What's going on?

You may be asking: What's going on with Katie? We haven't heard much from her lately.

Well, friends, the answer is: A LOT!

Before we get into the details of my life, I wanted to note that this is such a beautiful time in Seattle! I went for a short evening run yesterday and felt lost in a fairy land of so many flowering trees and gardens. Seeing all the gorgeous colors and blooms, along with the sun setting over the Olympic Mountains always clears away every last bit of stress and anxiety. I picked one little poppy (I think it's a poppy?) to put on my table.

So, the big news. Pete and I are getting married! We're almost certain we'll tie the knot in Seattle on April 2, 2011 (the day my parents got married and Pete's dad's birthday). AND, I have a new job! I'm finishing up at my current job tomorrow, and will begin a new position June 7. In addition, I'm continuing to take classes at Seattle Central Community College.

I'll try to post updates with our wedding planning. There's a lot to think about. But, I'm finding it to be a lot of fun! I've found The Knot's book on wedding planning to be helpful so far, and I'm dying to get my hands on Martha Stewart Weddings newest issue, with is all about DIY. They've already put some great content online including these templates and clip art for wedding decorations.

I'm hoping to put up a few posts in the next week or two on:
  • Our engagement and the adventures of wedding planning, and specifically planning a wedding in Seattle
  • A couple more quick dinners
  • The lessons we learned in New York (I'm waaaay behind on this one)
  • An update on my garden

P.S. I'll use any excuse I can to post a Marvin Gaye song. His version of: What's going on?

  2. Congratulations to you and Pete! Such wonderful news. Blessings and best wishes.
