- Wedding: May 2014
Hi ladies! I’ve been with SO for 1 yr, both in mid-twenties. Last week we were in Inman Park (which the Atlanta bees will be familiar with. Beautful eccelctic community in the heart of Atlanta) and started talking about the houses. I. Love. This. Place. If I had the money I’d move there NOW, but alas I do not. Now, we had mentioned “the M word” before, so future-focused talks aren’t exactly uncommon with us. This time, though, when we idly chatted about buying a house, he seems to have taken it to heart. I joked that there is a certain other sparkly milestone I’d like to achieve before buying together, and he didn’t disagree. Then, a few dyas later over dinner he busted out a savings plan and timeline for buying a home. He even said that we can stay there for a few years “after the mini-mes” arrive. Basically, if we were to follow his plan we would have enough saved to plunk down a sizeable down payement on a nice home in roughly 2.5 years.
Over that dinner we talked about a few things, like saving for a house, and how we would pay for a wedding and if eloping would be an option (I’ve always thought this might be how I go. I’m not totally sold on spending enough to buy a car to throw a party to showoff how happy you are…) The next night, as we’re snuggled up watching TV he tells me how his mom was on board for the idea of a small, simple wedding.
Hold. The. Phone. He’s talking to mom about wedding stuff?! Am I reading too much into it or does that sound like a guy who is planning on this happening?! If he’s thinking of buying a house in 2.5 years…surely the sparkly milestone is on his mind as well?
Oh bees, I’m a nutcase and can’t stop thinking about it! 🙂
