And so the countdown begins....

Exactly 4 months and 2 days until what I believe will be the happiest day of my short life thus far. The day I become a Mrs. Until Matt and I tie the knot and take that big leap together into the great unknown of marriage. To spend my life with Matt by my side will be the best thing I could ever ask for. Someone to stand by me when I am ugly and crabby and crazy and be there to laugh with me through everything life throws at us. I can't imagine my life without him and to be honest I wouldn't want to go back to life without him. He was the missing piece, he helped me to realize who I am and be thankful for it, not ashamed of it. The countdown has been going on since we got engaged a little over a year ago but now we are in crunch time, making sure all those details work together to make June 23 a magical day, not to be forgotten. From putting together invitations with my best friends to picking a florist to choosing tuxes to ordering the shoes to finding my something old, I am consumed with wedding. There are days I would rather be sleeping or relaxing but all of this planning will be worth it because in the end Matt and I will be husband and wife and that is what matters. What is at the heart of this thing we call a wedding. Don't get me wrong I can't wait for this party but the planning part is a lot more work than I had imagined especially working 50-60 hours a week and looking for an apartment and finding time to have a life. We have a lot on our plate but that is all part of this fun stuff I call being an adult. My day dreams now consist of having a place all our own to relax in and keep the way I would like it kept. A space to do bills that isn't a nightstand, a file cabinet to keep important papers not a plastic box. A bathroom to organize the way I like it and only have my stuff. And the list goes on but God has given me a place to live, food in my belly, a man who loves me, friends and family who are willing to help and love me through anything. Also jobs for both me and Matt to help us to start our lives together in this crazy mixed up world.

Shower is calling and then bed for this girl, tired beyond belief
