Hello my angels. It's been a while.
I won't bother you with excuses as to why it's been so long since my last post, as you know love and life happens.
But I will tell you this: I'm engaged! That's right. Iowa loverboy proposed to me on Valentine's day of this year at the airport in Omaha when I was on a surprise trip to see him. (FYI loverboy is back in Iowa finishing up some training etc for piloting. I meanwhile have been holding down the fort in LA and getting a lot more girl time in. And skype time.)
And yes, the wedding date and many of the plans are already set. We're only going to be engaged for 6 months before tying the knot in September. In another state. Across the country. I don't think one realizes how stressful planning a wedding is until they do a google search for wedding venues in the Charleston, WV area only to find that the Holiday Inn Express is listed in the top 5 results. I'll just tell you that my weekly date night on Friday with loverboy has turned into an affair with a $10 bottle of Syrah and episodes of The Tudors. (Which I'm sad to say I have watched through... now what!?)
Planning this wedding has taken some of my time that might otherwise be spent moping about my darling being back in the corn state, but it's still hard indeed. I have no one to calm me down and hold me after getting into a screaming match with my father over the catering budget. I have no one to give me a massage after listening to my grandparents complain about the 30 minute drive that they will have to take to get to the venue...
But knowing that loverboy will finally be ready to take on the piloting world with me as his new wife is all I need to remember how worthwhile this time apart is.
So this blog will be taking a turn; just for a while. I won't be going out near as much until he gets back due to the fact that I don't have him to go on a date with obviously, but also because that damn wedding budget is forcing me to take on extra work and limit my spending.
So I'm just gonna write about, well anything that comes to my head I suppose. Perhaps about long distance relationships, perhaps about my disappointment with the first 20 minutes of the Arrested Development pilot, or maybe just about my constant craving for sushi must be a health issue that should be addressed.
But either way...
Love on ag
