- Wedding: May 2013
So I am getting really excited. Today I am 184 days closer to marrying a wonderful man. I have been telling myself to just enjoy the days of being engaged (which I am), but I really can not wait until May 4th!! I have my dress, the bridesmaids dresses are picked, we have our officiant, our lovely website is up and running, we mailed the save the dates, hair and makeup is paid in full, the wedding cake is secured along with the professional photographer is on board (she is a family friend of 17 plus years and my previous boss when I was a teenager) we found a great couple to do the photobooth and we have a highly recommended DJ who will be rocking it out at The Madison Event Center here in Covington, KY.
We have a great deal of things picked out that I feel like I have nothing but unproductive time until the big day. Granted I know that is not true as I know next year starting in February things are going to be hectic. Again, I am trying to enjoy this time and focus on other areas of my life, for example I am writting my doctoral dissertation so that takes up a ton of time. Too bad I am daydreaming every day of our wedding.
I guess, I just wanted to write a post of how excited I am. We have been together since April 2, 2010, we got engaged on April 6, 2012 and even though there has been plenty of times that I wished we just went to the justice of the peace and then threw a big party afterwards, I am so blessed that he and I are truly planning a wonderful celebration. I will continue to enjoy this time and I know that I must work on my dissertation (considering that my estimated graduation date is April 27, 2013…a week before the wedding).
But honestly, who could work on a dissertation when you can look at flower arrangements, wedding bands, shoes, unique hairstyles, etc.
