Is nothing sacred?!?...and other thoughts...

So, remember how the honeymoon is all set? Totally booked? Going to be awesome? The one thing that no longer needs to be discussed/decided/figured out/changed??

Hmmm. That's what I thought anyways. I even told a couple of people yesterday (I know, a sure-fire way to jinx anything, even though I don't believe in jinxing...) how nothing has been sacred the last few months, everything has come under discussion - BUT AT LEAST THE HONEYMOON WAS PLANNED.

Yeah, so, guess what we talked about last night?? Whether we should change the honeymoon. It was a short conversation, and we're not, but still. It's the principle of the thing.


So, my wedding dress is IN. As in, the dress made for me. Because I am getting married. And in case you were wondering, yes, it is absolutely gorgeous and totally perfect for me. :)


So, have I mentioned lately what a great guy I'm marrying??
Here's a snippet of a conversation we had the other night (roughly translated since most of you are not fluent in Spanish):

Him: Love, I want you to be happy with me...
Me: Are you worried about this?
Him: Sometimes I think about it...

Poor guy is under a lot of pressure, between the job situation, the impact that has on the housing situation, knowing that I am leaving my family...
I told him not to be worried, because although there would be times when I would miss my family (for example), I am sure I will be happy with him. And then I sent off a card the next day, within which I reassured him that my hope and joy come from the Lord, and all I ask of him is to love me and pray for me. I don't want him to carry such a heavy burden..

Yeah, it's a big responsibility to know someone is giving up their whole life to be with you. I bet he thinks about it alot. I like how your responded to him.

One random thought of something to do for yourself: write out what you're expecting and hoping for life there. What you're fearing. What you think it will all look like. Include elements of what your life look might like outside of your marriage once you're there. It would be interesting to take that out and read it after a couple months, or years.

Sounds like you're rolling with all the changes in circumstances. I hope I'm wrong, but I have a feeling the Lord is prepping you for life in Mexico. Not so much life with your guy, just daily life requiring a lot of flexiblity and a humor response vs a frustration response.

I'm glad you have this blog though! It helps to hear what's going on for you.
