Less than 1 month to go...

When I first got engaged back in December 2011, September 2013 seemed so very far away. Now, the wedding date is in just under 1 month and time is just pouring through my fingers like sand! I have been thinking today about how much has changed since Mr Diy-Dolly proposed on Charles Bridge on that cold Thursday afternoon.

During the wedding planning process, there has been a fair amount of drama and changes of circumstances. All of the following have happened in the past year or so:
  • We got a dog
  • I lost weight 
  • My dad got married
  • I made a lovely new friend
  • Our best man got married
  • My sister-in-law-to-be got married
  • I bought a wedding dress that did not fit
  • My bridesmaid 'quit the wedding'
  • I lost several old friends
  • I had a nervous breakdown
  • We mourned the loss of our beloved dog
  • We moved house
  • I quit my job of 4 years
  • I put on weight
  • My maid of honour got married
  • My maid of honour got pregnant
  • I got a new job
  • My dad was made redundant
  • My poor maid of honour had a miscarriage
  • My stepdad is potentially losing his job
Life is life, I know, but it's been a bit of a rollercoaster couple of years for me, my husband-to-be, my family and my friends. The wedding will be a time when all of us come together and for just one day, try to put the negative experiences of the past behind us and celebrate the positives, as well as the wonderful things we may do or have in the future. 

And on this moment of reflection, I have to thank everyone that has stood by me through one of the most difficult and changeable times in my life to date. They say everyone goes through a major personality change every 10 years or so, but what they don't tell you is that it is normally in reaction to life changing drastically around you. I am truly blessed to have some amazing people in my life who, despite all these changes, still love me for who I am. Not least of all, my ever enduring husband-to-be, without whom I would not be here today. And in 3 weeks and 5 days I get to stand up in front of all those amazing people and tell him just that. :)
