this month’s nablopomo theme is “letters: love letters, typography, photos of interesting signs — quite a few possibilities this month!” well, i love all ya’ll, of course, and i am fascinated by typography, and it’s DC, there are **plenty** of interesting signs…but i’m still thinking this is a once-a-week theme for me.
but that being said, man, i have received a LOT of letters this past month. apparently, this year is when half of the non-legally-attached people i know are feeling the need to stop living in sin, as it were. and it’s either a gloriously amazing astral alignment, or just the wisdom of not being 23 anymore, but all 4 of these wonderful couples are indeed really excellent pairings.
Kara & Ryan‘s is on may 10th in the homeland, and these guys totally win the award for best invite. they had little pictures of rubber duckies in tux & gown, and reminded their recipients to RSVP with “don’t duck out on us!” should have been overly cutesy, but is instead A++. best part: RSVP card says: “will you be joining us? _______ (exclamation)! we (can/cannot) attend…” the opportunity to say something charmingly salacious in the adult version of madlibs is highly amusing.
Gaby & Larry are having a private civil ceremony, oh, sometime late this month, i believe. but they’re having a big post-nuptial schindig about 2 seconds from my house may 31st.
Candace & Bobby are likewise doing the something low-key, either a small civil ceremony, or a ceremony at their/a friend’s house, followed by the big party on the lawn, august 8th. bonus points for the easiest wedding anniversary date EVAR: 8.8.8.
2 days later, on the 10th, Melissa & Chris will be having a way swanky affair in napa valley, at a super posh resort. romance & wine country, aaah, i’m blissed out just thinking about it.
now all i have to do is just get busy buying some plane tix.
