I know what you mean. I love this part planning it with him but I just want to be his wife already and have the wedding behind us and life back to normal. 

Novbride – did you get your engagement pics back? i wanna see! we opted not to have them since it’s a second marriage for both but now i’m second guessing that and might do them still. thoughts?
