Forward, Ho!

Something incredibly exciting happened recently: I got engaged!

Obligatory photo!

I’ll try not to gush too much, but it’s much too exciting not to share it with you all. Marriage was never the end-goal in my life. But the romantic part of me, which usually likes to hide away, really, really loves the idea of getting married to the person I love most.

Apparently my fiancé had been planning the proposal for months. I was oblivious to it all, which made the surprise all the more special. It was private, and intimate, and absolutely perfect. Of course, we’ve had to get the ring resized twice, since apparently my fingers are smaller than estimated.

Now that we’ve had time to enjoy our time as newly-engaged, it’s time to start planning the wedding! This means a lot of work between now and December. This certainly will not become a wedding blog, but there may be various updates on the process. We will be doing a lot of it by ourselves, so there may be some frustrated rants.

I’ve started drafting wedding invite cards!

On that note, any advice and recommendations are very welcome! We will be having a very small wedding, but I don’t doubt there will be much to do. I would love to hear your experiences and any tips or tricks!

  1. God Bless your love! A small wedding… Mine was planned in 2 weeks and we had 10 people in attendance, which included the Minister, myself and the groom. It was crazy even as simple as it was but I will tell you this much, DO it the way YOU want it and allow no one to tell you otherwise. It will always mean more to you to consider what others say, but in the end, it’s YOURS and HIS day! ❤


  2. Congratulations!! Make the day about you two. Me and my hub got married on a $2,500 budget that we set for ourselves that included my dress, his suit and 60 sit down steak dinners in a private setting. It was awesome. And no matter what happens, at the end of the day you will be married. Enjoy the day. And an elderly man told my husband on our wedding day, “Son, you can be right or you can be happy – you can’t be both”. LOL – We have been together now 26 years. Good luck my friend! June
