'The Countdown begins,' and 'Yes, we have a winner!'

One month from today I will be "Mrs. D.E.B"!!!!!!!!!!!!! Woo-hoo! 
I find it incredibly hard to believe, what an amazing journey it has been.

Wedding plans are going well. 
The cake saga has be SOLVED!!! And the winner is....DUNCAN HINES!!
(Sorry, Betty.)

Cake mixes arrived, Sally the Cake Baker did her magic and sent samples home with the D.E.B. yesterday evening. I took one bite of the Duncan Hines version, looked at the D.E.B. and said: "Now, we are getting married!" It was "wedding cake" at long last. Alleluia! I think Sally the Cake Baker was about to go spare.

I have an entirely new nightmare on my hands with the blasted "wedding quilt" (what was I thinking?). 

But, for now, after a busy afternoon at the Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival, I'm pulling an "all-nighter" prepping for a pre-performance lecture on "The Winter's Tale" I have to give tomorrow morning to a group of 15-16 year olds from Italy.
If it's not one thing, it's another.
Good night!

How exciting, only a month?! Wow. I gave in and had British style wedding cake (fruit cake, bleh) but we also had other little cakes that were more like American 'sponge'. Yum, I love Duncan Hines. I've bookmarked the sites you listed a while ago that sell American goodies so I shall be stocking up on a few things!

Have a fun month in the countdown!
