First Date

One year ago from today we had our first date. Earlier tonight we had our "anniversary". I thought that she looked absolutely beautiful and enjoyed the conversation over dinner. We were corny in that we dressed very similar to how we were dressed on the first date. We never went to the same restuarant though but made it to a great restaurant where the food was great and the dessert was to die for. I think this is one of the many things that I look forward to when I do marry this awesome lady; I look forward to our different anniversaries. I wonder if she remembers the day when we first kissed? Then again I better check if I remember.

my veil

I think this veil is beautiful, simple, and modest without being too conventional. I like the idea of being unique and not looking just like every other bride who is walking down the aisle next summer. I want to express myself and be different.

I stumbled across the look while visiting some Australian websites but knew I had no plans to order from a milliner somewhere in the pacific. I began searching for places a little closer to home. It took me a while to figure out what this veil is called. Veilette, short short veil, mini veil, ultra mini veil, were all terms that I tried to use to search google. Guess what they're called: Birdcage veils. Sometimes also Visor veils.

I plan on getting one that's long enough to reach to my chin so someone will have something to lift up when the Pastor says, "You may kiss the bride".

a beautiful quotation

Love is a force. . . . It is not a result;
it is a cause.  It is not a
It is a
power, like money, or steam
or electricity.  It is valueless unless you
can give something else by means of it.

Chest pains anyone?

I pay attention to more things having to do with weddings and marriages these days not that I'm becoming a bigger sap than I already am but I am just making sure other people have done this before. Yes I'm a little apprehensive not just about the day but about the preparation for that day. To relieve some of that apprehension I know what I have to do...I have to get myself in gear right now. I have to start making some calls and getting answers to some questions. Now what do I do about the tightness in my chest due to the savings for that day? I'm sure that will pass.

Nice Decision

The big big just thinking about it makes me a little nervous; makes my insides begin to wiggle. I am nervous about the lady but nervous about how everything will eventually unfold. This is a great idea though; we will get some laughs later on. Thanks for involving me.

I decided

that I needed some place to organize my thoughts and have a record of the preparation involved in preparing. . .
it'll make for some laughs later on
