Wedding Week!

Hello Hello-
It is wedding week!!! It is really starting to come together and hit Katie and I. This weekend was fantastic.

Katie and I know that next weekend will be a very crazy time. Because it will be so crazy we wanted to take some time out and create some special time for ourselves.

This weekend was planned so that it would be very low key prior to the wedding. Most of the left work had been completed except for a few emails here and there. On Friday night Katie and I enjoyed a great pizza from one of our favorite places. I had a few pizzas shipped in from Giordano's in Chicago. It did not disappoint.

We also exchanged out gifts to each other. Katie gave me a great display of my grandmother, who passed away just before the proposal. In the display it had mounted one of my grandmother's handkerchiefs along with a poem from her funeral. It is a very touching piece that is already hanging. I  gave Katie a pen an ink drawing that was framed of her high school chapel, which is also where we are getting married on Saturday. It was a great way to start the festivities.

Now on to today's pictures. This is another set that left me speechless. I mailed the Save The Date to a trekking company in India asking them to take it to Mt. Everest. I never EVER expected to even get a response from them. Sure enough, one day my inbox had an email asking me what exactly we wanted and whether there was a time frame. Later that month we received the pictures below. They are simply stunning and some of my favorites.

Thanks for reading.
