This is happening. It is our wedding week! This will be my last post. I cannot believe it is actually here. All the planning, all the tears, all the drama have led to this day. Matt and I are so excited, we’ve been walking around like wide eyed kids in a candy store, and every once in a while Matt will say to me “this time next week, I’ll have a ring on it!”
The moment when everything became real was not getting in RSVPS, getting wedding gifts in the mail, or even obtaining our marriage license. The moment I knew it was really happening was when our wedding date showed up in the 10 day forecast. That was when I realized time was no longer dragging along, but was pummeling us head first into December 8th.
Ever since that moment, I’ve been jittery and antsy–my emotions have been jumping and down, going between me wanting to get everything done, but also trying to soak in every minute of these final days as a legally single woman. I also spend quite a bit of time checking the forecast. At first, it looked like rain, which made me a little nervous. I don’t mind the rain, but in Southwest Virginia, those temperatures could drop before you can blink, and then instead of a gentle rain shower we’ve got a terrifying snow/ice storm on the way. While I was obviously catastrophizing, I like to prepare myself for the worst, just in cases. However, as of today the forecast is sunny with temps in the upper 60s. I’ll take it!
