- Wedding: May 2014
A few good signs this weekend that just confirm what I already know – SO and I WILL be married, he and I just know and it’s more a matter of waiting for him to ask then waiting to find out if he wants to marry me or is ready for marriage, etc. Background: both 30 years old, dating 1 year 2 months. So it hasn’t been all THAT long yet, and although I’m waiting, I’m not, in a sense, because I know it’ll happen and am not concerned at all that it won’t, just don’t know when (and I know it’s not going to be a very long time, we’ve had that discussion already).
This weekend we were on our way to a St. Patty’s Day party and a limo went by that was like a stretched out pickup truck (but nice….haha) and SO saw it and told me – “Look! That’s what I want us to get for our wedding.” and I had butterflies, not because he mentioned “wedding” but because the way he said it, it was like it’s a foregone conclusion, almost like it was a real day that was coming up soon, not just a “someday, when we’re married….” kind of way, if that makes sense? Like he was saying it as not just a wish for his sometime-in-the-future, mystical concept of a wedding (“when I get married, I want to do this….”) but a this-is-going-to-happen-soon-enough-that-I-want-you-to-remember-that’s-what-we-should-get way.
Oh, and as I was helping him organize his tornado of a bedroom (yes, I’m that great of a GF haha), he found his old high school football jersey, and gave it to me to keep – I put it on and it says his last name on the back – he loved seeing his name on my back, and I’m thinking – hopefully soon it will be my last name too! (But didn’t say that out loud) My dad told me to take really good care of it, because that’s a guy’s prized possession, his old football jersey, especially when he was a big football star in high school (my dad used to play, so he knows haha). I told him it felt like I was being “pinned” like in the 50’s :o) (I did used to be a football cheerleader in high school.)
Sorry for the rambling, it’s hard to explain but hope someone else knows what I’m talking about!! :o)
