I decided to wave my white flag. I surrender to my wedding. I swore I would never be one of those brides that became obsessed, but here I am, always talking about my wedding. I guess it’s expected with such a short turn around before the big day, but I’ve been fighting it.
Anytime I have a free minute, I battle my tendency to work on this wedding. I try to fill that time with anything else, but that doesn’t prevent my mind from wandering to lists and tasks and idea planning. I tried it all to enjoy a movie, relish in a wonderful dinner, celebrate my new job, write for my blog, volunteer at nonprofits. BUT nothing worked; I was barely present.
But now, I’ve realized that it’s only a few more weeks. Then I’ll have all the time in the world to re-focus on moving, new work, writing, dance, nonprofit work, relationships, going to shows, exploring Louisville…..
AND I’ll get to do all of that with the best man by my side. So for now, I’m taking deep breaths. I’m planning like a crazy person and am declaring that I WILL ENJOY EVERY STEP ALONG THE WAY. This is once-in-a-lifetime, and I want to cherish all the pre-wedding shenanigans, all the people who are helping and the man who I get to call my husband very soon.
