Do you see this? It's on the bottom of my blog today!
That's right, only ONE MONTH TO GO until our wedding! Holy crap (I say that a lot nowadays)!
I am actually not stressed out right now - even with all the uncertainty in our lives with the health of my grandma and our pitbull and a lot of personal issues going on with my mom and sister and with our move and house renovations and with our finances. I feel like maybe I can finally get excited. I feel surprisingly calm - even though I have a to-do list that still feels a mile long only there's no longer a year or six months to handle it all :)
We are almost finished with the house renovations. We move in all of our stuff a week from this Saturday! But my daughter and I won't officially move in until after the wedding. The house is definitely in order enough to where we can comfortably move in. It is being cleaned and Mr Fix It is finishing up with the major renovations. I keep telling him not to stress about painting the base boards and door frames and installing new carpet in the living room and hallway and our master bedroom. Those things can wait until we get back from the honeymoon. But he's pretty insistent about wanting to get it all done before the wedding. We'll see how that goes.
For now, it feels real. Scary. Exciting. Overwhelming. I have accomplished so much. I have lots of 'paperwork' type things to handle with regards to the wedding (things like getting our marriage license, Australian visas, insurance coverage from our caterer, finalizing to-do lists with the coordinator) but all the planning is almost all done (need to finalize our song selections and grand entrance but we're very close). The last of the DIY projects and favors are being assembled in the week or two to come. My video will be done in about a week. We'll be running out to pick up some gift certificates as gifts to our guys in the wedding in the next couple weeks. It is almost time. So surreal.
31 days to go...how long do you have to go and how do you feel at this point in your engagement?
