Upon reviewing various examples of wedding ceremonies, Kevin is a little disappointed...It appears as though women are no longer required to obey their husbands...imagine that...tsk, tsk, tsk...I wonder why he's so concerned that I won't obey...I really hate that for him...He's got a long road ahead of him.

We have been so incredibly busy these last couple of weeks. Last week was the first week of school with the children. Kevin was out of town on work business. So there hasn't been much time for wedding planning. We're just struggling to get through daily life right now. We have been tossing around a couple of ideas about a honeymoon. We may take a short trip for our honeymoon right afterward and then take a longer one in January. We want to be back in town for our first Christmas together. We are looking at different wedding ceremonies that can be performed and trying to decide which one best suits us. I'm still trying to decide about wedding flowers. I think David and Katie Hagood of Hagood Photography in Millbrook will do the wedding pictures and portrait. So that's another check off of our list. I haven't found anyone to video the wedding for me. I'm hoping to find someone for cheap or free. My uncle use to do that kind of thing, but he has aged and can't hold the camera steady. We are also reading some books about marriage and relationships right now recommended by the pastor who will marry us. I plan on ordering the invitations this week. We're both still so excited about being engaged. We had an engagement announcement photo made for the papers. We're trying to decide on music for the ceremony as well. Sometimes it seems as though all this will never come together. I would have been perfectly happy just going away somewhere to get married, but since Kevin wants a wedding I want it to at least be a nice one.

The cool thing about being a teacher is that when you get engaged over the summer, it still takes a couple of months for everyone to find out. I'm still enjoying sharing the news with all my coworkers and students. A little boy in my class said the cutest thing to me today...He said, "Ms. Miller, le me see yo ring....Is that yo Will you marry me ring or yo kiss the bride and say I do ring?" Ah the teachable moment. I explained that my Will you marry me ring is called my engagement ring. I told him I'd be wearing two rings in January and I'd show him my Kiss the bride and say I do wedding band then. Love those ten-year-olds!
