There are 70 days until I marry David Snow. 70! Where has the time gone? I remember when we got engaged it felt like a year was going to feel like... well.. A YEAR, but this has felt more like a few months. Engagement has been all that I had hoped for and more. I know some people think they need to have all their ducks in a row before they get engaged, but David and I are possibly a little different. I think we used this past year as a betrothed couple (side note: great word) to really plan out our future together. When do we want to have kids? Eventually. Maybe we didn't need a whole year to decide on that, but it was a big moment for us to decide they will be here eventually. We are thinking at least five years down the road. When will we buy a house? Eventually. This we don't have a year mark on, but considering the kid might need one, we will go with in the next five years as well. Why so open ended on our future? Because we don't want to put limits on what can happen!! Who knows where we will be in a year, much less five? If we set up 'must do's' each year we are together, we might cut off chances for even bigger things to happen for us. So no, we don't have specific plans on year milestones David and I should be at, but we have faith we will be at each one eventually. We also have faith our life will continue to be unique, fun, and paced just how we want it to. So yeah, that was what we used our year engaged doing: planning our life together in the most Shannon and David way we can. We are so excited to see what life brings us once we marry, but we are so happy already. Isn't that what marriage is supposed to be like? A nice cherry on top. I already knew years ago when I met David he was my person. I love every spontaneous and wonderful moment with him so I don't want that to stop just because we are getting married. We will get to the hits eventually, but until then we will create new hits unique to just us! Hip Hip Hooray!
