a Trail of Paperwork

I got a phonecall a few hours ago from a concerned Alex saying that since the New Year is upon us and there are only 4 months (give or take) to our wedding that we have a lot of paperwork ahead of us. Paperwork that included items like having both our birth certificates translated to Italian and getting a special stamp for them. Traveling to the Italian consulate in Houston (4 hrs away) with at least two non-related friends EACH and completing a series of paperwork there. Visiting the American Consulate in Florence once we arrive and getting a marriage certificate, etc. Stuff like this makes me anxious BUT one of my resolutions is to take everything as it comes and to not overreact as we do have a fair amount of time leading up to the day.

Also on the list.....find the perfect wedding dress. I hope to have that done by mid February!

Here's to setting realistic goals and to not working myself up over the small stuff (hee • hee • hoo, hee • hee • hoo)

Ah, paperwork... joy!

Well, they shouldn't give you trouble, it's just a formality, so I'm sure you'll do fine. It's just a matter of getting to it... I actually enjoyed going to the embassy, it seems like such a privilege to be able to go do something exciting in Europe :)
