14 Oct


I’d say this past weekend was a successful one. Brian and I have implemented a “no plans” rule for the month of October in preparation for our wedding. We thought it would help us stay present, calm and most importantly rested. I also want to spend as much time with him as possible before the big day. I just want to savour every moment.

The weekends are for us to do whatever we please and that’s exactly what we did.

Brian took Friday afternoon off from work so we could get our marriage license and oh what a fun little activity it was. We were both totally giggly as we filled out the paperwork. It all felt very very very real and very very very romantic. I may have even blushed when I filled out the “new name” line when I wrote Kate Glodney. There it was in print and it made us both smile. I think Brian may have even blushed as well. Once we were done filling out the paperwork we waited in line holding hands while sneaking in a few kisses. There we were in a stuffy courthouse waiting room with silly Halloween decorations hanging all around and us and there was nowhere else I would have rather been. Everything felt right in the world. Twenty minutes and ninety bucks later we had our official marriage license in hand. We decided to make a date out of it and grabbed a late lunch, then a few drinks at a happy hour and then went to an early evening showing of “Don Jon”. Such a perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Saturday was judgement day…as in it was my second wedding dress fitting since Olga told me a should lose a few pounds to make my dress fit better. Good news…juice cleanses really do work! The dress fit perfectly. She even had to take it in. Success. I decided to celebrate by making Brian take me out for greasy Mexican food and margaritas. Totally backwards I know but it felt oh so good.

Sunday we stayed with theme and let the day take us where it may. We spent the morning in our pj’s working on wedding seating, then we took Frank to the dog park so he could terrorize as many dogs possible, then we had a leisurely lunch in our neighborhood and spent the rest of the afternoon hanging around the house finishing up the evening with takeout and an episode of “Homeland”.

Even Frank was relaxed from the weekend…winning.

    You have perfect weekends, it seems. Glad you got the license thing done.

    I remember when we celebrated our 30th with a renewal at the Hotel Dupont in Delaware! We really went all out as we both had family from many places in the United States. I remember the first night that everyone got to the Hotel, they begin to feel the magnitude of the event. They thought it would only be a celebration and not a complete Marraige again. We were burnt out the first night and we went back to the peace and quiet of our home. Enjoying quiet moments together. I am glad to see you guys enjoying the weekends together. I am smiling with you both! Our wedding was a smash hit, so I know yours will also be. We made it back to the hotel that night, as we only lived about 24 minutes away. Enjoy yourself Kate! Hugs and blessings to you both!

    We had to drive from Park City to a little town where the registrar is in order to get our license- it was an event. We had to do it twice because I signed my old name on the form the first time. I love that you are savoring the time together- being engaged is its own little period of time unlike any other in a couple’s relationship. I was doing what you are doing precisely a year ago… it’s fun to have the memories be happy! xxx
