So… this week I’ve had an epiphany that might help you out. 

I’ve been dating my SO for over 8 years, we’ve lived together for 1 year, and my 2 best friends got married last year & I was maid of honor in both. Needless to say, I’m soooooo ready to be engaged & get married!!

But, for some reason, probably reading these boards constantly, I’ve realized I need to enjoy where our relationship is right NOW. Just dating, hanging out, being carefree, lazy, and virtually stress free.

Once you get engaged, its all about the planning. I KNOW my wedding planning is going to be stressful just by the things SO & my parents & his parents have said before. It’s going to be a struggle to make sure things go smoothly. Not really looking forward to the drama.

After we get married, according to this possible timeline I’ve thought up, he’ll be 27 and I’ll be 26. This is about the time we’ll start trying to have children. Obviously our lives will change dramatically!! And we’ll never get these lazy, fun, relaxing all the time days again til we’re old & retired! 

My SO wants to make a big surprise for me too. Luckily, I’ve gotten him to open up some on a proposal timeline & I know it’s coming this year & that he’s been working on getting the ring since last year, so that helps me feel better knowing I’m not waiting for nothing. At least you know your SO loves you & wants to marry you. You KNOW that. Enjoy your relationship for what it is right now. It’ll never be this way again! Good luck!

“i would marry SO today in my pajamas. in 10 years, i’m not going to care about what the colors were, the flowers, the dumb bridesmaid dresses, or the music that was played. i just want to be able to call him my husband and start my life with him. is that too much to ask!?! “

I definately could have written those words myself!!!  I’m with ya!!  I really couldn’t care less about what my ring looks like, or what I wear, he wears, or any of that.  I just want my life with my husband to start RIGHT NOW!  I’d run to city hall tomorrow with a ring pop if I could!!  

Good luck waiting! Keep your chin up, when it happens it will all be worth it (or that’s what I keep getting told!!)
