I found out that I'll be teaching a class at the Maryland Institute, College of Art during the Spring semester of 2008, so we've decided to move the wedding date from April 26th until the end of May. This way, classes will be over by then and I won't have to contend with with commuting to Baltimore and preparing lessons at the same time as the wedding. This is especially easy to do since we haven't really planned or booked anything yet for the earlier date. When we've set a definite May date, I'm sure we'll let everyone know.

Well, even though Jesse went to Lititz this weekend to see his folks, I ended up staying here and working on an assignment. So our wedding planning is getting put off for at least another week. We will actually do this, I promise!
Here's a pic of my lovely engagement ring in the meantime. Jesse looked for months in different antique shops and finally found this beauty. The band is white gold and from 1928 and the stone is from the 1940s. I LOVE it! He had to guess my size, 'cause I'm not really a jewelry person, and he did a good job because it fits perfectly!

Well Deanna and I are about to embark on a year(+) long journey into wedding preperation and planning. This weekend we are going to start looking for wedding and reception locations in my hometown of Lititz, Pa. I know it would be more customary to have the wedding in the bride's hometown, but we decided more of our guests will be coming from the northern region rather than the south, so it makes more sense for everyone's traveling purposes. I was more than willing to have the wedding in Alabama, but I'm happy to be celebrating this event back home. So Deanna and I are going to be updating this blog to let you the reader (whoever you are) know where we are at with planning, where we are registering, what are the colors, and all that fun stuff. Suggestions and recommendations are more than welcome. Thankfully, this is our first time planning a wedding, so we are still pretty new when it comes to this stuff.
