A beautiful day in the neighborhood.

Since I haven't posted in a month and a half, I suppose it goes without saying that things have been busy.

Fall semester's official, final line-up: sociology, social work, psychology, and anthropology with a professor who's apparently some sort of natural birth activist - so I feel like we'll get along well!

We finally found a church home - after much ado, we're thrilled with this church, and incidentally my grandparents (and former boss!) are members there. It's been very nice getting to see my grandparents every Sunday morning. New member classes start in early October, but we go every week now.

We have a foster puppy here with us. She is a 15 week old deaf Aussie named Natalie, and she is an absolute doll. It remains to be seen how long she will be here with us, but we're in no particular hurry to rush her along. She's sweet and spunky, phenomenal with frisbee, Violet and Java both adore her and go out of their way to be gentle with her. Dogs have kept our hands full, but what's new there? Wouldn't have that any other way. Pictures of Natalie will follow, naturally.

Wedding: save the dates are out, engagement pictures are taken, little things are getting done bit by bit. Favors are assembled, things like that. 14 weeks and counting until our wedding day - it seems so real and soon. I'm thrilled. More than likely, at least one dog will accompany us on our honeymoon. Come on, what did you expect?

The rest: slowly, slowly starting to make space and rearrange the house for the time, post-wedding, that we'll expand the family. Photography. Lots of new recipes. The daycare. Family. Eric's birthday last week. 15 days until the fall semester starts. The next two weeks are the calm before the storm - maybe I'll actually do some blogging, huh?

    1. I know, it seems like five minutes ago it was a year away, and now it's practically tomorrow! 14 weeks is nothing. Expect the world's longest photo post after the wedding. :)

    1. I removed it. I secretly think that people who require captcha are jerks, sometimes, and I've meant to just take it off for the longest time!
