MEP to MEC: Two Months to Go


Two Months. 61 days. That is all we have left until we are finally Mr. and Mrs! Admittedly, it was hard to feel excited all of the time, especially when the big day seemed so far away. However, having our wedding invitations spread out all over the dining room table and piles of boxes in the front room with “Wedding” stuff on the right and “House” stuff on the left is starting to make this whole process even more real. Not to mention Jody picked up our wedding bands this past weekend as well! Y’all, we are getting married!!

While it is easy to become distracted by the billions of things that still haven’t been checked off of the to-do list, I am trying my best to savour every moment we have left of our engagement. Decisions are being made every day, which has made my brain run on wedding mode constantly. It has been so much fun to plan one of the biggest days of my life, but my favorite memories along the way have been when Jody gets excited when we hear a song that we are planning to play at the reception, or when I picture my groom at the end of the aisle — imagining these sweet moments take my breath away every time! But in two months, we won’t be imagining these moment any longer. 🙂
