I’m getting married in nine days. We finished off the majority of our wedding planning about two weeks ago, so I’ve just been pitter-pattering at a few tasks left (maybe a couple hours a day of errands and the like?) but the “bulk” of it feels done. Some of my things are moved into Randy’s place already (all my books! I have so many beautiful books! – moving those were fun) but most of my life is still here, at my parent’s house. I’m not single, I’m not married, I don’t have all my things here, I don’t have all my things there. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself at the moment – it’s been an odd last week with all of these emotions – but above all, peaceful.
Today I’m headed out to buy more candy for our candy bar, make pretty labels for all of the jars and containers, finish off a few of our playlists and sync them to our phone, buy a couple last-minute thank you gifts and some sharpies for guests to sign our guestbook and maaaaybe look over the vows I wrote to Randy once more. A few more things to check off include finishing the seating chart (we had a few cancellations last minute sooo I have to re-print it) and printing our vows and the reading on some nice card stock for the ceremony. Besides that, I’m watching the time pass, reading a good book Randy gave me (Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek – “to help you relax!”) and waiting until Wednesday when a few friends start coming into town. Then we’ll get married Friday.
It feels very surreal and very normal at the same time. I’m thankful to feel very much at peace, little to no stress (that was earlier in engagement and planning! hah!) and to have time to look forward to my “dream wedding.” What a crazy time.
