#goinboan in 3...2...1...!

Ladies and gentlemen...we are THREE days from the wedding!


My boss asked me a few months ago if I was going to take off the week of the wedding. He thought I was crazy, but I know myself. I would prefer to have something going on so I have less time to worry or be anxious about any of the wedding details. So, I decided to work Monday - Wednesday this week, and now I have just one more day in the office!

Speaking of countdowns, there have been so many to enjoy during this season:

  • The last holiday season as a single
  • The last trip for me to KS and Jacob to TX
  • The last goodbye of our long-distance relationship
  • The last weekend as a Livengood with my family
My dad texted the other morning and said we had 127 hours and 30 minutes until the ceremony. Now we're down to 89 hours and 10 minutes. Isn't it amazing how time can either seem to pass quickly or slowly? It seems to be dragging on right now...

It has been so fun to celebrate this season with family and friends. Jacob and I are so blessed by the generosity of community. The offers of assistance with planning, setup, tear-down, etc,. are so very kind. We are grateful for their thoughtfulness and willingness to lend a hand. It "takes a village" to plan and pull off a wedding!

And now instead of counting down lasts, we'll be looking forward to so many firsts:
  • First kiss as man and wife
  • First dance as man and wife
  • First vacation together
  • First house
  • First summer
And so much more!
