This isn’t the usual “Thursday Things” post. (Then again, since I haven’t posted in two months, what can be considered “usual” here anymore?)
We got married!
At the brewery where we met.
My husband is a babe.
Emotions were running high. In the best way.
I made our cakes.
We had a potluck meal.
And handed out favors of Seth’s strawberry jam.
It was everything we’d ever dreamed of. And more.
My best friend, Mandy, took some of these lovely photos.
And some of the not-so-lovely ones. (Real life, what’re ya gonna do?)
My husband’s (gosh, that’s fun to say!) friend, Josh, took some too.
We are slowly but surely setting up our new life together. That includes packing up everything Edgar and I own and moving it down to the Lake to be with Seth. It’s going to take time. And patience. And lots of boxes. But, as with everything else that’s been happening around here – it’ll get done. (To offer a very quick update: in a matter of eight weeks I have started a new job, planned the wedding with Seth, then had the wedding, only to then move to Seth’s, and finally travel to Europe.) And it’ll be wonderful. Just like our wedding day.
I hope to be here more. I missed y’all.
Cheers to the weekend!
Cheers to a year until we say “I do.”
Cheers to having a morning ceremony and a brunch reception and a make-your-own mimosa bar.

This post is going to be like canon balling into a pool. No wading. No tiptoeing. No testing the waters. There’s no time for that. Not when I’ve been so quiet for so long.
So, in the last month I’ve…
Moved into a duplex of my own.
Fallen deeply in love.
Gotten a badass tattoo from a badass woman.
Traveled to Tennessee to stand beside my best friend as she married the man of her dreams.
Successfully made the aforementioned best friend’s dream wedding cake and dessert table from an unfamiliar AirBnb kitchen.
Bought two super cute pairs of shoes.
I highly encourage doing any or all or some of these things.

Golly! Where did the time go?!
I cannot believe that it’s been two months since I started Layer Cake Mondays. And I cannot believe that the wedding I started the whole thing for came and went this weekend.
However, I can believe that in the midst of all that hubbub, the March Madness tourney being held in town, and Northwestern’s nail-biting defeat during a particularly hectic shift last night that I completely forgot to whip up a new layer cake to share with y’all. Whoops.
Instead, look at these photos of the cake and cupcakes I made to celebrate Annie and David’s union!
Their layer cake was my lemon raspberry recipe, as were 100 of the cupcakes and another 100 were chocolate coffee stout!
Happy Monday, everyone! Here’s hoping for a fantastic week!
