Although a lot got done in the past month, it’s all been further and far between and much less concentrated than it was in the first few months. I’m sure, however, that by mid-July, everything will start to pick up speed again. At this point, I’m trying to clear stuff off my plate so I can focus on the wedding for most of the summer. What I have discovered is that there’s an awful lot of junk I’ve been wasting my time on. In a way, this wedding has helped me prioritize better. There are definitely some projects I’m kicking to the curb now that even after the wedding I won’t miss!
