Fiance for another year

Today marks our one year countdown till the wedding. Wow! One year. I feel like we got engaged last month and its been nine months already! I will still frequently look down at my engagement ring and become mesmerized by it. Mr. Milk catches me doing it too and laughs. I have no idea where the time has gone. Other than having a venue and church we've done nothing. Oh yeah and save the dates for those living further away. 

So many changes have happened in the last nine months though. Mr. Milk and I are finally in the same location, living together; I said goodbye to SF after 5 years (even tho I've already been back for a visit!); I finished with all the necessities of grad school and am preparing for the licensing exam; I have started a blog; AND we have started to plan our wedding.

I realize that I need to take more "times-out" from my regular routine and everyday ramblings to focus on the here and now. It's so easy to not pay attention to what we are actually experiencing don't you think? Whether its planning ahead, or thinking about yesterday, sometimes I just forget to enjoy what I'm going through right now. After all, a year will be here and gone in no time. I would like to be able to think back and recall this period in my life with fond memories, not a blur. Thankfully this blog will help!

Mr. Milk is working from home this morning. I woke up to find a note, propped up on his pillow, folded into a pyramid. I will not go into the details of the note (aside from one quote) and just say that it focused on this little landmark of ours, was sweet, touching, and I am a very lucky lady. His noted ended with "you are my perfect little bite" as I will frequently try to create perfect-little-bites of food while we are having dinner.

There are many changes and new experiences taking place at the moment, and although they can be overwhelming at times, they are also exciting. Have a good weekend everyone!
