Wedding Crunch Time
“Holy shit” I thought to myself on the way to work this morning, “I’m getting married two weeks from today!”.
Naturally, it’s not a bad thing, it’s just the realization is starting to set in a bit. For those who’ve known me for an extended period of time, you may know I used to think that I’d never get married. Not because I was a swingin bachelor who couldn’t ever give up the lifestyle, but because I could never find the ‘perfect’ girl.
Of course, all that changed when I met Jenny. I knew right off the bat that there was a very high chance that she was the one I’d been waiting for, and I prayed every night that I wouldn’t somehow screw it up :)
So here we are, days away from our (“real”) wedding, and it’s hard not to think about all the great times we’ve shared together – even daydream a bit about all the great years we’ve got in front of us. It’s kind of wierd, but as the Big Day nears, a lot of things I encounter during the normal day now remind me of a time or place or feeling that we shared together, and that’s pretty cool.The wedding getting closer is kind of like walking towards a big full sized mirror. The closer you get, the field of view behind you widens in the reflection of the mirror, but at the same time, you yourself come into focus and things that you couldn’t see when you started walking are visible in great detail now. Walking towards the future you start seeing both your past and present with great clarity, and you’re thankful an event can put things in such perspective.
Of course, before that moment of perfect clarity, there’s still quite a bit of work to do, and as is becomming more and more apparent, not a whole lot of time left to do it :)
