Don't forget what it's really about!

I haven't posted in a while because there has been nothing to post. We have some options for a reception venue, but unfortunately it's come down to money and communication. I'm just waiting for my parents to get on the same page, meet, discuss, agree, committ... not an easy feat when you have divorced parents! Once both parties are fully committed, we will be able to move forward booking an official date and putting the deposit down. Corey and I have put our deposit in for the photographer (something we are fully paying for by ourselves!) So things are coming along, just coming along much slower than anticipated at this point. Once we have picked our venue, I'll be back here gushing and blogging up a storm. For now, we're at a standstill.

Regardless of financial issues, regardless of disfunctionality or complications, I never forget what this day is truly about. It's not about filet mignon, napkin rings or guest baskets. It's not even about the music, the food or the guests (though those are all important and wonderful). It's about a lifetime committment to the one you love. The rest is just a celebration of the decision you publicly made to cherish eachother through sickness, health, happiness and sorrow. Many girls, no offense, want to get engaged so they can have a wedding. Yes, I am a Cinderella at heart, and also a 6 year old at heart, but more importantly, I'm an adult making a big decision, and the best decision, to spend my life with the most admirable man I've known (besides Jesus, of course). DON'T FORGET WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!
