LJO to LJK: Four Months to Go!

My Wedding

Happy New Year, friends! This by far feels like my most exciting wedding update post yet–we are FOUR little months away from the big day, and in our actual wedding year!! There are a million things I need to get done in the next 16 weeks (!!!!), but I am so happy to be in this stage of our engagement. I have been looking forward to planning my wedding for as long as I can remember, and now that we’re making decisions left and right, it’s getting more real by the day!
