8 days

Hi everyone,

well it's only 8 little days until the wedding. Crazy.
Not too big of a deal though, we have all the big things taken care of, the dress the marriage commissioner, the venue, food etc. Now it's just the little things like seating charts etc.

It's been a bit of a roller coaster. I don't think you can truly understand unless you've been married. There are so many emotions you go through, the loss of your life as a single, your becoming a 'we', and people start acting different. Your single friends don't call as much because they don't want to be reminded that they're single. Then there are all the friends who are in relationships. I can't tell you how many people have said "Congrats, now if only I can get X to propose" or "Oh, you were engaged after 8 months, we'll I've been with X for 8 years and still no ring". How do you even respond to that?

All in all I'm thrilled. I'm marrying the most perfect man for me in the whole world. I can't believe I even thought of spending my life with my ex. I guess I saved a divorce lawyer a lot of time.

That's really what it comes down to. I can't imagine not waking up next to Andrew for the rest of my life. I am truly happy.

Love E

P.S. I'll be sure to post pics.
