Sealed Envelopes

One of my college friends is in town with her mom from Texas on a leaf peeping expedition. I met them for dinner in Portsmouth last night. They are heading up to Maine, wandering the coast and coming back down next week to fly home. I would be jealous if I didn't have my own getaway planned.
In a little bit I leave to have my hair cut and colored. I waited as long as possible so it would be freshly done for the wedding. We have finished the last minutes details for down there. Cake, champagne, salon, marriage license, photographer.
We have booked a band for the party here, the wedding band inscriptions (a secret from each other) were dropped off at the jeweler and we just have a cake tasting to do before all of the plans here are set too. It is nice to have some last details to do in the week before but nothing too stressful and frenzied. I feel the same way about holiday shopping. Ten more days.
