The countdown begins: do I hear wedding bells? Yes, yes I do.
When I was a little girl, I always tried to make the summer season last as long as possible. Growing up in Montreal, Canada, all the neighborhood kids knew to never take the warmer days for granted. We’d spend play dates outdoors, basking in the sunshine’s rays from the early morning to swatting mosquitoes late at night.
I’m still the same way. Summer is my favorite season: I love the fashion, I love the weather, and I love the idea that social gatherings involve terraces and pitchers of sangria. I strive to make the most of my days and push for wearing denim shorts even through to early September.
This year’s a little different. With our upcoming autumn nuptials, I couldn’t be more eager for summer to pass just a little bit quicker. From seating arrangements to final dress fittings, we’re definitely down to the final details. When Joe proposed last August, everyone warned us how the year would just fly by (and yes, everybody was right).
One part nervous, one part excited, a dash of extreme emotion, and a cup of calm, cool, and collective-ness… I’m just a bit of everything for this wedding. The most important part is that I’m taking in every moment, and that my wonderful husband-to-be is constantly by my side.
