Kimberly, I posted this at our site, too, but thought I’d come here and visit as well.
Good to hear from you. Congrats on your engagement. I think that a low-key style is the way to go. (We did a VERY low-key wedding and spent most of money on a big party afterwards for all our friends. Definitely worth it.)
Congrats also on your better blogging epiphanies, and here’s to being messy and failing. It’s under-rated, huh? (Oh, and here’s to bread, too. I’m currently working on one of those Amish friendship bread starter thingies. Mmm.)
