Only 10 days til I’m a Mrs!! Holy crap, where did the last year go? So much for my “getting super buff and hitting the gym every day” plan– I’m just lucky to be treading water under the pile of work I need to get done at the office before we head to Hawaii for 2 weeks.
With only 10 days to go, I’m starting to feel really nostalgic for my childhood, as well as those days of meaningless dating and flirting in college and law school. I can’t wait to start this next chapter of my life, but I have to admit I’m a little sad that I’ll never be 21 again. And as much as a I love my fiance… I will never kiss another man. whoa, that’s some heavy sh*t.
Anyone else feeling little twinges of lost youth as they are getting closer to their wedding date?

i know what you mean, but it only takes about 3 seconds for me to realize i’d rather have this than what i did when i was 21 any day.

I think it’s totally normal to be feeling this way. Marriage is a huge change in one’s life, and it’s only natural to think about the past and different phases, like dating, flirting, etc. Whenever I feel that way I just remind myself that I did my 20’s proud, and that it’s time to let go and move onto a new phase in my life. Marriage for me means I get to look forward to other things, other experiences, and possibly starting a family, or being incredibly awesome DINKS with a lot of dogs! Also, you’re not ever going to be 21 again, whether or not you marry your significant other. You may go to the same bars, do the same things, but let’s face it, you’ve changed. Embrace it!

@lola2011- good point- I will never be 21 again (nor will my body!), so I’m going to focus on looking to the future! And you are so right– when I go to the same bars, I end up thinking, “geez it’s loud in here!”
Ever catch yourself seeing a girl who’s probably around 19 or 20 and thinking, “she should leave something to the imagination!” ha, i’ve turned into my mother!

@winterwedding10: haha seriously. Bars are loud, and I just end up feeling really old when I compare myself to the 18 year old with a fake id. I used to be her, and now I’m on this side!
