- Wedding: January 2010
Ladies, my waiting is coming to an end! SOON! How do I know? Well… there is this little chapel that we LOVE and have been wanting to get. Since my parents are in the states for a little while we took the opportunity to check on availability and discovered that the one open weekend in December is too early for my parents to be able to get here. Mr.Rain’s dad has a connection to the church, though, and was able to pull some strings for us. Even though they are closed, they are opening up the chapel for us to get married the first weekend in January (01.02.10). We just got the news yesterday!
So now we have a date and a venue. My excitment lasted all of about 3 hours. Then it occured to me that if we are getting married right after the New Year we need to send out Save the Dates. Like, yesterday. Ack! I promised Mr.Rain nobody but our parents would know about us getting married until we are officially engaged! So for the last 12 hours I have been worrying about this. Kind of a lot.
Finally this morning Mr.Rain IMed me. He said if I really need some peace of mind, he will narrow it down to a window of about 2-3 weeks and to let him know at 9am if I wanted him to tell me. So at 9am when he IMed again I said, "yes."
And my wonderful, perfect, incredibly sweet man said that he is going to propose before my parents leave the states. Now I can rest easy! They leave on August 11th and his parents are flying in to meet them on the 10th. The 7th and 8th I will be out of town. So it is pretty safe to assume that I will be engaged within the next TWO WEEKS! The actual day and time is a surprise, but just knowing this much is a huge relief to me. We can get the StDs out by the second week in August and everything will be okay.
And I LOVE, love, LOVE my man.
