two months!

MONDAY WAS quite the landmark for me. monday marked exactly two months until my wedding day. and, you know, it's the strangest thing... ever since justin & i got engaged last october, time has been doing the strangest slow-down-speed-up things.

with the tedium of each week came the same sentiment:

will my wedding day ever arrive?

but then, with the close of each month, a different point of view was consistently expressed:

oh my gosh! seriously, only _____ more months until the wedding? how will i ever manage?

and that cycle went on & on until one day when i woke up & it was august. august, as in, two months until the wedding, august. and i'd say where has the time gone? or wow, this has gone by so fast! but i think i have explained the time warp, in detail, above.

if you would have asked me two weeks ago how i thought the wedding planning process was coming along, i probably would have given you a face. but - truthfully - as the RSVPs roll in, as after-parties get planned, & as detail after detail falls into place - i find myself relaxing a little bit more, & - dare i say it - enjoying it a little bit more.

something tells me i'm going to be one of those people who aren't really going to relax until they've made it down the aisle [or at least to white castle], but i can't tell you the feeling of pure relief i've developed in the last couple of weeks.

it's a breath of mental fresh air. and, boy, did i ever need it.

here's a little list of remaining tasks that have been sitting heavy on my mind. any thoughts, comments, or suggestions regarding these things would be greatly appreciated!

1. a good string quartet to play before, during, & for a little while after the ceremony.
2. finding a good florist. i know exactly what i want; now, i just need someone to execute it.
3. how to word invitations to an after-party. we are having a very small wedding, but are holding a party in honor of our friends upon our return from the honeymoon.

there are a million other little details, but those are the big kahunas that are left over as of now. next time i discuss wedding-related items, i'll be a mere month away! and i'm sure the craziness will really be kicking in at that point...

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
