wedding preparations

Today our wedding is 1 month and 2 days away. We are getting more and more ready, but there are still preparations to be done - like getting Sølve an outfit. Since our garden wedding is in my mother-in-law's childhood home (photos here), we have to do things like prepare the garden (it is big!), paint the flag pole (it hasn't been done in 30 years, so the wedding is a good excuse to do it), and clean the house (we might have to go inside during the party). Some of the projects have been going on for a while, and some of them we started this weekend. I spent some hours high up in a ladder painting the flag pole in the sizzling heat. At least I got a slight tan.

One preparation we did this weekend, that I especially enjoyed, was the hike to Stalheim. It was our first time there, and it was truly amazing! Most of our wedding guests are coming the day before the wedding, since none of them live at Voss. We want to have a fun, informal meet up before the big day, so we plan to take them on this hike to Stalheim, and have a traditional meal at the Sivle gard (Sivle farm) on the way back.

See the photos from our Stalheim hike here.
