Thrown into it

Well, I've officially been a terrible blogger lately! I guess this month has been way more than I had imagined. The extra class has really added some stress...not to mention now I have a wedding to plan!
This weekend my soldier and I went home and made a lot of wedding plans. It was so much fun. I love making plans. I love it even more that I can make these plans with him. The fact that we can walk around town and talk about where we want to live and where we should have our reception and what our colors should be. It is everything I ever dreamed of.
However, I didn't dream of him leaving so quickly. We said goodbye for an extended amount of time this weekend. It hasn't really hit me yet. And I haven't decided if I should put the wedding plans on hold. Not that I am calling it off by any means! I just hate the thought of making a lot of decisions about OUR wedding while he is away and we can't have much contact. It is going to be frustrating. I'm really being thrown into the military life, no doubt about it.
Any suggestions of what I should do? Have any of you gone through an engagement with your significant other gone for a long time? It is going to be an interesting experience.


  1. Hey Cate,
    My Marine and I live three states away. I understand your frustration to want to wait, but my advice is don't and take lots of pictures and if you can get in touch with him ask his opinion on everything. If he's anything like mine, he just wants you to be happy and he'll be happy. Let me know if you need anything.

  2. Thanks, Jamie! I'm trying to not let it get me down too much. That's a great idea to send pictures. It is just so much easier to pick his brain when he is sitting next to me! Thanks for your help! I know he will love whatever I decide to do :)
