Backdrop Party

A little over a month... forty five days to be exact. Forty five days until I marry the man of my dreams. I still can't believe it. These past few months have been blurry. Between my sister moving out of the apartment earlier this month, the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and Alex & I settling in to the fact that we finally have our own place together. It's all been one magical blur.

Last Saturday my soon-to-be mother in law asked some of her friends over to help Megan, Jessie, my mom & me make the backdrop for the wedding ceremony. The backdrop consists of dry wax parchment paper circle, cut in half and turned into cones. Which are then strung in a delicate chaos onto yarn.

We had over 2,000 circles and successfully strung all of them. But we need about 1,000 more to completely finish the backdrop. It was a little frustrating to not finish it, but luckily I still have time to. Even if a part of me is starting to get *slightly* stressed. 

But yes, forty five more days and Alex & I will be married. I seriously cannot wait!
