When an evite just won’t do

Folks, its been a while, and for that I’m sorry. Life gets busy. It’s good to be back into blogging!

Lately all of my attention has been on the rooftop soiree we’re hosting in just a few weeks. All my fingers are crossed for a sunny, WARM day, and I’ve checked the extended forecast way too often hoping to see a trend in the right direction. With all the wind and chill we’ve had in D.C., I’m a little worried.

RSVPs are starting to trickle in, which means all the action is just beginning on my end. I’ve got some ideas on food and drink and a few little decorations, but mostly I’m just excited to hear from guests! It’s clear that I’m not the only one who loves this bride & groom, all of their friends & family are so excited to celebrate every step of the way with them.

I’m here to answer those questions!
