What a week! Being back in my hometown means I don’t have to hop on a plane to see friends and family, and it also means I get to meet up with some awesome folks that until now I’ve only ever known through the interwebs. This week I had dinner with Meg (twice!), hung out at Jordan‘s craft night, and got snacks with Caroline and Daniel from Tinywater. And I’ve got lots more dates planned in the coming weeks (like a donut date with Anne).

And now, some links…

I have so many blank books in my life, and I’m not sure I’ll ever get through them all, but I think I need to add this inspiration pad to the stack.

The entire wedding party wore Toms.

Have a wonderful weekend, dear readers!

I blinked and now it’s July – how did that happen!? I have a little counter on my Google homepage that tells me how many days until our wedding (yes, yes, I’m a big nerd), and I just can’t believe how quickly the time is flying by. Our 4th of July plans are as yet unformed, but I think they should involve patriotic desserts and sparklers. What about you? If you haven’t already left for the holiday, then here are some links to take you into the weekend.

PS – I just can’t keep it to myself any longer: if all goes as planned, I’ll be launching the new Snippet & Ink in about a week! It’s been a long time coming, and I’m totally anxious and excited about it, and I can’t wait to share it with you…

This week involved a lot of catching up on emails and blogging, but I think I’m starting to make a dent. My goal is to set a good schedule for myself, so that I have some time to enjoy the summer, because (and I think anyone who’s self-employed will agree) it’s just so easy to never stop working! So, I’m trying to be a better time manager, to make time for things like the farmers market and art exhibits and trips up or down the coast.

The other thing I want to make time for, and that I’m just so excited about, is starting to plan our wedding ceremony. As much as I’m having fun thinking about all the little design details, choosing readings and music for our ceremony and talking with our officiant about what we want for our wedding really reminds me of why we’re planning this event in the first place, (and it makes me feel not so bummed out about the fact that getting married in December means no garden roses). I’ll probably talk more about all of this more down the road, but for now we’re really just getting started. How are you going about planning your wedding ceremony? Any great readings or resources that I just have to know about?

The other thing I’ve been doing is catching up on my blog reading, so I’ve got loads of links for you to enjoy!

Well lovelies, have a wonderful weekend. I hope you get a chance to enjoy some sunshine!

PS – I just remembered something! Tomorrow is our would-be wedding date, if we hadn’t decided to put things on hold. We were planning on getting married at my family’s summer home in Montana, where it’s supposed to storm. Funny how things work out… I think my honey and I will go out for dinner here in San Fran, instead.

This has been quite the week – so so good, and so exhausting. I haven’t had a chance to spend much time browsing my favorite blogs, so I only have a few links to share with you today. But I do hope you’ll enjoy them!

After loading a moving truck in the Austin heat and humidity (if my honey is reading this: you’re my hero), and then a three-day drive, we arrived at our new home! Well, our new temporary home – we’re house sitting while my mom is away for the summer, which means we have some time to find our own place (and which also means we’ll be moving all this stuff again, just not as far). Our kitty is exploring everything, and has discovered how fun it is to slide across hardwood floors. I’m working on some great posts for you, but until I can get those finished and posted, here are some awesome links to check out…

My dream honeymoon spot.
