Every time I have a conversation with someone about being engaged, they almost always respond with "The big day will be here before you know it" or "Just enjoy the planning process." I want to cry every time someone says that to me.
Mark and I have been together for more than two years and we have been engaged for most of that time. I knew I wanted to marry him long before we even began dating and so no, the big day is not coming fast enough and the planning process cannot possibly be as much fun as being married. I am thankful for all of the experiences that we have had as a couple in the past two years and I am thankful for the lessons that we have learned together but I am ready to begin having them while living together.
In short I am, as I have been for quite a while, ready to be married. I am far more interested in being married, in having a lifetime of happiness, than I am in the act of getting married. Is it May 23rd yet?
