New York City — oh, how I love thee. This city’s one of the most favourite places I’ll ever visit because there’s nowhere else quite like it (as far as I know). The feeling that you’ve visited five different cities in one day, the fun of discovering something new-to-you while being a tourist at the same time, the grandiose architecture, the buzz, Central Park being smack-dab in the middle of it all… There’s something for everyone and the chance of being bored is as slim as they come.
Being engaged and being engaged-to-be-married are two totally different things. When Tim and I first got engaged I felt elated, warm, fuzzy and way up high (on my engagement cloud – ain’t nobody gonna bring me down!). We weren’t thinking about the logistics of planning a wedding, just how we were so happy about the jump we took over the Pond of Next Steps in our relationship. I think I could have stayed engaged forever, but that’s not why Tim proposed, now, is it?
It’s that time of year, people! CHRISTMASTIME! Every year since I can remember my family and I have piled into my dad’s truck and gone to the tree lot to pick out a Christmas tree. Boney M. and Charlie Brown are played on the way there, and candy canes are eaten on the way home (while eyeing the tree to make sure it doesn’t fall off the truck).
As I type this, I’m watching Home Alone 2. Which is weird because it still feels like September. And anyone who knows me even a little bit knows I don’t officially start doing anything Christmas-related until November 1, so watching this movie actually makes sense because, in the real world, it’s almost December.
