14 Days to Go!!

Oh my God…  only 14 days to go!  Time sure does come up on you so very quickly.  It just seems like yesterday that we were looking at our special day being over a year away and now.. 14 days!

We’ve had our fun during this whole planning process.  What started as being a very small, intimate celebration with close friends and family has pretty much kept to that theme.  We’ve had to be disciplined and keep things under control.  I can certainly understand how many wedding budgets go absolutely crazy.  We’ve also dealt with having to adapt and change along the way.

Our first idea was that Michaela’s parents and brother would come to Vancouver from Romania, but that was quickly extinguished when the reality of how hard the travel would be on her parents.  Her brother remained committed, airline tickets were purchased and plans made.  Then, in late June we received word that her brother joined the ranks of the unemployed, yet another fallout from the most recent, world economic downturn.  He continued to plan to come to Canada though, but we knew that if he was to get a new job, that may change things as his new employer may not be as agreeable to him taking vacation so quickly into a new job.  Today we get the news that he is being offered a new job but is trying to negotiate coming to Canada for a week, as opposed to the planned two weeks.

Just goes to prove that one must remain adaptable and open to change.  There are things we are in control of, and things we are not.  The only thing I know for sure is I am with the woman of my dreams and I am so looking forward to spending my life with her… 14 days to go!
