The closer I get to you…

So I realized today…

…that I’m just about approaching the 6-months-until-I-get-married mark.


I have a LOT of work to do.  I have to get logistics of entertainment taken care of, work on the decor, cake design, flowers, get my dress fitted…OH MY GOD.

Can I do it in 6 months?  Am I on track? Falling behind?

I talked to my mother on the phone earlier tonight, and I said, “Can you believe, that in 6 months, your BABY GIRL is going to be a MRS.????  Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday, I was 12 years old, crying on the kitchen floor, BEGGING to not have to go to school again?”

(Shut it – I moved to a new town in 7th grade, and it was very traumatic for me)

(But then I was crying in my dorm room for the first month STRAIGHT of college – this might have been a trend in my life)

Point being, I am now 35 years old, and I am going to be a BRIDE.  I’m getting married.  Trippy shit, man.  After I broke off my first engagement about 10 years ago, and for years afterward, I thought this day would NEVER come.

I’m feeling all mushy-gushy right now.  And panicky.  I wake up a lot during the night, and my brain just runs wild.  Lists and agendas and I’m going NUTS.

Holy CRAP, I’m getting married.

    You’ll be fine. Just remember to breathe, and make a lot of lists. Remember, half the fun of getting married is actually having *fun* with it. 🙂

    If you want, I can totally help you out.
