6 Months til I DO!

They all say your engagement flies by so enjoy it, and it's true.

In a mere 6 months I marry the man I've loved for almost 7 years. The guy I can't imagine life without.

In 6 months I'm no longer living my life for me but for us. I get to wake up to him every morning and I don't have to leave him at night anymore to drive home. I get to take care of him - and yes I am excited about that aspect. A man always needs a woman's tender love and care :).

These next 6 months are going to fly by so I'm planning on enjoying these last few months at home and enjoying everything that life has to offer before I say, "I Do." And I can't wait to to stand at that altar, look into Nate's gorgeous green eyes and commit myself to him forever!

Let's Talk About Moving Out of My Parent's House

Let me preface this by saying that I'm incredibly thrilled and anxious to marry Nathan and start our lives together. In fact, I can't wait to come back from our Honeymoon and bask in the joy that I don't have to leave him, ever. 

But, there is one thing I am absolutely to my core dreading - moving out of my parent's house.

I'm the girl who never liked to spend the night at friend's homes because I liked being home and being comfortable in my surroundings. I never went away to College because I knew I'd be homesick and after a semester I'd move back home. I drove an hour each way to school for 4 years. Do I regret it? No. I knew what was best for me.

I'm not afraid to say that I'm inching upward to that 25 year old mark and I still live in daddy and mama's house. I've never envisioned myself living out on my own (okay, well I was just never in the cards for me). Somewhere deep down, I knew I'd live with my parent's til I got married.

But now that I'm getting married in a mere six months I get more and more emotional about moving out. I know how emotional I'll be when I start moving my furniture much so that I've decided to only move the essentials to Nathan's before we get married. All the big stuff will just have to wait til after we get married because I won't be able to handle it. I will be one crying mess.

But I'll cross that hurdle when I get to it and hopefully it won't be as horrible as I imagine it, because I can say will full certainty that I'm more excited about getting married than I'm dreading moving out of the house I've lived in for 20 years....and that's the facts, Jack.
