a plant that we’ve been meaning to do for over a year. Time flies.
On Sunday I was up early to get ready for the shower, and we headed over to set up the room at The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s in Darien. My mom organized most of the day, including mums on the tables and local honey as favors. The décor was cute and festive and had a hint of fall to it.
I have to be honest: I can’t remember that much of the shower. Between greeting everyone, sitting with my friends (including some I don’t see too often), helping with games, opening presents, and trying to eat a few bites a food, the day was kind of a blur. It went by way too quickly, and made me realize that our wedding day will be the same, but more extreme.
I loved the shower and had a wonderful time, and it was great to have a long weekend at home. I feel really lucky. Thanks again to my parents and sister for putting the day together, to the friends and family who helped out, and to all who came to celebrate. Just a few months until the wedding! I can’t believe it.
