We are going to get married... finally!

So, as some of you already know T and I are planning to get married in 2007.  We have talked about it off and on over the past several years, but have never actually started any planning.  We figured what better way to celebrate our 10 year anniversary than getting hitched!  We are planning to do the dirty deed in Canada since that is where it is legal, and where I really would want to do it anyways.  I think part of the reason that I have been putting off getting married is because I really really really don't like the idea of having a public ceremony.  The idea of standing up in front of other people and talking about how much I love T makes me just a wee bit queasy.  I also am aware that although most of the people I know are supportive of my happiness, there are some that are still not in favour of same sex marriage.  I can respect that they feel that way, but I really don't want to have to worry about that on my wedding day.  I just want for it to be about us, and how we feel about each other... without all the stress and chaos of a big wedding.   We also have to worry about the fact that half of our family is in Canada and half of them are in the States.  It isn't really fair to only have it accessible to one side of the family.  So the obvious solution is to elope!  We are planning on getting married on our own, and then have 2 receptions.  One at the cottage, and one here in Atlanta.  I was thinking it would be really cool to have a barbecue at the cottage, and maybe finding a restaurant to do the Atlanta one at.... oh decisions, decisions!

For now all we know is that we are going to start planning for our elopement.  We went out ring shopping today.  All I really know is that I want a Sapphire in mine!  I just loves them blue stones!  I don't want anything too big or expensive because I think I would be too nervous to wear it.  The wedding band needs to be something that I can wear to work.  We went to a couple places today, and we are going to go to a few more tomorrow.  Wish us luck!

    Maybe one day I will forget the day I met you. Maybe one day I will forget every 'I love you', every 'I miss you', and every 'good night'. Maybe I…
