2 months

So, I'm getting married in May.  And honestly, it's not that stressful.  Everyone always asks me if I'm stressed, and I always say no.  They probably think I'm lying but really, it's not that bad.  Actually, it's really fun.  Oh, and one of the best parts about getting married is registering.  Does that sound superficial?  I have never in my life been able to walk into a store and scan every item I want.  I don’t even have to look at the price tag! haha! It's awesome! And even though I might not get it, it's still fun to act like I am.  We actually received our first wedding gift via UPS and I was so excited! This is so much fun. 

All I have left is ordering the cupcakes and the photographer.  I know they are very important but I don’t feel like it’s going to be too hard to handle.  I guess when your wedding's on a Monday everyone is always available.  So, if you want a stress-free wedding, pick it on a weekday.

Dear Spring

Dear Spring,

I miss you.
I miss the smell of your flowers.
I miss your warm breeze.
I miss all your shades of green.
I thought you had decided to come early, but apparently it was just for a short visit.  During your tease, I was able to wear free, flowing dresses and sandals...
Now I have to go back to those awful, smothering clothes of winter. My poor toes are once again imprisoned.

Please come back soon.

Chapter One

In a few months I am going to start my life.  Wow.  That sounds a little scary but very intriguing at the same time.  By the end of the semester, I will be a married woman!! YEA!! I now have this little obsession with everything that has to do with weddings and home decor.  One of the fun parts about getting married is registering. I cannot believe that I can just walk into a store with this amazing magical scanner and select all the things I want, without looking at the price tag.  It is AWESOME.

Brad and I went to the bridal fair they have in little rock.  It's so overwhelming looking at all the venues set up.  I really wish I never signed up to win so many things because of course I didnt win anything and now I have a million emails about tuxedos, catering, and wedding venues. 

So far, that's the only trouble I have had. All in all, the whole engagement has been a really nice experience and it's not as stressful as people say it is.  Whenever I do get stressed, I just try to remember that this is about Brad and I committing our life-long love to one another.  It's not about the right shade of pink or how the food tastes.
