Hey everybody, happy number two post of Saturday, March 3rd! Ok I’m crazy excited and don’t exactly know what to do with myself, and therefore I don’t know what to do with this post. The gist is, 2012 is shaping up to be one of the most intense, exciting, neurotic, rewarding, busy, bringing-out-of-all-insecurities-known-and-yet-to-be-happened-upon-at-inopportune-times, fun, exhausting and joyful years of my life, for many wonderful reasons related to work and play, but the most important one being this next one:
Honey put a ring on it a whiiiiile back, and it’s time. We’re right here right now kicking off the planning of our wedding. And we’re getting married in the fall of this year. High kick, woot!
Some of you might be thinking to yourselves, “wait, THAT’S the news? I thought she was married already.” I’m not. :)
I seriously took forever and ever to come to the decision to announce this finally, and therefore start planning. I think it’s a potent combination of “holy s**t it’s happening!” mixed with my intense fear of making something that’s so private, just so incredibly, overwhelmingly, can’t-take-it-back-edly PUBLIC. Especially being such private people, the way we both are. I mean, once you get the wheels rolling on something like this, it’s not something you can just put a stop to if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and I wanted to be really, really ready to start these planning wheels a-rollin’ in such a public way. And the thing is, I wanna share the experience with you. The whole process. The good, the not so good, the downright insane. Even the emotional meltdowns, if I have any. LOL I WILL HAVE THOSE.
I’m also very open to and excited about hearing your thoughts and suggestions, if you might have any. I get inspired by you guys all the time. I’ve already been feeling really overwhelmed just via the act of getting ready to start planning, so you can imagine how *interesting* a process this will be for us. But I think, above all, it’s going to be the bestest, funnest year ever. And I can’t wait to watch it all happen. And even more, I can’t wait for the day I get to tell Honey how much I love him in front of all of our family and friends, kiss him right on the FACE, and then walk back down the aisle, my hand in his, married, and ready to start out on this road together for the rest of our lives.
You guys, I can’t wait.
I wonder if any of you are getting married this year, too? Or if anyone has any advice for me, or for Honey, or just in general? I would love to hear anything you might have to say. :)
xoxo! - Alison, soon to be Mrs. Honey. ;)
