- Wedding: January 2012
Hi! So, I decided I’d post and introduce myself. I don’t know how discussion boards work, and I don’t know if I’ll be consistent, but at least I could meet to some people who can talk me down when I get overwhelmed! So here goes.
The fiancee and I just got engaged a week ago, and are planning a wedding for January 14, 2012. Super short engagement, but we’ve been together for almost 7 years now and don’t want to wait any more! We met in the beginning of high school, were friends, but didn’t start dating until my senior year. We stayed together all through college. We started talking about getting married years ago, but that was at the beginning of college, and we wanted to wait til we were out. The fiance’s a year younger than me, and took five years in college, but 5 years, a college degree (and a Master’s for me), and a week after his graduation, he popped the question! Not so much of a popping, since I wasn’t too surprised, but I was thrilled all the same. No engagement ring yet. He got a job, but won’t start until next week, so we’re gonna wait until he’s a few paychecks in. We gave each other promise rings three years ago, so for his proposal, he gave me his promise ring back, and it’s going to be his wedding band. 🙂
So now, one week engaged, and I’m already trying to pull this together. Of course, what else can i do with four and a half months left? As excited as I am for the wedding, my mantra is going to be, “Everything is good enough.” I have my dress (as of today) and a church, and despite a very small budget, it will be fine. After all, I’m getting to marry him!
In the meantime, I look forward to getting to know all of you!
