thanks everyone for your support! i go back and forth between frantically searching for a new venue and stomping my feet veruca salt style.
it's so frustrating when we did everything right in order to secure our venue and it still didn't help anything. yes we could seek legal action, and we still may depending on what happens, but with our wedding only 5 weeks away the reality is legal action won't help us get our venue back in time. so we're still swimming in the stress of finding something else. we're currently looking at new vacation rentals and nothing has happened yet, but i know everything will be okay.
today i did some craft store shopping for diy wedding decoration supplies. now i have all this pretty fabric to make pillows for our picnic, flags for garlands, hanging fabric frames, and general decoration stuff. when i was sewing and planning my designs it hit me that even if i have to have my wedding in the median of the freeway, i'm still getting to make the promise to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. after that everything started feeling much better.
love is a wonderful cure for all the terrible things that go wrong in the world.
sending you all lots of love for your world!
