Homecoming and Home Buying

There will likely be few entries this year. Even fewer than usual, because every extra moment is spent planning or organizing some aspect of our do-it-yourself wedding. Those of you connected to us via social media will recall the picture I posted of the massive GANTT chart to help manage this potentially runaway project.

This is what happens when a project manager gets married.

There is so much to do and so little time. Since we left Dominican Republic in the first week of this month, we’ve been handling various aspects of wedding planning in the inland Northwest. In the middle of that two-week window we popped over to Chicago for the very important element of dress shopping. It was a fun trip for Ray Ray, her mom, and aunt, and I got to visit people I love even more than the city itself.

Paint sampling for the bedroom. Furniture is still a ways off.

We’re now transitioning back to Washington, DC. Shortly after arriving we will sign the paperwork on a condo we locked down in the final weeks of living abroad. Adventurous, no? Foolish? Maybe. But we have every confidence in our realtor and his team. I mean, when a realtor is willing to go out of his way to give a Skype tour using his iPad while you’re overseas, you got someone special.

Much better to paint before everything arrives.

As I mentioned, I don’t know how much we’ll get to these pages this year. After settling in, everything will be about the big day in August. And that’s too bad. There’s a lot of interesting things going on in the world – and in life in general – these days. We’ll try to jump in where we can.
