Bridal Show #1 for me.
So much planning, so much craziness, and it's extremely easy to get caught up in it.
I'm happy for her. She deserves a really special day with the man she's still completely smitten with. Even after 11 years.
And since she won't force a pink dress on me, I can't complain either.
My speech will ruin the poor girl. I should start writing; I only have a year to perfect it.
It was odd to see all the BTB's (Brides To Be) who were younger than me.
Especially the ones I actually knew.
I can't imagine being married at 24 or younger. And yet so many girls I know are married with kids already.
"Congratulations on your engagement. When's the happy day?" was the phrase I heard over and over.
Um, no. Not me. Her.
It's insane to think of how I once had marriage plans. Down to our ages, wedding size, type, and the songs.
Oh, the songs.
It shows how immature I am; I see that now.
I get starry-eyed and stop listening to the logical voice in my head that says "This will never work, and you know it."
But I want to be sure.
When I say vows, I want 'em to stick.
When I have kids, I want them to know that Mom & Dad are a lifetime fixture.
The problem is..
If I've fooled myself before, how am I supposed to know when it IS right?
I dunno... I'm not psychic, man.
