In 100 days, it will be October 20th 2010. 10/20/2010. This will mark myself and Hawk's 6 yr anniversary. It is also my wedding day. I haven't been the typical bride, we've been engaged for over 5 years after all. Originally we were going to be married on St. Patrick's Day, 2007. We're both Irish and a little quirky, so why not? Ha I even bought a green dress. We were going to have bagpipers and lots of Guinness. But it didn't happen. In October of 2006 my Mom died suddenly/ It was a brain aneurysm. She wasn't even sick. . .
So I couldn't handle a wedding after that. And time flew, we were happy so a wedding didn't matter that much. It's just a piece of paper after all ;) That all changed though, when Hawk deployed to Iraq. We had just bought a house 4 months before he got his orders, and he left 3 months later. It was a yearlong deployment that essentially was make-us or break-us. It made us. Now that I'm older, and after all that we've been through, I really want to get married. It won't be anything fancy, because my family is pretty much non-existant and I am after all a full time student. But it will be MINE and that is all we want. We're celebrating US and I can't wait!
