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!
So friends, this is it. Next time we meet, I will be an old, married woman. I can't wait! Thank you all for following along, putting up with my hysterics, and all of your encouraging comments. I hope to stay just as interesting once I am married, so you'll continue to read and be entertained.
This is it. Don't get scared now.
