Fall fields

Passed by this field on Sunday afternoon. It’s the quintessential image of fall in the rustic South.

Wedding Planning: No rest for the weary

Nearly two and a half months have flown by since the last post, and I can honestly say that this is literally the first moment I’ve had to even think about blogging.

We’ve become hermits, deeply entrenched in work and wedding plans, but here is a brief snapshot into the small highlights of life in Shreveport from the past two months.

1. Getting to work before dawn sometimes means a lot of grumbling (and dark eye circles that have inspired Halloween masks) , but it also means I get to see stunning sunrises everyday.

2. I have become obsessed with the slow cooker we received as a wedding present. It is the reason we haven’t become fixtures at the Chick-Fil-A takeout window. Below: Butternut Squash Risotto.

3. I discovered an organic delivery service in Shreveport. After a year of incessant squawking about a lack of Whole Foods, this has been such a treat. Thank you,  Off the Vine.

4. On a recent date night we went to Shreveport’s latest retail addition, Cavender’s. I put up a lot of resistance, but I was eventually coerced into getting a pair of authentic cowgirl boots. How do we feel about boots and wedding dresses?

One more week!
