Engagement pictures. Three showers. A bachelorette. And cake, so much cake.

After sleeping, eating, and breathing this wedding for just about 490 days we have three days left. And I really couldn't be more excited for it be here and just be married. I can't wait to read some books for pleasure again and start training for my second half marathon. And I really can't wait to have some money back in my bank account.
But I promise I'm not wishing it away, I'm just so ready for it be here. I'd like to compare engagement to purgatory--and I have just been waiting so patiently to get to the other side and be married. As excited as I am to see 490 days of my blood, sweat, and tears (literally, all three have been present in this endeavor) come to fruition on Saturday, I still often have fleeting dreams of a simple and sweet elopement in a little white dress with our closest family and friends nearby. Focusing on what really is important when it comes to a wedding and not the nitty gritty details that I can't wait to stop thinking about.
However, it's going to be so worth it because every bone in my body knows that Saturday is going to be the best day. All of our best friends and family in the same place, our favorite foods, our favorite drinks, and our favorite music to celebrate spending the rest of my life with my favorite person. And I don't think it gets any better than that.
490 long days, all for one big day. It's time to get married y'all!
