Thank you all so much for your insightful comments on last week's post about charitable giving. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I haven't made any decisions yet, but you all have given me some great ideas to think about.
How was everyone's weekend by the way? We were in Dallas for a long weekend to attend Jason's cousin's wedding. It was a lovely wedding and seeing Gabe and Kristi's happiness and love for each other got me even more excited (if that's even possible) to marry Jason. I'd never been to Dallas before (or Texas, for that matter!) so on Friday we put on our tourist caps and did a little sight-seeing. We went to Dealey Plaza and the Sixth Floor Museum, which I found fascinating as I've always had an interest in all things related to JFK. Later, we hit up the Dallas Museum of Art to soak in a little culture. (Since I work at an art museum, I always make a point to visit one in every major city I travel to.)
It was a great weekend, but alas, I now feel like I'm playing catch-up with sleep, cleaning + laundry, wedding planning, exercising, etc. I'm trying to practice some extra self-care this week (eating well, taking lots of deep breaths, and saying no to unnecessary activities) so that I don't get overwhelmed. Things might be a little quiet on the blog this week as I try to get centered again, but hope to be back at it soon!
In the meantime, I leave you with a couple fun links:

P.S. The cherry blossoms are almost at peak bloom! I'm going to try to take some photos this Friday since they are supposed to peak on Friday and Saturday.
