On Christmas morning, it will already be one year since we got engaged. Guess what, folks. You’re going to have to wait even longer for our wedding. After serious consideration and much worrying, we’ve decided the date for our wedding.
After five months apart, in which Geoff and I talked online every day and slowly came to realize we didn’t want to live without each other, Geoff finally arrived back in Taiwan on March 4th, 2010. Then, after collecting massive amounts of paperwork and official stamps and signatures from government offices around the globe, we were legally married in Taiwan on March 4th, 2011. But with all the stress we’ve endured over the past year with applying for visas, moving to a new island, finding jobs and a place to live, our stress level was maxed out, not to mention the huge dent all of this put in our bank account. I still don’t have any decorations in my house and barely enough furniture to survive. My closet is nearly empty. Not a lot of extra money floating around.
As you may have guessed, March 4th is an important day to us. But March 4th, 2012 is going to come much to quickly for us to be able to afford to have the kind of wedding we’d really like. We could have it on another day, but we just don’t want to. March 4th is our day. So, to give us more time to save up and prepare, and to give our friends and family sufficient time to make their travel arrangements, we’re going to have our wedding on March 4th, 2013. It’s official. We’ve set a date. And now I feel like I can breathe and that my wedding won’t be tacky and ugly and rushed because I can take the time to make everything exactly the way I want it. Can’t wait to see you all there.
