332 days.

Yes, I know. A little soon to have a countdown but when you have been together for almost 6 years how can you resist counting down the days that you get to be together, physically, NEAR each other and not long distance bull crap. (you can tell how I feel about that).

I am so looking forward to our marriage. and I don't want that to get lost in the bulk of wedding related posts I will be doing coming up. But! Weddings are so much fun to talk about and there are so many details that go into planning a wedding and I am so excited to share this journey on my new blog!

First things first.

Picking a date. 
This is one of the first things Conrad and I did. There were so many options, and if it had been left entirely up to us and including no common sense we might have got married this summer. (Yes, in a few months.) Once we actually thought about it, we realized it would be even better if we could get married and be able to stay together and not go our separate ways back to college. 
We each have to return to school in the Fall. He will be playing his last season of college football, while I will be student teaching. We will each graduate and be done with college in December 2013. Sooo..

That brings us to...
January 11th 2014. 
OUR wedding day! 
We decided to pick a day soon after our graduation because we will be moving to Chicago. We didn't want to postpone moving out there for six months in order to have a summer wedding. So we are breaking the mold and going to have a blast at our winter wedding. 

Don't let this picture fool you... It will not be on a beach. 
Hang on. Location next!


  1. A winter wedding would be super cute! I totally get what you mean about not wanting to wait any longer after you've been together for forever and so you're getting married soon after graduation. Exactly why we picked June 2014 for ours. It sucks waiting but I don't graduate til that May. Anyway, I'm super happy for you girl!

  2. Yes I am so excited for it! :) You know what it is like for sure! :)
