- Wedding: August 2011
I am new here. I don’t really know where to start. I just wanted to say hi and hopefully find an outlet here for all of this wedding energy!! I truly feel like I am “nesting” or something. Lately, and for the past few months, I have found myself constantly thinking and daydreaming about our wedding! I am really feeling connected with the changes that are going on within me and my relationship as well. Kuz (as we will call him) is my best friend. As our day grows closer, my love is growing uncontrollably for him! I am so excited to marry him and I am truly happy to be with him.
This happiness is all part of my process. I feel like our (2 year) engagement was a year of challenges and now a year of absolute bliss! Does anyone else feel like you have gone through “a process” in your engagement?
I read this book recently called Emotionally Engaged which really spelled out with process. The thesis of this book pretty much stated that most brides chalk up wedding stress to the details of the wedding but really, there is so much going on within us at this time. We must leave our lives as single women and become one with another person. I am still astonished today as I read what I am writting and realize the woman who I have grown into throughout this engagement. I am so filled with love and happiness and I am so grateful that Kuz and I were able to get through the trying times which eventually brought us here.
I am in a place now where I cannot wait for our wedding day! Knowing the place that I was in (2 years ago) I would happy to hear from women who may be in that beginning stage as well as from those of you who feel an honest difference between where you were at the beginning of your engagement to now. Do most women go through this process?
I am fascinated with relationships and their dynamics!! I would also like to get to chat with the bees =)
