So, how am I doing lately? Actually, I'm busy and a bit forgetful. There are a lot of things going on in my mind and I'm a bit more chaotic than people are used of me. I apologize.
I believe I promised some people a more detailed story about the 'how and what'. Well, let's just give you a short summery. Martin and I met in the summer of 1997 on a tiny campsite in the Netherlands. After a year in which we sporadically wrote each other letters (real ones, with post stamps!!) we met again in the summer of 1998 and from that day on we are in love. So, that's 8 years this summer. Time to get finally married, right? (It's about time haha). The first 5 years we spend travelling from the west to the east of NL and back, because we lived 145 km apart (measured in a straight line). But since 2003 we are living together and the weekly travelling is over. Of course we've discussed marriage quite often already, but it just never came to it. Martin even started joking we would probably just have to pick a date one day. How unromantic ;) So I decided it was time for some action. With easter we went back to 'our' campsite, had a nice walk and that day I asked Martin to marry me.
And now, we're preparing our wedding day, which will be in October. Yes, in October already. We thought six months would be enough to organise this day. And besides:
(icq with Lena, 8. May)
I: Aber, eigentlich bin ich froh das wir in Oktober heiraten, denn im Sommer gibt es fast keine a cappella Konzerte die mich ablenken ;)
lena: sehr cool, nach was du deine Pläne richtest - a-cappella-Konzerte *lach*
My friends are planning a bachelor party... of course. But I think they had some problems finding a date that suits us all.
(msn with Ria - 29. May)
Ria: I'm getting desperate of your agenda.
I: Oh ja? You should see my schedule for oct-nov-dec [...] But hey, "et hät noch immer jot jejange".
Ria: And that means??
I really can understand why people get desperate of me as well.... But well... et es, wie et es. And I am who I am.
Organising a wedding day is a lot of work, that's what everybody says. But actually it's not that hard at all. It's just how you deal with things. We're quite easy with a lot of things. And because we know each other for such a long time, we know exactly what we like. Yesterday we decided it was time to search for wedding rings. We visited the first jeweler we could find and within 45 minutes we were a lot poorer. It's so easy ;) (and the rings are so pretty!!!)
We also 'discussed' the topic honeymoon. But we both agreed we don't want our honeymoon in October, after the wedding. No, we're going on honeymoon BEFORE our wedding! :D This summer we are going to Malta!!!! We booked yesterday and we are looking forward to it so much! It'll be the first time we are going to fly, yeah really! And we've never been that far away from home.
