But even though this year and time in generally is flying by, I still feel like things are going so slowly. My classes seem longer than ever, I still yearn for Friday every week even though it seems further and further away.
I'm not sure what crazy time warp is going on that makes things feel slow even though they're fast, but I don't like it.
I want the next year and a half-ish to speed up, mainly because I want to get married and start my life with Cam. But at the same time, I want to cherish every moment of my engagement (minus the spending money on the wedding part. That I could do without) because I know this is the "easy" time. Not to mention I know my childhood is hanging by threads and that scares me.
I read this book recently called A Practical Wedding and I loved it. Anyone who is engaged or just looking to get past all the nonesense that is weddings in this day in age. Seriously, it is about 98% theatrics, 2% actual meaning. This book helped me to realize a few things:
1. I don't give a $%^! about the aisle runner
-Not the aisle runner exactly, but really...some of the little things are just details. Pick one and move on.
2. What's important is important
-That didn't make sense. At the beginning of the book, the author has you identify a few things that are really, genuinely important to you. Those things should be your focus. Let the rest fall into place and let it be done.
3. It's your day
-Well, and your fiance's. But let your styles, personalities and feelings shine
I'm just hoping I can remember these things and I start my wedding dress shopping adventure this weekend (not ready this. Post to come) and make a few changes. Pray for me!
