Ali put me on to this most excellent blog - they give captions to uber-trendy house pictures. And I love it. (I also love a lot of the homes featured - call me perverse!)

Sometimes this blog becomes a visual 'thinking out loud' activity for me. For a long time, I've been wanting to streamline our study/spare bedroom. I'm thinking that I'd love to get rid of the spare bed, and just focus on a cleaner, more tidy room. But I also like the idea of a spare room for friends to come and stay... These studies make me want to start again from a white piece of paper!

These stunning reading nooks on Black Eiffel evoke such peaceful calm. It seems pretty decadent to have a reserved place for reading, but pretty awe-inspiring, too. Sigh. A reading nook, in the sun, with a warm cup of tea or cool glass of water. Delightful.
Speaking of tea, I recently tried some incredible Turkish apple tea - have any of you tried to make it?

I can't wait to be married, but I also can't wait for the admin to be over! Run sheets, late rsvps, additional rsvps (Oh! My partner and I would love to come! Hmm, didn't invite partner...), additional invite requests, menu changes, general complaints/suggests for changes all contributed to me having hilarious wedding dreams. Like the one where I was walking down the aisle with my laptop, because I hadn't had time to edit our vows. Quelle romance. Or the one where every woman at the wedding was wearing a wedding dress. That was a doozy.
So this was the best image to describe my mental state for the day. Oh yeah. And I admit I giggled at it for quite a while. Enjoy!
(Normal transmission to resume soon! Promise!)
(Note to all friends who are reading this: I am actually fine, but looking forward to being excited once all the boring leg work has been done.)

My lovely sister came over on the weekend to give the Pal and I our first wedding present. We had no idea what this might be, but the thought of taking a short break from doing seating arrangements (!!!) was so delightful that we welcomed her with open arms. Em has also been an incredible support in the lead up: she knows I'm working a lot and just manages to be helpful in a very seamless and non-pressure way.
And we were blown away. Em knows how much I love these old railway posters, and made one for us which chronicles some of our adventures from our first date to our wedding day. It's not only a stunning piece of art, but I catch myself looking at it with dreamy, faraway eyes, remembering how far we've come, and all the adventures to come.
Thank you Em - we couldn't love it, more.
