THANK YOU to everyone who left me a comment yesterday!
i feel so loved :) ya'll are so thoughtful and had the sweetest things to say, thank you so very much. i knew if i wrote out what i felt and at least heard someone's opinion i would feel better and wow do i ever! i feel like i have people to reach out to for help now if need be, thanks to those of you who offered assistance, so kind of you. between all you wonderful ladies, my billy, my besties and my mom i'm sure everything will work out perfect in the end!
i know until we set a date and make plans, i'll continue to constantly get those same questions (when, where, why) from people i work with, family, friends....and until then i'll just continue to say we are enjoying being engaged. which is totally true!
b and i know the day we get married is all about us and devoting our lives together. that is the reason we want to have a small intimate wedding. i think our first option right now would be to get married in my parents backyard and have a reception somewhere local including friends and other family. i love the idea of having appetizers and cocktails instead of the 5 course meal. the other option, that i have a feeling my mom would be against, would be getting away somewhere just the two of us, getting married, coming back and having a reception. of course we will have lots of photos no matter what we decide to do.
i will keep everyone posted as we figure things out. thanks for all the support you lovely girlies, i really appreciate it!
edit - sticking with thankful thursday, for this week.....i'm incredibly thankful for all of you!
