Live in the Now!

Oh, March. I have never been a big fan of March. It feels like the longest and least eventful month of the year. I suppose that if my birthday were in March or I loved college basketball or I had some kind of strange love of St. Patrick's Day, I would feel differently, but it seems that March just always drags on for me. This year, it was the worst. I've been counting the minutes until March is over because it's been a hard school month for me, but more importantly, we're getting married in April, so March just meant that there was at least a month left. But luckily, we're finally on the right side of a month away from the big day! It's pretty awesome. Sometimes it feels like we're not actually getting married in three and a half weeks and other times, it feels like we're already married. It's weird being engaged. I've been over it for a while, and I know I'm not alone in feeling this way. Almost everyone I've talked to has told me that being engaged wasn't really their favorite thing. It was fun getting engaged, but actually being engaged is just kind of a weird, less desirable time. But thanks to March being on its way out, our wait is also on its way out.

Quinn and I decided to adopt the moto of living in the now (originally from Wayne's World) a few weeks ago because we just found ourselves (mostly me) constantly counting down and wishing time would go faster. The moto really worked! I started having a much better attitude about everything and we had good days almost every day because if you're living in the now, you can't really have a bad day. We've been pretty good about continuing to live by our moto, but with the wedding so close, it's become increasingly tempting to slip back into the countdown mode (especially since every time I blog, I update my countdown--ha). But, starting today, I'm going to live in the now again! Oh, Garth. He's like the smartest man alive.

Being engaged majorly sucks. I'm sorry. I seriously feel bad for people who are engaged for more than 3 months. You're almost there though! Hooray!

That's funny because March is my favorite month of the year! I have a March birthday and so does Garrett, so it's a party month at our house. March usually also means Spring, but this year has been kind of nasty. Here's to great things in April!!! :)
