TWO MORE MONTHS (cue the panic and anxiety...yay)

I have no idea how time has passed this quickly, but here I sit typing a two month to the big day to-do list. It's so crazy. So much has been happening in our lives here in Kentucky and the busyness has led to additional stress as I try to fit in time for wedding planning (thank goodness for my sweet wedding planning duo).  We have been working on the farm when we have any extra time (weekends for my parents/Abe and random weekdays for me). Painting, landscaping, mulching....we've been doing it all. Luckily we had a meeting with our wedding planners a few nights ago and they helped us get organized and calm down a bit (If you don't have month of wedding planners, FIND THEM. They will legit save your sanity..especially if they are like mine and are willing to help more than just one month).

The house is finally coming together!!

At this point I'm so used to being behind on my never ending list that it hardly phases me! I know I need to sit down and get lots of minor things done, and I know I can do this easily if I just make the time to do it.


Tomorrow I have my first shower and I'm SOOOO excited! I'll be sure to update you all with pictures next week!
