We just realized

So, A and I were driving to get dessert the other night, and we were talking about my extreme need to plan and control pretty much every curve ball life throws our way, when I realized that I constantly think our wedding is still 2 years away.  It hit me that our wedding is now only about a year away.  As of Spring 2013, A will only have one class left.  It was requested that we wait to get married until after he finishes his undergraduate degree, which would be at the end of fall semester 2013 (he can't take the class over the summer, it's only offered fall and spring).

BUT his dad is a teacher, he has three siblings in school, and a niece and nephew.  I have cousins with school-aged kids.  So our best shot at the family wedding is a summer wedding, whether school is over or not.  We really don't think anyone will mind too much, given that we live together, and our transition to married life will hopefully be pretty easy.  It's just that while I don't feel a long engagement is necessary, I am in awe of the fact that this time next year, we will be in a double digit day countdown to our wedding.  It's surreal to know that in a year I will be preparing for that iconic walk.  I will take someone else's last name.

It got me thinking about the passage of time, and how it can pass so quickly without anyone noticing, yet still be utterly remarkable.  In November we will have been together for 3 years.  How is that even possible?  Seems like just yesterday that I was wondering if he was asking me on dates because he was interested in me, or if he just wanted to "hang out" as friends.  How can it be that in August we will have lived together for 2 years?

I am so happy I get the honor of sharing the rest of my life with this man.  Even if he makes creepy faces like this one...

I love you, dear.  Can't wait to be your Little Misses (sooner than I think).


  1. haha. that's not a creepy face at all. trust me, i can show you creepy. it just looks like he is very very hungry. :)

  2. The time leading up to your wedding is the most panic inducing fun ever! Your wedding day seems to almost come out of a good way. =)

  3. I agree with coffehouse. That was just a joyful-carrotcake face. I can make much much more disturbing faces.

  4. Time flies! It'll be here sooner than you can imagine. I love the picture of him and the cake. Looks like something J would do haha! :)
