Wedding Wednesday: Three Months to Go!

    So we officially hit the three month mark.  Yikes!  I sort of panicked when I realized we had only 90 more days to go.  Last week I may or may not have gone to Michael's almost every day, because I felt like any tasks not yet done needed to be completed ASAP.   Today, I still  feel like I still have a wedding to do list a mile long, but I have calmed down.  I do still have 90 days.   I am happy to say most of the big stuff is done, at this point it's all the little stuff and crafting I need to work on.
