Hi All - 

Apologies for the lack of posts lately. Lots going on here for Calumet 412!

The fiance and I are in the final stages of our wedding planning, which is coming up in October.

With the imminent arrival of the High Holidays and all the other mishegas going on, posts will be sporadic until after October 20th.

I will definitely be back to full posting after the honeymoon, so please hang in there and spend some time revisiting the archives. There’s some good stuff there going back to 2011.

Special thanks to everyone who checked in to make sure all was good!!

Wish us luck!
