Welp, I didn't get to this as quickly as I'd hoped. In our defense, we've been very busy this week in particular: we're preparing for our trip to Ohio for the LBM, Kate is finishing up her application to graduate school, and of course we are planning our wedding. It's hard to believe it's been over a month (again) since our last substantial update.
Oops! We managed to fall asleep at the wheel for more than a month. It's lucky we didn't crash into a ditch or an ocean or an endangered animal sanctuary or something.
We went on a reception-hall scouting mission last weekend. Behold the fruits (and vegetables) of our toiling!
