Oh hey, interwebz!
A lot has been happening the last six (eight?) months. Wedding plans are in full swing with a five month countdown beginning tomorrow (EEE!). We have decided to host our reception at The Roostertail. Zuul and I hemmed and hawed for a while, kept deciding on venues that were perfect, but in the end we needed something that we didn’t have to worry too much about. The short of it came down to the amazing view and impeccable service received upon meeting with the staff. We also recently had our engagement photos taken by our AMAZING photographer, Mishelle Lamarand Photography. I am so happy we chose her to document our special day. If these photos and our experience this one cold Sunday morning are any indication of Mishelle’s work ethic and enthusiasm, I can’t wait for our wedding to get here just to work with her again.
I was also lucky enough to participate in the Motor City Mapping (MCM) project through work. I was originally pulled into help prep any operational tasks that someone would need to be trained on, but eventually began participating in the check-in process every day. I met some amazing people from Detroit and Quicken Loans. It was a huge roller coaster of 10+ hour days for three months, but I wouldn’t trade the experience and connections I made for all of the lost sleep.
Hmm…what else is going on? Oh yeah, we bought a house! We are officially home owners in Detroit! We have been interested in a few different neighborhoods for a while, but it was some of the relationships and connections I made through the MCM project that really solidified our decision to choose East English Village. The house is in great condition, it’s previous owner did some fantastic updates and we are ecstatic to move in and make it our own.
Once we are all moved in and set up, I will be sure to update everyone on the house’s progress. Until then…<3
