Spud and I are now into the final eighteen months leading up to our wedding day. It feels like we've been waiting forever, because we decided we wanted to aim for marriage even before we started going out. We even worked out a date! And when we got together, three and a half years ago, the anticipation began. For the last year or so I've been counting down until our wedding, day by day.
We booked the wedding venue in the summer, but that's just about all we've done so far, although we've pretty much worked everything out in our heads. Now finally we've made the first move towards making the plans and preparations. We've started looking at photographers and caterers and it's all so exciting!
I feel like I've spent the last few years waiting - firstly, to meet Spud, and then to actually move closer to him. That's almost five years of waiting. I can't wait until we can begin our life together as a married couple, but it seems like there are still so many hurdles to conquer before our big day. Firstly, Spud needs to find a job and I'm desperate to find a new job, and secondly, we want a mortgage and a house that we can move into immediately after the wedding. I've been waiting so long that I'm raring to go!
