And I am very excited!
I’m Katie, and the handsome man beside me is my best friend and future husband, Robert! Robert asked me to marry him, after dating for about a year and a half, while on a short weekend vacation to Virginia Beach on June 26, 2009.
As luck would have it, our scheduled wedding date is June 26, 2010, exactly one year after he popped the question. It’s sappy, I know, but it’s still cute, right?!
That’s Big Step Numero Uno – The Wedding
And no, there isn’t just one ‘big step’ at this time in my life, because that just wouldn’t be my style 🙂
Big Step #2: The House
Yes, you heard…read…right. The House. Not our current abode. We are building a brand-spankin’ new house with all the fixin’s, due to be complete by November 2009 (yes, that is this year…wow!)
Ahh, all of lifes joys coming at me in one lump sum. How lovely 🙂
I am excited though, really! And I’m even more excited to be able to write personal notes about the process of marrying my best friend and building our house that I will be able to look back on and cherish. This should also provide a way for family and friends to keep up with our goings on and potentially an outlet for them to give us feedback on some of our different ideas.
Our wedding will be beautiful (no doubt about that!), as will our home, both of which we are trying to do it as economically as possible, from a cheaper wedding venue to DIY invites, save the dates, decorations and other odds and ends to lucky finds on home decor and choosing all of the different options that will eventually make our home ‘our home’.
Hopefully you all enjoy reading this blog as much as I’ll enjoy writing it (most days). Come back often for updates!
