Since I often get asked, “How is wedding planning going?” I thought I would go ahead and update everyone!
Wedding planning is not for the weak. It is hard. I have to remind myself constantly that everything will be great and to take a deep breath.
The good news list:
The “we are almost there, but not quite” list:
The Upcoming list:
Luke is planning on going back to school. He is looking at an accelerated nursing program. Which means that I will be the one working/ making money for the first year or so of our marriage. I am not at all worried about this, and feel pretty relaxed. He has been working these past couple of months and saving. My parents have kindly opened up the lower level of their home for us to be able to move into while Luke is going back to school. This will be a year or so of temporary living, but also will be so helpful during the first year that we are trying to get up on our feet.
The lower level is a walk out basement with a fireplace, big bedroom, living room, and we are looking to install a wet bar/ kitchenette. We both are excited about this because it gives us the opportunity to still be close to our family while Luke will be working hard to become a nurse, in hopes to one day be a nurse anesthetist (this could change as plans sometimes do).
* Quick little message…everyone’s life is different. I love how God gives us each individual stories. Moving back home is reminding us that life is not meant to be “cookie cutter” and there will be things that were not planned or expected, but it doesn’t mean it’s bad. I am excited about this season, and so proud of Luke for pursuing more education. I am also so thankful for my parents for their generosity in letting us rent the lower level. Just wanted to say this for anyone who may be in a season of transition, EMBRACE IT, learn from it, and be thankful! So much goodness can come from seasons like these.
Okay back to the to do list…
So what we have to do for the lower level:
