19 days

here at casa de lemon pie we are currently singing to the tune of '19 days until wedded bliss'

can i tell you how exciting that is?!

after 18 months of planning and negotiating and basically being all consumed by 'the wedding' for the past 6 months we are nearing the end of our engaged journey and you know what...i am a little bit sad.

i know that there will be so much greatness in the future but i really have loved every second of planning.

i am really going to try and take some time over the next few weeks to really really enjoy it and relish it.

maybe the mister and i will even take one little last adventure as an unmarried couple ::le sigh::

are you still here?

terrible i know this whole being gone thing.

however, there has been lots and lots happening.

moving and weddings mostly.

and growing.

lots and lots of growing. personally. professionally. and well i'd say that spring has sprung.

you'll be seeing me more [i say that a lot i know].

cross my heart and hope to die stick a needle in my eye. i swear i swear i will.

until next time

head over heels

swooning over here folks.
like big time.

while searching for what seems to be an unattainable item for our wedding i was stopped dead in my tracks by the lovelier than lovely Ez.

oh i am sure that you already know her and she is probably already your bestie [i always seem to arrive i think what they call 'fashionably' late to the party] but i ... well i seem to have lost my words.

her little place on the internets creature comforts will seem to do that to you.

so i have this friend...

this post is totally not what you're thinking.

but i do have this friend.

who i have known for a total of ohhhh somehting like 8 weeks.

and you know what she did in that 8 weeks?

she made me love her TO DEATH.

and now ... well her little spot beside me will be empty from 9-5.

and yes i will still see her sweet face doing many more fun things like:

drinking lattes
painting ceramics
invading other cities


i will MISS her.

and not the kind of miss that you are like 'ohwahteveritsnotabigdeal'

the kind of miss where you're like WHOAireallymissyou.

the silver lining though [because there is always always a silver lining]

is that this is one of those times that just when you think your life was really perfect, it got more perfecter.

you know that feeling right?

oh goodness i hope you do.

for real?

the past week it has hit me like a freight train.

we are getting married...

in nine freaking months.

that is 100% totally less than a year.

all of those DIY projects that i have been dreaming about are going to start coming together.

all of those offers to help are going to be cashed in on.

all of my dreams of registering for our new house are going to come true very very soon.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEE i could not be more excited.

something new.

did you ever have something that you wanted to SCREAM from the roof tops but under absolutely no circumstances were you allowed to mention even a whisper?

that is how i am feeling at this moment.

like i just want to let it all out.

and tell you everything.

tell you every single last bit of every detail that i know.

except that i don't have all the details. and i'm not too sure of what i know. except for that it is going to be a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

almost but probably not quite as amazing as the truffle girls who are rocking my world so.damn.hard. right now.

well worn

Cosmic girl, originally uploaded by E.m.m.a...

years of artful dancing. and aching.

the thrills of the stage. and the quietness of backstage.

graceful bows and pliets.

something about this photo instantly reminded me of my 5 years short of life long friendship with my lovely tara.

i think it might be that these shoes seem to be worn in all the right places and look oh so comfortable.

like you could slip them on every day and dance dance dance.

just like us.
