Today, I met with my mom and a Nick’s mom to discuss our wedding shower.  I finally feel as if we have most of our ducks in a row when it comes to the wedding and the preceding festivities.  It feels good and I can say that I am finally excited more than stressed about everything.  It’s a welcome change, that’s for sure!

When I started planning my wedding, I noticed that many people had the same piece of advice for us: enjoy the wedding day as much as you can because it goes by in a blur.  What they didn’t say, however, is that the engagement goes by in a blur as well.  Nick proposed on August 15th, just over five months ago.  In that time, we’ve seen our lawn lose its bright green shade, leaves change and foliage disappear, snow fall and ice harden.  We’ve celebrated holidays with our families, enjoyed countless football games on lazy Sundays, eaten many meals, played games, celebrated our birthdays, and (enjoyed) wasting time in front of the television.

It will be summer again when we walk down the aisle, but I know it will be here before we know it.  I never imagined it would go so quickly!  If months can pass so swiftly, I can only imagine that the day itself will go by in the blink of an eye.  I just hope I’m not the one blinking because if there’s anything I know for sure, it’s that I don’t want to miss a second of it!

Questions to Consider:

  • Which day or time in your life passed by quickly?
  • Does time only seem to pass by quicker when we have something to “count down” to or does it always pass at the same speed for you?
