Can I get a hug?

You know what the best part of being engaged is? It isn’t the wedding we get to plan, the presents we register for or the congratulations from friends & family. It isn’t the honeymoon we are looking forward to or the fancy wedding dress I purchased.

The best part of being engaged is knowing that Mr.A and I have made a public committment that we are preparing to spend the rest of our lives as a team. It is the fact that starting on September 17, 2011, we will have made a promise to each other that we will be partners from then on, and will work hard to nurture our love and ensure our relationship endures.

Ok, ok. I know this all sounds kinda corny. But on days like today, when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed and act totally crabby and mean, it is really nice to know that no matter what, nothing I can ever do from now on will be a “game changer”. Mr.A is going to be my family! Not in the “Wow, he’s your brother?” way, but in the “There is nothing I can possibly do to make him stop loving me” way. For someone like me, who has a few insecurities (come on, don’t we all??) – this is kind of amazing.

Oh, and Mr.A? Even though you are now required to love me (ha!) I am sorry for being a jerkface this morning. Thank you very much for attempting to make me feel better. Next time, I will listen harder to what you are saying and instead of yelling, I will just ask for a hug if I need one. 🙂
