No Good Title Here

Mr. ST and I are very happy together.  Duh.  We're engaged - you'd guess we must be happy together.

We aren't getting married until 2012 - and the end of 2012 to boot.  I was a plannnnnning FREAK when we first got engaged. I immediately sat down with Mr. ST and a calendar and we began discussing dates.  I pushed for fall of 2011.  BUT since I had no job prospects and we just bought a house Mr.ST gently reminded me that 2011 would not work because our bank account was rather dry (stupid house - haha I kid, I kid house - love you).

 So I was momentarily crushed when I realized I would have to wait just a bit over two years for us to get married.  Howwwwwever, We are now at the 20-months-to-go-mark and I find myself feeling a bit overwhelmed about some of the DIY projects I plan on attempting. 

BUT the point of this whole post is to relish in the fact that I am, incandecently happy with Mr. ST.  It's the simple things: 
  • he makes me laugh.  After 6 years of being together, he still makes me laugh from the bottom of my belly. 
  • we work well together.  Chores are more my responsibility around the house because I don't work anywhere near as many hours, but we still do things together. 
  • We snuggle.  EVERY DAY.  We try to cuddle/snuggle together for at least a few minutes every single day. 
  • he seems honestly interested in my craft affair - he at least encourages me to make things for other people and to enter my crafts/things into contests and to sell them
  • we work on wedding related things together. At least once a week we try to iron out a few more details and work on our vision.
  • I stil love him.  LIKE CRAZY.  I look at him and still get butterflies.
  • I miss him when he works doubles/overnights.  I miss him for instance tonight.  I hate sleeping in the bed by myself. 
Well I've gushed enough.  I've smiled through most of this post too.  <3

I love this took a whole box of old school Winni the Pooh Valentines and wrote a reason why he loved me on each of them and hid them around the house for Valentine's day. I almost died.

And seriously, having a guy that supports your craft affair is a must! Otherwise they would probably be like "YOU SPENT HOW MUCH ON PAPER!?!?!" hahahah

How sweet! It's great to reflect on the simple things about Mr. ST that mean so much to you. Let them be a reminder if planning ever starts getting hectic. In the end, it's just about the two of you! :o)

What a great post, this one made me smile! I also love the pic of the two of you in this post, you look so pretty and both look so happy!!

I am stressing about my DIY crafts too. I am doing them to make my special day more personal and hope I am not going overboard and in turn overwhelming myself.
