I miss writing for you guys. I literally just took a break from tagging posts (it's open in the other window) to send this small missive. Remember when I told you we were going to have a How-To section on the new site? And about how How-To would be The Big Stuff (DJing your wedding with and ipod, writing a ceremony), as my answer to the endless mind numbing, soul crushing DIY must-do bridal projects, and billion dollar "DIY-style" weddings (or is that only my soul being crushed?)

You all (every one of you, even the quiet ones) have meant the world to me this year. Take that Team Practical bravery with you into the holidays, when people *might* share an opinion or two about your plans.

Anyway. The same thing happened to poor Cara this weekend, who is crying in her kitchen (or hopefully sleeping tight with a lovely fluffy rabbit right now, dreaming of happier blog days).

And speaking of Wild Things, as you all go off to your weekends of wild rumpuses, I wanted to leave you with a story that reminds me of what love really feels like, as told by the woman who introduced me to the word blog:A little boy (maybe 5 years old) wrote to Maurice Sendak telling him how much he loved his books, his drawings, everything about him. As you might imagine, Sendak gets a lot of fan mail, but he was so moved by this one that he wrote the boy back and enclosed an original drawing, just for him.
The boy was so overjoyed when he received the drawing that he ate it, the entire thing, every last shred of pulp and ink.
His mom wrote back to the author, telling him the story. Sendak was thrilled, saying that that was the greatest compliment he had ever received.
Go, go, go. Go find yourself something you love, and eat it all up.
I wrote a sequence of small posts where I tried to capture a bit of each part of the wedding, right after we got back from our honeymoon. Next week I'll be sharing the vignettes in chronological order. It's bittersweet for me, sharing our wedding here. I've been writing about the process for so long that writing the final chapter is both hard and wonderful.
