Dress Me Up

My mom has been pushing me to buy a cake cutting gown. I know this probably seems really weird to most of you, but back in the day (like 20 years ago when my aunts got married) it was the thing to do. In fact, you also had a first dance dress. Well I never really cared to have another dress. I've already spent alot on my wedding gown and I plan on wearing it all night. And plus, she's not the one thats going to pay for it. However, if I had all the money in the world and already bought my dream wedding and had about a couple of thousand just laying around, I would probably buy this beauty.

80 Days....

...My heart stopped for a moment when I saw the number. In less than three months I will be married. Why am I nervous? I have no idea. K and I have been dating for 6 years (this month) and have been living together for over 3 years. Our marriage prep sponsors asked us a question "what will change for you when you get married?"

I had no answer for this. The only thing I could think of was learning to work on the finances together. But that answer was not good enough for me. I was trying to think if anything about me would change. I thought, nothing would change. K and I really take each other for who we are. Opposites, yes, but it somehow works well for us. Our sponsors said that it was OK I didn't have an answer and that they could already see from just 2 meetings that we can be completely ourselves with each other and talk about our true feelings.

Does it make me vain because it made me feel good that complete strangers can see how much we love each other?
