magnolia

Yesterday I was given a display of magnolia flowers, hand-picked from a garden. BECAUSE I’M ENGAGED.

I’m sorry, I’m still getting used to the phrases “engaged”, “fiance”, “getting married”, etc.

We’ve been given a gazillion congratulations cards, something I wasn’t expecting since we’re of the generation that doesn’t seem to do cards anymore (myself included). I’ve decided to keep the cards on our sideboard for a long time since there’s still a good 18 months before the wedding.

I’ve also decided to put a ban on thinking about arrangements for the wedding until at least next year. Otherwise I’ll turn into a total Bridezilla. In reality I should be spending time catching up on normal things like housework (zomg I’m so far behind) and the new clients I have on the horizon.

But it’s so hard to turn my brain off. I’m now waking up at about 5.30am on weekdays and 6am on the weekends. I can’t think of anything decent to tweet about. My brain is about 23 steps ahead in organising the wedding that hasn’t even been organised yet. I don’t want to become the person who only talks about wedding preparations but I think I’m already halfway there.

Can you please tell me to shut up if I start talking about weddings too much? Be prepared to slap me across the face occasionally. Otherwise I’ll have to slap myself, and that could be interesting.

  1. rah, it’s okay – you’re ALLOWED to talk about the wedding. talking about it a lot does not make you a bridezilla!

    i promise to stop you if you start going psycho but for the time being, carry on being excited and getting carried away – it’s such fucking great news, you’re totally entitled to still be basking in the thrill!

  2. My advice?

    Indulge yourself….enjoy ….don’t hold back….

    Dive in and swim around in how it feels and share it with us …

    Everything else can wait a while.

    Congratulations….

  5. Congrats on the engagement! I’m about a month out from my wedding now…

    My only advice, don’t buy too many bridal magazines. Seriously, you don’t need to be kept up at nights wondering if your bonboniere will be up to scratch…
