Ive learned a lot. Thanks
Our wedding rings. The middle one is my engagement ring.
Nine days from today we will be standing at the altar of my hometown’s church, promising to love each other till the heavens burst and the words don’t rhyme, and then we get to wear these rings for the rest of our lives.
Could I be any happier. I honestly don’t think so.
It just hit me the other day that we’re only a little over five weeks from our wedding day. Five weeks. Time is flying by and to be honest, it’s kind of overwhelming. I really cannot wait to start our life as a married couple, but then on the other hand I feel really weird that I am here. I cannot believe this is happening. I feel like any minute now I might wake up from the most beautiful dream. But this is no dream, this is happening and this is happening very soon.
We’re going to have a rehearsal dinner on the night before our wedding though it’s not a traditional thing to do in Finland. That night is going to be here in exactly five weeks. I feel that it’s really important to get my family (my parents + my sister and brother) and our closest friends to spend that evening with us, maybe barbequeing and just relaxing and having a good time. I have decided to get everyone a little something as a thank you for all their help with this wedding stuff, and to write my parents letters because I know I will never ever be able to say everything I’d like them to hear. I’m tearing up right now at the thought of it for crying out loud… But yeah, it’s gonna be a beautiful, beautiful night.
And I don’t care if it’s gonna rain the whole day through on June 11th. I say let it come. For these are the days it never rains but it pours, and I’m enjoying every minute of drowning in this happiness.
