My “blog every damn day” motto has been going exceptionally well, don’t you think? I swear, I just can’t catch my breath over here.  It’s not only that life has been incredibly busy (I know…who’s isn’t?) but I  feel like my head has been in the clouds with the wedding…in the best possible way. I’ve been all mushy and romantic. I’ve really been enjoying this time in my life and our relationship. I was telling my therapist the other day that I feel like I’ve fallen in love with Brian all over again recently. Maybe it’s the fact I’m about to marry the guy and all but I swear…he’s gotten even funnier, sweeter and more handsome. I’m just smitten with the guy.

I also can’t stop daydreaming about the wedding day. The moment I replay most in my head is walking down the aisle…with my papa…surrounded by all my loved ones….towards the man I love….the man that I’ve chosen to become my husband. I actually get al little choked up every time I think of it. I’m not sure I will make it down the aisle without crying. I’ve been so focused on silly wedding details for the last eight months…like what cake should we get…what shoes should I wear…what party favors…that I didn’t give much thought to the bigger picture.  Crazy, huh? But now that  most of the details have been figured out, I’m overcome with the magnitude of the day.  The way in which this moment will change the course of my life. It’s exciting. It’s meaningful. It’s big. It’s a tad overwhelming. But, mostly it just makes me smile. Marrying Brian is probably the best decision I’ve ever made. I know, I know, I’m so annoyingly mushy!

To balance out all my mushiness here’s a few recent wedding moments that were not so mushy….

– the three-hour meeting we had with our wedding planner. By hour two Brian looked like he was having an out-of-body experience. It was painful to watch.

– when our incredibly PROPER and LOVELY wedding planner asked us if we would like to hand out glow sticks to our guests during the dancing portion of the evening and Brian deadpanned…not unless we are handing out drugs as well. She looked a bit horrified. I’m still not sure if she knows he was kidding.

– When Brian dryly said, “I’m not hugely excited about the unity candle thing” quickly deflating my unity candle plans.

    “Not unless there are drugs” … really, does booze count!? You guys aren’t going for the rage-r / glow-stick vibe?!

    (p.s. I love the real-ness of “blog every damn day”. my new motto is blog only when my heart needs to share and get words out!)

    I love that you’re enjoying this time- it’s such a unique phase in a relationship! I’m finding myself getting all mushy, too, as our first anniversary approaches. I’m so happy for you, Kate! xx

    Stick with the Unity Candle thing- compromise works bothways.

    I’m with Brian on the Unity Candle thing. It’s a nice gesture, but a bit corny. Same with the sand in the bottle thing.

    And I never really associated glow sticks with drugs, but now that I have that in my head, I can’t unsee it. Now I know to strike glowsticks from the wedding planning list when I get married! (we did sparklers at my cousin’s wedding in France while Katy Perry’s Fireworks played, that was fun!),
