Things Just Got Real

The fact that the wedding is fast approaching now seems more real than ever.

This past Friday, my wife-to-be and I performed our wedding dance routine for a crowd of students at the dance studio where we've been taking lessons. It went off without a hitch, and was incredibly fun! Our "routine" doesn't actually have a step-by-step plan, and is instead a collection of moves we've learned in tune to our song that we improvise by me leading her and signaling what to do next, complete with a beginning and ending. Given this, it was awesome to be able to adapt to the space we had and prove to ourselves that we could make the dance look fluid.

Then on Saturday and Sunday we were nonstop prepping for the wedding and honeymoon. We went shopping for this week's groceries, as well as for last-minute supplies for the honeymoon, and even got around to doing some packing.

I'll say it again; the fact that the wedding is fast approaching seems more real than ever. It seems to be all we talked about all weekend. We managed to carve out a bit of time to go out to lunch together, but even then the conversation barely took more than a step away from talking about the big day. We'd wake up and our first words to each other would be along the lines of "less than a week away!" and "I can't believe we're finally getting married! It's about time!" Even while we sat on the couch at night watching the latest episode of Game of Thrones, we'd occasionally look at each other, smile, cuddle even closer, and tell each other how much we love each other and how excited we are.

I think it's safe to say that this next Saturday is going to be one of the best days of my life.
