bphi163: Haha I agree!! Before the holidays it seemed so far away and then almost in a days time we started getting serious and down to business!
professorplum: Love this! So very true! I try to remind myself of this when I start to get overwhelmed.
kdrforever: I feel like a lot lately. BUT this week I’ve been feeling on top of everything…hopefully that feeling will stay?? lol
ShoeGal89: There have been SOO many times where I’ve looked at my fiance and seriously said I want to elope. It would be so much easier for us to just go away and have a party when we get home.
