About twelve years ago you took a chance asking me out. Nearly six years ago I took a chance and agreed to go out with you. A year ago you asked me to be your wife. And today I stand before all my family and friends to make a promise with you.

 

You have stood by my side and have never run away from our troubles. You have loved me unconditionally and have always made me smile. Your infectious laugh and great smile make it hard for me to stay mad at you. For these reasons I will always love you.

 

I, Kittywolf13, vow to always stand by your side, to be your strength when you need it and your comfort always. I will love you unconditionally as you have done with me and I will try not to annoy you too much!

 

Groom, I love you from the bottom of my heart and soul.

I had fully intended to write a letter to my groom, every night starting on the 10th day prior to the wedding... I only got two days down because things got so crazy hectic i was never able to stick to my plan! None the less i figured i could share the two i did get:

Jan 22, 2014, 10 days out - 

 

So today marks ten days till our wedding day. It's so crazy that our engagement came and went so fast and that our wedding day is fast approaching. It feels like just yesterday the wedding was over a 100 days away! There's so much to do and so little time but I'm at ease with the thought that everything will be ok.

 

 Today I made arrangements for the rehearsal and finished about 95% of the name tags. We also received our first wedding registry gifts in the mail! That was very exciting!! 

 

One of the packages was addressed to my new name. It was both odd but also not as foreign to me as I thought I would be. I hesitated for awhile over my feelings about changing my name to be honest. I have had my name for 30 years... It will be odd to have a new name. I've relinquished my maiden name as a pen name but may add it as a second middle name? I haven't decided yet. Guess I better make up my mind huh? 

 

Also I think we've decided to write our own vows. I'd really like too. If I'm going to cry at the alter it better be about the stirring words I'll say as well as hear from you. I think it will be nice and will personalize the ceremony a little more then usual. Well see what happens right? Now I need to find inspiration. 

 

I've already been honest that I'm worried about living together. I'm not certain how I will handle being with someone 24 hours a day that isn't my family. But when I'm apart I find I'm always missing you. Your the part that's always missing and I'm always thinking of you. And I'm happiest when I'm with you. Even if I'm bored and sitting around. Yes that will be an argument but know that I'm still happy to sit around knowing your in the same space with me. Lord knows I sleep better with you around, when your not stealing the sheets anyways. I can only hope I live up to all you hope and see that I am. I find it hard to live up to your vision sometimes and I usually feel very inadequate about it. But we shall prevail right? I really love you for you have touched my soul in places I thought no one could touch. 

 

--------------------------------------

 

Jan 23, 2014 - 9 days out

 

So today I worked on more lists and some more tags and started hashing out a little bit of our vows. It's a little harder then I expected but I can do it. I was in good spirits all day and mostly excited about the day. 

 

I'm really enjoying this feeling of joy and am seriously almost dreading the wedding only because I don't know what I will do afterwards! A year or more of planning for just one day. Something so complicated for one moment in time. It feels so surreal and I simply can't wrap my head around the idea that in 9 days I'll be married! Me! It's so weird to think about it like that. To think about it all. I really hope I can slow the day down for myself and really enjoy it. I want to really take my time walking down the isle and during our first dance, first kiss. I just want time to stop for those moments. I can't wait to see your face that morning and I really hope it will be an expression I'll never forget... And please forgive me if I start giggling at you. I assure it's probably the nerves. I'm not laughing at you. Every time I think about it I think I'm not ready and yet every time I lay in bed I think I'm ready for the next chapter in my life where I don't go to bed by myself. 

 

So here's hoping the excitement continues to build, that there will be no disappointment, and that everything will be beautiful and ok!

 

P.s. Did I mention I'm freaking out because the hair stylist canceled on me 9 days before the wedding??!

 

---------------------

 

So those are the only two letters i got around to writting. LOL! I guess not everything goes according to plans right?

So it's officially been one year since we got engaged! I can't really believe it's been a year already to be honest. To celebrate we went back to Holiday Matsuri where we got engaged at. It was a great time seeing all our friends again. One of our friends that made the magic happen last year got me all dressed up in a kimono for the dance that evening. It was a lot of fun!

 

 

It was a lot of fun during the dance as we hung out with said friends and danced and laughed and watched the shows. At some point during the dance Chris had them play our song again and he pulled out a small gift box for me. It was completely unexpected. Inside was a necklace with an amethyst pendant. He told me it was amethyst because that's February birthstone, which is the month we started dating and the month we will be wed, and there's a little secret in the back, a D for my new married last name. It was technically an early Christmas gift but he felt like giving it to me at the dance. I was moved. There was more tears and more photos! He's so sneaky.

 

 

 

So on this Christmas day I figured it would be appropriate to share our 1 year anniversary for our engagement on Christmas. ;) Merry Christmas to you and your family! Hope you have a very blessed day!!

Guess I have been bad and i haven't updated this blog in a long while! My last update was back in August! Oops! 

 

In my last post i spoke about finally finding a venue but it not being official...well by now its official! Along with a ton of other things! We finally got our venue, ceremony location, engagement shoot done (which means we have our photographer picked out!), menu finalized, color Scheme, center pieces picked out, invites picked out, D.J. hired, and tons more! And i know there's more i forgot to mention!

 

Planning a wedding can be crazy hectic, and sometimes as the bride I wanted to scream and cry! Your emotions go all over the place and sometimes you just don't understand it. Like when we had complications with finding a church... the first one never really got back to us, my second choice was awesome right up till they realized they double booked my wedding with a festival on the same day!!! But they came through and found me a beautiful church to get married in! But I have to say this has been an amazing process and I've had so much fun and learned so much!! I've become so much closer with my friends and learned a ton about myself!! I will also note that there is ALWAYS something you did not think to ask about until someone else asks! As much as I want my special day to get here, I'm having so much fun that i kind of DONT want it to get here... So I'm hoping to help my friends out with their wedding's so the wedding fun doesn't have to stop!

 

I'll try and remember to update more often as the count down slinks closer to the day of!
