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
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!
