Wedding Date Set and Thoughts...

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Well, I actually feel like I have accomplished quite a bit in the last 24 hours. We have booked our hotel room for our trip, AND, we have decided on a wedding date. I decided on 3 choices and then asked Barry to pick a number (it's true, that's how we decided!) and... our wedding is going to be on May 11th, 2013! I really wanted a spring wedding so it won't be so cold/hot out, the flowers will just be blooming and it gives me (I hope) enough time to plan some things. It is not going to be a huge wedding, not at all. I want something small, but elegant.

I'm not really looking forward to tomorrow, though. Tomorrow would have been my mom's 63rd birthday, and it's her first birthday that she isn't here to enjoy with all of us. I'm prepared that it will be a tough day. Luckily, tomorrow is my day off so we are headed out to the graveyard in the morning. My dad wants to have a barbeque tomorrow afternoon -- I don't know if he's truly worried about me being alone tomorrow (Barry has to work tomorrow afternoon) or if he just doesn't want to be alone tomorrow either. I think when I had to celebrate my last birthday it was harder, just because she always made such a huge deal out of our birthdays -- there was always a party, get-together, cake, presents, a big home cooked meal, etc. She always made it memorable! And when her birthday would come around, it was almost as if she didn't want any attention on herself, or want any of us to spend any money on her. Regardless, I think tomorrow will be tough. And on that sad note, I am going to share some cuteness with you:

  1. Well congrats on picking a date! I remember when I picked mine, it was such a relief. I kind of felt like I couldn't really start planning until I had a date.

    And I'm so sorry that tomorrow will be such a sad day for you. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers tonight.

    1. I know, I feel the same way now! It's been over a year since we were engaged, but, I just had to have something 'official'. Now, the fun part begins! :)

      And thank you very much for your thoughts and prayers!

  2. So sorry for your loss and I hope that you can get through the day with good memories and thoughts. Thanks for sharing and I am a new follower from the GFC hop.

  3. I'm so sorry about your mother, so try and use her birthday as a day to celebrate her. She wouldn't want you guys to be sad.
