Such a perfect day...

 Nathan, Russell (best man), Dylan (Groom) and Grant
 My Father walking me down the aisle 
 Cohen (page boy), Christina, Me and Lauren

Dylan's sister Lauren (bridesmaid) and Me

It was perfect! The weather, the location, our wonderful friends and family - it was everything I imagined and more. It was the best day; I laughed and cried and didn't want it to end. These are a few shots that friends took, I will share the professional photographs when I get them. We also had a photo booth, so I will upload some of those soon too! Christina has also shared some photographs of the day over here, and also look here. Off on our honeymoon tomorrow!

One day...

One sleep until the wedding and everything is done (I hope)! Chapter emailed to supervisor (not quite finished), animals at the kennels and bags packed for the weekend in Toowoomba and the honeymoon. Off to the rehearsal this afternoon, followed by the rehearsal dinner tonight with all the bridal party and family. Weddings are such a great excuse to see everyone you love. I am so excited!

We fly out a day after the wedding, but I will post wedding pictures as soon as possible. In the mean time, check my twin sister's blog for some sneak peeks over the next few days.

One week...


A bunch of daggy photographs of Dylan and I over the last few years.
We get married on Sunday!

I have been doing all the last minute wedding things - making sure everyone knows when the rehearsal is, organising the music for the reception, double checking all bookings (vintage car, chair covers, hotels etc etc.), wearing in the wedding shoes, digging out the passports, beginning to pack for the honeymoon, getting the animals their shots before they go into the kennels, and countless other details and ends that need to be tidied up and sorted out before the wedding and prior to our leaving the country. It is exciting and hectic. I am loving lists, I am loving family members who help with last minute requests (like I need some pretty coat hangers for the dresses) and loving Dylan's patience with everything!

Meanwhile, I am working on my chapter for the PhD (which my supervisor thoughtfully said I can hand in the day before the wedding!) and reading. I finished Bohemians of the Latin Quarter by Henry Murger, and I loved it, but it made me glad for hot running water and desirous of red wine. I've also been reading a monograph on Ezra Pound by G.S Fraser (written while Pound was still alive) and Warming the Core of Things, a book of poetry by Nora Krouk. I just finished The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (awesome/ heavy) and started The Damned by J.K Huysmans (some nice light reading to take on the honeymoon). 

Will post wedding photos as soon as possible and then hopefully this will get back to being more of a book/ poetry/ PhD blog again!

12 days...

 The Journalist, the Film PhD, Me and the Poet/PhD

Me and my twin sister 

Twelve days until my wedding! Which might explain why I have been off air for a while. I just want to thank my gorgeous friends for glamming up for my Hen's night on the weekend. I had such a great night!

Poet stamps...


Thanks to City Lights for posting about these forthcoming Twentieth-century poet stamps in America. They look great and have been thinking about who I would put on a stamp - given a chance to.
