- Wedding: April 2013
So about a year and a half ago, I posted on here looking for help with a sticky situation that I was in…that my FI got us in! You can go back and read it – I honestly hate reading it because it depresses me – but basically 2 months after we got engaged, my FI quit his job out of nowhere and was going to start a business venture. In the midst of all of this, there was a falling out between him and my dad, who had gotten along so great beforehand and at the time I wrote that post, my parents had sat me down and told me they were not paying for a wedding while my FI was unemployed. I went into a deep state of depression and to make a huge, long story short, I took off for a discipleship training school in Hawaii for three months and a mission trip to South Africa for two months to rediscover who I was and to figure out what I wanted out of my life because things had gotten SO messy! I left my FI behind (we stayed engaged while I was gone) but told him he needed to figure out what was going on with him while I was gone and we’d try to pick back up when I got back. Which we did, and although we have had a few bumps in the road to getting “us” back, we are once again on the fast track to getting married!!
Since we have been engaged for nearly two years now, we have decided that we just want to pull something sweet and intimate together rather quickly and just do it! So we decided a few weeks ago that the date will be April 20th…FOUR months! But my two sisters have both gotten married in the past 2 years and we have a lot of decorating supplies to help me speed up the process. I will keep you all updated as the progress comes along.
FIRST STEP: Invitations! More to come :o)
