How funny is it that two weeks into our engagement, Sav and I find ourselves thinking “2 weeks down, another 27 will kill us”? Waiting six months more to marry the love of my life just wasn’t going to do, so knowing that 2 was less than 6, we started thinking we should move up our wedding date. Well, I started thinking that. Talk ensued. Prayer took place. And talking to parents was necessary.
After much talk, the best of which took place between Sav and her mother, we decided to go ahead with a new date. I believe her mom told her something to the extent that she had been expecting it the whole time and was just waiting. That was a relief.
So now we will be getting married on the 2nd of January instead of the 1st of May. Much closer.
Lesson learned: long engagements sound great and look good on paper but are no fun in practice.
