You must read Cupcake Wedding's guest post on Souris Mariage.
I take the bar exam tomorrow (thank you for all your kind thoughts and support these last two months, and much luck to HitchDied and Meg's David and Mrs. Spaniel as well as anyone I've left off this list) and Wednesday. After that, we'll be back and I'll tell you how I caved to the indie-pressure and decided to make tissue paper poms. And vases. And the centerpieces.* I'm sorry to keep you in such suspense.
But Thursday starts a new chapter for Mark and myself. For the first time in my life, I will be free of academic obligations, but I will have adult responsibilities. I have been updating and sending out my resume for the last two days, and will continue to do so for the next month or two or three or for (the market sucks, in case you haven't heard). But for this reason, and also possibly because I am under some stress at the moment, Cupcake Wedding's post very nearly made me cry.
*Spoiler alert: mix of fresh flowers and dried flowers. Ordering dried stuff as a backup in case the fresh doesn't work out. Using old beer bottles as vases = cheap and easy. Win.
