Despite New York’s less than pleasant weather today, I am in a far better mood than I have ever been on a Thursday. In case you didn’t know, Thursday’s are the bane of my existence. Anyway — Today marks the biggest countdown moment of my life, thus far. In exactly one calendar year I am getting married!!!!
November 7,2014 I get to be the blushing bride and fully overindulge in all of the girly things I normally hate. I also get all of the attention and booze I want, which is all the stuff I normally love. The best part of all of it is obviously Nick. I can’t wait to walk with my daddy down the aisle in the same church I grew up in. I can’t wait to see his face that day, as I enter the church a daughter of my father and leave as wife to my husband. The thought literally overwhelms me – like on a regular basis. Sometimes I think about it and I cry because my heart is overflowing with more love than one person can possibly hold. I know I made the right decision, and I think about all the things we have been through together and they have only made us stronger as a team. He is the reason I even want to get married, start a family and be the best version of myself.
So I know that it isn’t an actual anniversary yet, but I already feel connected to this day and I cannot wait to become his Mrs. I look forward to this year of planning together and I also look forward to growing together and learning all of the unknown about each other. I can think of no one else that I would want to raise my children with or grow old with.
