It’s now 39 days until I trade my “Miss” for a “Mrs.” Yesterday my wonderful, thoughtful, and romantic fiancé suprised me as I was getting ready for work with a dozen long-stemmed red roses and a beautiful letter that he had written. Last night, I ran to the store to get a few things and when I came home, “Looking In The Eyes Of Love” was playing and there was a bottle of wine (late harvest riesling from a vineyard in Fredericksburg) and another letter sitting next to the flowers.
Man… two lovely surprises in one day, that was just overwhelming. I asked him what the occasion was, and he said, “Just 40 days till our wedding!” I’m so glad to have someone that is just as excited about getting married as I am.
Yesterday we also took our engagement photos, which seems somewhat odd to me since we have been engaged for more than a year. But this portrait session is for us to have a large photo to display at our reception. I’m personally more excited about getting a big picture of us together that we can put up at home!
Plans are perking along… this week I’ve talked a lot with Janette and Rachael about the bachelorette party, which looks like it will be held in Galveston the weekend before. And Janette is also planning a shower in Sherman with my mom and some ladies from her church. I’m so thankful that I have good friends who are willing to do all this for me!
I’ve also bought all of the components for my wedding-day attire… so now I need to hie myself to David’s Bridal to get my dress fitted. Things are really falling into place. I keep feeling like I need to look over my shoulder to see what I’m forgetting!!
39 days until the wedding… it seems so close. But I know that I have a great support system in place to get everything done, and I’m incredibly lucky to have an awesome fiancé that makes it all more than worthwhile!
