Planning and Preparing for a Wedding!
I thought that with my simplistic attitude planning a wedding for October 11th would be simple. Well, I was slightly mistaken. There are so many little details with timelines that you don’t really think about until someone says “so what will you wear to the luncheon?” and I think to myself “I guess that is another trip to the department store after a full day of work.” I am amazed at how long things take me to do. I haven’t finished sending the invitations or gotten a dress to wear to the luncheon and a few other important things like writing sub plans for when I am gone from work. CRAZY I tell you!
Ok, so this is a little bit of a downer entry and I realize that I am not even close to being the only person to feel this way, but it was nice to get it out of the way so I could write about the great things that have been happening through all the stress (and now Mono for those of you who haven’t heard).
Jeff! That is what has happened through it all. He has been my hero (gag for those who don’t like sap and you might just want to stop here just in case you can’t stand anymore). He has stuffed envelopes, dealt with an exhausted and now sick fiancé, gone to the post office and given me hugs and held me when I cry. I am feeling so blessed for the stress of wedding planning (even crazier, I know) because it has given me the chance to be grateful for a man who will take up responsibilities that I would normally feel like they were mine, but now I can share them and not feel so overwhelmed. Jeff has shown me true service and love in the past few months and I know that will carry on into out marriage. I am so EXCITED for October 11th to come (with or without a new dress) .
