Wedding Planning

Still far away, but it’s getting closer and closer. I’m so excited but unfortunately I have to wait just a bit longer to get everything sorted out. The process of requesting my visa is a really long one, it takes a bit of patience but it’s all going to turn out just fine.

Lately I’ve read through some magazines, I did some browsing online and made a few plans together with the fiance and the best part is I see him getting more interested in the wedding. He’s suggested a theme, looking for a suit and we’re more often discussing wedding-related things.

Last week I finally did my first official “wedding” purchase! We’re slowly collecting and purchasing all the bits and pieces for our special day. I can’t do too much at the moment because it is still so early and we don’t have a specific date in mind yet but we’re trying to plan whatever we can, for now it’s waiting for good news.

A Very Special Day

My last few weeks have been total chaos, work on and off and preparing for the boyfriend’s visit. As most of you know I’m in a long distance relationship and I usually travel to the States to see my boyfriend, this time it was going to be a little different. Five years ago I met him for the very first time IRL when he visited me and after all this time he was going to come over again for a short visit in the Netherlands. We had a few things planned including Dutch Comic Con the first weekend and a few city trips the next week. DCC was definitely a fun convention, and it ended in a very special way.

If the picture and the intro of this post didn’t give it away yet. We got engaged It was a very special moment that I’m glad I got to share with a few of my close friends. We’ve talked about our future in the past, discussed marriage and all of that, and even though I knew this was going to happen sometime in the near future I hadn’t expected him to ask me so early during his visit here. I was surprised, of course super happy but also very grateful he took into consideration to ask me with a few of my close friends present. Obviously I cried a lot of happy tears and received lots of love from everyone who congratulated us. Without any fancy words, I just feel so, so, blessed.

Now comes planning the wedding and all the other fun stuff, I’m really excited and definitely looking forward to our new adventure.
