The First Stages

BY LIZ

Just over a week ago, Nick and I got married (again). During the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, our house was slowly invaded by wedding stuff. Decorations. Gifts. Attire. Accessories. Invitations. Crafting supplies.





On the Thursday prior to the wedding, we had a clear apartment for all of 1 hour when Nick and my Dad hauled all of the wedding stuff off to Hollin Hall.

Then the flowers invaded the apartment.


Then the wedding chaos invaded the apartment.

I had just started to get it all cleaned up and straightened out. Now it's time to start packing Nick up for the long haul to Kabul. And this is what happened to the apartment (for maximum impact, click on each photo).




And this is just the living room. There's stuff piled up in the hall and in the bedroom too. I am dealing with the chaos by compulsively wiping the counters and sweeping the small areas of floor that remain uncovered.
