wedding things and anniversaries

mr. parks and i are closing in on our three year anniversary!  i may have mentioned this before, but it’s weird how you just start over counting the years together once you get married.  there should be some other way of describing our time together, like if you’ve been married for four years and were together for three before that, you say you’ve been together for four dash three or something.  sorry, stupid thought…

anyway, the wedding planning is going ok (i think) – our wedding coordinator will tell us for sure on wednesday.  i’ve been so proyd of us for setting a date that i felt like we could take a couple of weeks off.  apparently you’re never “off.”  there is always a ton of stuff to do.  i’ve started writing in the bride’s diary that mr. parks’ family gave me.  it’s going to be so fun to look back on it one day!  just like our blog – it’s incredible to scroll through the posts and pictures, and to see all that we have done together since the time that we started it – about a year and a half ago.  this is better than any scrapbook (especially considering that we would never make a scrapbook, as much as we’d like to).

ok – i’m going to go.  i’m at work and just wanted to write a quick little update.  speaking of work, i love it and i love working with my dad!  my first time on a private jet wasn’t so bad, either!! 

oh yeah – we’re going to chicago this weekend to see the band travis!!!  it’s going to be amazing – we’ll do our review when we get back!!

What a GREAT 4th of July!!!

Mr. Parks’ California family came out to visit us this past week, and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! His sister (my new sister!) stayed with us, and his parents stayed down the road at a little boutique hotel called The Lofts. This was the first time they had been to Columbus (aside from his sister, Bridget, who braved the cold in December and stayed with us this past winter!), and I think that they had a great time. On the TerraceWe got to hang out with my family a lot, and everyone hit it off – it made me wish that Mr. Parks’ family would relocate to Ohio and hang out with us a whole lot more! I never would have guessed that I would be so lucky as to have these wonderful people come into my life and become new additions to my family! We can’t wait to spend the weekend in good old Ottawa, Illinois, hanging out with dozens and dozens of Diederichs for the family reunion! I can’t believe how wonderful being engaged and getting married is – when it’s the right person; your best friend, it just feels like everyone you know is celebrating with you. I could not be any happier!!! Anyway, I just wanted to write a little blog to say thank you to my future in-laws, for being so loving and fun and friendly and easy! I think we could all have a good time wherever we are. I love you all!
