Take a deep breath… it’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you guys but I am doubly glad for it to be the weekend; maybe even more so because fall seems to be rolling into LA and that means the beginning of boot and sweater season (pretty much my favorite time of the year).

This week was my inaugural week here on the WeddingLovely, and we definitely had some great posts featured:

We also added some great new designers to the WeddingInviteLove registry, including:

And to round it all out, here are a couple great links from across the web this week:

Enjoy your weekend and take advantages of some of the last days of summer…we’ll see you on Monday!

I miss my cat. Is that okay to admit? I’m heading home from Portland today and I can’t wait to see my cat (named Westley, after everyone’s favorite dread pirate.) Also, that’s a queen bed — my cat is gigantic.

Speaking of Portland — What. An. Amazing. City. I was up here to speak at DjangoCon (about how I started WeddingLovely and inspiring others to start their own projects), and it went wonderfully. My first time speaking at a conference solo! And THEN there was the Portland stationery meetup which was oh so much fun. Thank you to all the wonderful Portland lovelies who came out to chat — pictures coming soon!

(The only) photo from the meetup on Wednesday! The wine bar we moved to was way too dark so this was the only good picture taken. In any case, happy Friday everyone! I’m stressing out because on Monday I fly out to Portland and on Tuesday morning, I have an hour long presentation to give! New, scary, experiences, but it should be fun.

Remember when blog posts here used to happen around 7am PST? Perhaps next week will be better! (I blame the poison oak, which is still plaguing me.)

This week was one of the most difficult weeks ever — I had an amazing time camping in Big Sur (seen above), however, I came back with poison oak everywhere. I certainly learned my lesson and am currently paying the price. *itch itch itch…*

In happier news — it’s Friday and the weekend is just around the corner! I’m going to spend it in bed covered in a calamine, so it’s up to you all to have fun in my place.

Interesting news and tidbits from the week:

Phew, it’s been a busy few days for me behind the scenes — apologies for the lack of blogging! But big awesome things are happening, I assure you…!

Photo above is from the first invitation meetup in San Francisco last week! We didn’t get many pictures (I’m kicking myself for not getting a group one), but it was a great couple of hours talking about the “business” and other fun things over snacks, dinner, and wine. See more photos here!

The next meetup is tentatively scheduled around the last week of August to the first weekend in September. Any thoughts on whether a mid-week happy hour or a weekend date would be better?

Off to go camping in Big Sur — see y’all next week!

The invitation meetup is tonight — it’s going to be small (about six people) but I’ll be providing some snacks and wine, so it should be fun! Anyone is welcome, we’re holding it in SOMA in San Francisco, and there should be more happening around in other cities soon!

Last night was also the Two Bright Lights blogger/photographer party in SF — so much fun. Did anyone else attend?

Phew, busy week! This is the last weekend I have with my significant other before he runs back to Canada for a bit so I plan on relaxing. What are your plans for the weekend?

I’m horribly behind on all posts this week due to the return of my hunbun from his three week visit to Canada. We’re heading out to do some good ol’ car camping this weekend with my best friend from high school (I designed his wedding invitations and I was the “best woman”, awwww).

Next week: Big new feature for WeddingInviteLove and another paper goods giveaway – stay tuned!

Have a great weekend everyone!
