It's Official! - 07/07/07 Wedding - Location TBA
Well, we have heard enough of the "so when are you going to get married?" bit and after sleeping on the idea for several months it seems that Saturday July 7, 2007 is going to be the date of Chris & Kristie's wedding - So save the date!
For me, the push over the edge was realizing that my grandmother's engagement ring had two rows of seven diamonds - it reminded me of how superstitious my Irish grandmother was and how happy she would be about getting married on such a good date. Now I just need to check with the astrologers and feng shui experts to let us know if it is really an auspicious day for us - JK!
It will be a destination wedding, so if you need to, start saving up now as all friends will be invited. Exactly where is still up in the air - I would really like Big Sur or Napa or The Greek Isles, but I really want my grandfather there so we might end up doing it in Miami Beach, Napes, Key West or maybe even some other Florida beach town. After the last time I brought my grandfather out to California in 2001 (the month before 9/11) he refuses to fly and since he is my only family left, I really need to have him there. His 90th Birthday is coming up next month on April 30th, so it would be really amazing for him to be there for me - he is not only my grandfather, but growing up in his house, he is like a father to me, and since my Mom and Grandmother have passed, he is also a close best friend - in fact, I am probably the only person he really confides in now, though he is pretty much an open book just like me...
Anyways, thanks to my lovely fiance for understanding the importance of this to me and thanks to those of you who were not overly pushy about setting the wedding date. As for the rest of you bridezilla's... well, I hope you are finally as happy as we are.
Love you baby - thanks for being you and loving me as much as I love you.
