For easter, I received the perfect easter basket from my future mother-in-law: a picnic basket!
I had been dying to use it, and this past Saturday the weather held out for us to have a picnic lunch at Freedom park. It actually turned out to be a really beautiful day.

We went to the farmer's market beforehand and picked up a bunch of fruits and veggies for our lunch!
We made turkey avocado wraps with curry mayonaise (soooo goood!), a fresh asian inspired salad of cukes, tomatoes, and red onion drizzled with mirin and rice vinegar, fresh peaches, and lemonade!
It was perfect :)

hey, i'm still here

I know it hasn't seemed that way since I haven't really posted in what seems like forever, but I'm still here!
and I've missed my tiny space on the interwebs.

(ok, for the next few lines I'm going to talk about wedding stuff. so you were forewarned.)
We have found a place AND set a date!
OCTOBER 27, 2012
ahhhh!! I can barely believe I am going to be a married woman in 6 months! And to get to marry such a handsome stud, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world :)
We've also got all of the catering, venue rentals, etc. - and a dress. I am so excited!!
It has all come together so quickly and seamlessly so far. And my family and friends have been so willing to give their time and talents, I am truly a blessed girl. 
I still have a loooong way to go, a lot of projects to tackle, a lot of loose ends to tie - but I am still trying to have fun in the process. Kevin and I still make sure we have date nights where we don't talk about the wedding and just focus on us, which is a nice breather!
It is nice to see everything begin to come together, but we are still on the hunt for a photographer and a cake, so if you know of any good (and reasonably priced) bakers and/or photographers let me know!

I'll keep ya posted,

I'm really getting behind on posting, but it's been pretty busy for me lately!
K and I are oh-so-close to deciding on a venue.
I am getting excited/nervous/joyful about all the plans that will be in the making soon.
I have been gathering all sorts of ideas and inspiration and thoughts, I can't wait to see them all come to life in (hopefully) only 7 months!
with that said, I leave you with a random assortment of photos from here and there:
