One month from today

One month from today, I will be walking down the aisle to marry my best friend. I have been looking forward to this day since he popped the question on July 2nd of last year. The wedding planning process hasn't been overly stressful for us, and we've had such an amazing time picking everything out. I've been doing all of the planning and organizing myself without the help of a planner, because in truth I don't think I could give up control of such an important day. While I know there will be some areas of imperfection (everyone has warned me not to panic when something goes wrong, because something always goes wrong), I am so much looking forward to the big day. 

Tim and I are getting married on July 21st, 2012, and we started dating on July 20th, 2008. Throughout our time dating, we've had downs and (more) ups, we've traveled together, we've eaten good food together, we've laughed together, and we've cried together. And while there has been so much more that has happened during these (almost) four years in each of our lives and our lives together, it's knowing that we're able to share those things that makes what we're doing in a month so sweet.

And to slightly alter a movie quote from 500 Days of Summer
Tim is better than the man of my dreams. He's real. 

I can't wait to share all of the details with you after the wedding. It's been so much fun picking them all out, and I've wanted to keep it fairly secret until it actually happens. We're leaving the day after the wedding to head to Kauai on our honeymoon, and we'll be gone a bit over a week. I am not going to wish any second of the next month away, because I know it all goes so fast. I just hope I can document it well enough that we'll have detailed memories of it forever.
