It's That Time of Year Again!

Can you tell school has started back? Oh, yes. This time of the year, when I the first few weeks of school begin again, always has me completely behind in many other areas of my life, including blogging. This year, since moving to a new state and basically a new coast, has me feeling really swamped! Things started to calm down last Friday and this weekend, Adam and I were finally able to get in some time to have our engagement pictures taken. Check out this link to see a slideshow of the amazing work our photographers did! The weather and temperature was perfect. 74 degrees!!!! I love September! Fall is the best!

We lucked out being able to shoot our pictures up in Boulder since one canyon over from where our pictures were taken was a huge wildfire that had broken out and the smoke, blowing the opposite way from us, was insane. My heart goes out to all the families affected by this fire. I'm so thankful to be able to have been able to have our pictures taken where we wanted them.

We are basically three weeks out from the wedding and everything is starting to go so fast and feel incredibly real. I had my last dress fitting this afternoon and my brilliant seamstress did an incredible job fixing my dress. What was wrong with the dress, you ask? Well, I ordered it from a store in Florida with my hollow-to-hem measurements and when the dress came in, it was 3 1/2 inches too short. The hem hit where it was supposed to only when I was barefoot! No worries except I kinda wanted to wear shoes since my fiance is a whole foot taller than me. :) My seamstress worked some of her magic and added some beautiful material to the bottom to make the dress even more gorgeous than it already was.

Lots of fun little things are being planned and I can't wait to share some wedding photos in a few weeks! How is everyone else's September going?
