I've hit a record level of excitement, beyond anything that I thought was possible. Believe me when I tell you, when I'm looking forward to something I get so excited that I want to scream, jump, run, cry... turn into a bit of a hysterical mess. In an attempt to keep my fiancé wanting to marry me in 6 days, I've decided to blog instead. I thought that all of YOU might want to share in my excitement during what is going to be the best time of my life. OF MY WHOLE LIFE.
(Yeah, yeah... go on and tell me about how amazing it will be when I have kids... but that's in the distant future and this is now, and I'm really looking forward to it far more than labour.)
After 1 year and 4 months of being engaged, nearly 3 years of dating and 6 years of friendship, Ryan and I are getting married next week. Yeah, that's soon. Really soon.
It really feels like just yesterday we were on that beach and he was down on one knee. Okay, maybe not quite yesterday, perhaps more like last week. Regardless, time flies. On one hand it seems as though I've been counting down forever, on the other I'm wondering where the heck the time has gone and struggling to finish last minute details.
Our wedding is going to be amazing. Rain or shine, preferably shine.
We've put a lot of hard work into little details that are going to make the whole day so completely "us". I can't wait to see it all come together. I can't wait to wear a pretty dress, and I especially can't wait to see his giant smile at the other end of that aisle. I can't wait to share in such an important day with the people that matter the most to me.
I'm not just excited for the wedding, but for the entire vacation. The Mayan Riviera is basically paradise. I've been a lot of places in the world and I love to see new countries, so the fact that this will be my 4th time in Mexico must say something. I can't wait to lie on the beach with a pina colada in my hand. I'm excited for my friends. A lot of them have never been on a beach vacation, let alone to beautiful Mexico. I can't wait for them to experience it and start their very own winter vacation addictions.
We leave in less than 48 hours, and I still have a million things to do.
I just felt the need to procrastinate, and share in my happiness. So many of you have followed my blog since the beginning of our relationship! I can't wait to tell you all about the wedding!
