Following my stream of consciousness, today I may have found my wedding dress. I'm 90% sure its the one for me. I'm taking my dad to see it Friday and I'm hoping the other 10% comes from him. I don't know if you know this, but wedding gowns weigh approximately a million pounds. I fell in love with this one when I put it on and I did not feel as if an elephant was sitting on my chest or as if I was walking in mud. It is chiffon meaning light, flowy, and free. I feel like a butterfly when I'm wearing it. I feel like someone should be playing a harp when I put it on (which I did three times today at the dress shop). I could probably fly in that dress if I tried hard enough. Okay, okay, so I'm exaggerating that does not lessen the awesomeness of this dress. There is one more place that I need to visit on the recommendation of a friend, but it is going to be a hard one to beat. It's kinda the Karate Kid of dresses. I'll let you know how that progresses.

To tell the truth I haven’t been engaged very long, but it is still longer than I would like. Two months doesn’t seem like much to those who are reading this (if anyone is), but to someone as besotted and impatient as I am two months is frustrating and a whole year…Well a year is agony. A year is exactly how long I must wait to become the wife that God has called me to be. It will be a year of phone calls, text messages, skype dates, and even letters; a year full of uncertainty, loneliness, and forced distractions that will culminate into the happiest day of my life. Dear Lord why can I not just wake up and be married. However, since it does not seem as if I will go into an engagement coma anytime soon, I must spend the time apart planning a wedding while finishing my last year of undergraduate studies.
A wedding is something I both desire and dread. Weddings are for details people one of which I am not. It is overwhelming standing at the beginning of the process and looking towards next June. There are so many decisions to make from now to then. Did I mention that decisiveness is not one of my strong suits. Does anyone want to plan this wedding for me? I would greatly appreciate it. What? No takers? Did I mention you won't be paid for your time and effort and that you will have to work within a tight budget? That's what I thought. Oh well looks like it is up to me and my lovable but sometimes overbearing family. It's going to be a crazy ride.
