Where Go the Boats?

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Dark brown is the river,
Golden is the sand.
It flows along forever,
With trees on either hand.

Green leaves a floating,
Castles of the foam,
Boats of mine a-boating—
Where will all come home?

On goes the river
And out past the mill,
Away down the valley,
Away down the hill.

Away down the river,
A hundred miles or more,
Other little children
Shall bring my boats ashore.

Take dad to work
Meet up with wonderful future sister-in-law to do wedding shopping and hang out
Meeting with wedding cake person
Eye doctor appointment
Pick dad up from work

That's the plan. I'm currently at a wi-fi coffeeshop, enjoying some hot chocolate... and hi speed internet.

(edit: I actually posted this after getting home from all of that... whew... we got a lot accomplished! But it feels good to be home after being gone all day.)

Did I happen to mention...

...that I'm getting married to Micah? Oh, I did? Aha. Moving right along...

Micah has posted a satirical, how-it-didn't-happen version of Our Story. It makes me laugh. Then he posted on the idea of finding 'The One'. Good thoughts.

So... do you know what getting engaged means? Yes, yes, getting married, but before that. Wedding planning! It started with stacks of paper, but now I have a three ring binder rapidly filling with checklists, scribbled notes, purple sticky notes, green ribbons ("What do you think of this color of sage?"), pictures of dresses, contact information for a cake person... you get the picture. :-)

If any of you have wedding planning advice, feel free! (I may not follow it, but I'll appreciate it anyway!) Especially if you have suggestions for how to incorporate my brothers in the ceremony without them lighting candles. (The thought of young boys with flammable materials at my wedding gives me the shivers.) Two of them are at that in between stage, too old for ring bearers, too young to be ushers- but I want them to be involved. Also, any suggestions on classical pieces of music to use before the ceremony would be lovely. :-)
