Almost daily I have people asking me "So... when are you guys getting married?" and I respond with "October 19th next year... wait I mean this year." It seems so surreal to me that it is already 2013 and that it is the year that I get to marry the love of my life. I feel like I have waited sooooooo long for this moment to get here that I just can't believe that it is actually almost here.
As I sit here at my computer, drinking a glass of wine, listening to the Wicked soundtrack I really just can't believe that this is my life. I have dreamed about getting married forever and for the past few years I dreamed about my perfect wedding to MD. Though I have dreamed about this for so long, planning it has not been as easy as I thought it would be... it has been a journey, a journey that still has another 8 1/2 months left in it. Some days I wonder if I will survive it all. Although through it all I just have to keep in mind that at the end of it all I will be married to the love of my life and there is nothing else that is more important than that.
In the past few weeks I feel as though I have made some really important decisions... I have signed the photography contract, got the contract for our reception, selected my bridesmaids (you can meet them here) and I said "YES!" to the dress (you can read about me saying "Yes!" here). It seems like things are moving very quickly and I can't believe that we have already been engaged for two months... it really does seem like just yesterday that MD popped the question.
