Adentures in Wilkes-Barre and Mt. Hope (and wedding updates!)

Wilkes-Barre, though it has its crime rates and drug problems, is still a beautiful place. Sometimes I forget to step back and appreciate it.

I went for a few walks and adventures in my hometown of Wilkes Barre, including a big Ingress rampage with my fellow Enlightened.

I cut my hair. I think I was inspired by Lydia Deetz.

Mark and I traveled to the Mt. Hope Winery on the grounds of the PA Renaissance Faire to pick up a bunch of bottles of delicious Honey Mead for our reception. Mark proposed at the Faire, so it only seemed appropriate to have our favorite drink from their winery at the wedding.
After we had the Mead in tow, we went to Littmans Jewelers to get our wedding bands. I found mine (blue diamonds and white gold) but Mark ended up buying his ring (black tungsten) online. I got a deal as my ring was on clearance at 70% off!

I’ve been working hard on wedding design. This is a snap of some of our table signs, including our drink menu, a poem for the well wishes table (styled as a place to brew potions/perform alchemy), and D20 Ice Breakers game for our guests. Roll a D20 and do what it says… simple!

We tasted cake… nom. We went to Bakery Delite in Plains and took home 8 delicious samples. The vanilla and strawberry were our favorites!
