- Wedding: December 2011
So, I know everyone talks about how planning a wedding is so hard and will drive you completely crazy. And, as someone who is NOT detail oriented, I was definitely worried about getting the wedding crazzies and turning into a bridezilla. But, I have to say, I have found the opposite to be true. Ever since I ordered my dress, it just feels like everything is coming together. My fiance, my mother, and I are chipping away at each little detail one by one.
Also, I have a kind of emotionally taxing job. I work at a VA hospital with returning vets from Iraq and Afghanistan. It can be sad, overwhelming work, but I’m completely commited to it and love it. Planning my wedding has provided me this totally wonderful distraction and counterpoint. It’s all about celebration and colors, music, food, wine, a beautiful setting, my family. It’s such an amazing thing to be involved with. I never really thought I was going to get married, but am very glad that a) I’m getting married to my best friend, and b) I get to plan my dream wedding.
