I got it back! They finished it a day early, and when they called my fiance to let him know he ran right over to get it! Which is why he's a keeper, It was so nice to have it back, I only had it for about a day before turning it in, I had to look at pictures to remember what it looked like It feels so perfect, not too tight but not too loose.mary poppins|1458833714|4010384 said:Did you get your ring back, elizabethess? If so, are you happy with the way it fits now?
We just got a realtor last week, and are looking at a couple of houses on Saturday! But the search is pretty passive at this point. Not wanting to buy until we find something just right to live in for the forseeable future. The rough plan is he will move in with me and put his house on the market this summer, which is also our current time frame for getting married We're both feeling really ready to be married and have been discussing something quite small and intimate, or possibly even eloping, which really frees you from having to have a year-plus engagement. The actual date is still fuzzy, but June/July sounds about right? My work gets quiet mid-June through August.mary poppins|1458152498|4006201 said:When do you think you'll start looking for a new place? Do you have a wedding date or time estimate yet?
I am SO excited to have it back! I have been having fun getting to know its different moods in different lighting. Especially fond of the elevator at work, which causes lots of glittering.lmcriss|1458175229|4006433 said:So glad to hear that you won't be leaving us yet! I can't even begin to imagine how excited you must be to get your beautiful ring back!
I'm also so excited for what comes next for you! Have you talked about the wedding at all? When do you think you will start the moving in process? Also, I keep forgetting about your little one! How's he feeling about all of this? or is he too little to really understand?
It's so sweet that he's starting to plan how to combine your belongings and your lives Who's got the better stuff? What do you think you'll keep and get rid of? It's such a fun (and a little bit stressful) time, the whole moving in together period. I'm glad we did it early to be honest with you... I still get little butterflies when I look at our closet and it has both of our stuff plus some stuff that's ours together in it. I hope the same happens for you What's his story? I can't remember if you've mentioned it before or not?
I'm with Mary Poppins, that all sounds like quite the task, though very VERY exciting!! I'm also looking forward to hearing about what you decide for your wedding! Will your little one have a role or will he be with a family member during the ceremony?mary poppins|1459530842|4014220 said:Yay, you got your ring back and like the way it fits! It's hard to be separated from an e-ring, especially when it's new.
Wow, you are going to busy, busy during the next couple of months with moving and wedding planning. Small and intimate, and/or eloping leads to a lot of flexibility. Summer is only a short time away. Do you have anything in particular in mind yet - courthouse, small outdoor ceremony, a different city, state or country than where you live? So many options when you don't have a big wedding and can do things on shorter notice!

Well, it's been crazy, wow! We went hard at it the past month, and got pretty much everything ironed out! Here's what's settled so far:lmcriss|1459823321|4015521 said:I'm with Mary Poppins, that all sounds like quite the task, though very VERY exciting!!

Hey!lmcriss|1468635524|4055954 said:Hi lady! It's been awhile! Hope all is going well for you in your newly married life! For some reason I was thinking your wedding was in July instead of June... How did everything go? According to plan as hoped? How are you doing?
Hey!! It's so nice to hear from you! Your wedding sounds so beautiful rain and all Plus, isn't rain on your wedding day supposed to be good luck? Glad to know that all is well in your world elizabethesselizabethess|1476123555|4085364 said:Hey!
It's been lovely! Wedding was mid-June, everything pretty much went according to plan, except for the torrential rain! Bye bye garden wedding! But we just moved things inside the historic home we were at, my weather nerd fella had fun studying the projections and radar in order to make the call, and we got a cute shot outside in the rain huddled under a big umbrella I would not have done it a different way, a small wedding was perfect for us, and let us really prioritize where our budget was spent.
One thing of note: a small wedding, even as rigorously trimmed down as ours, is still is a pain and a half to plan. It doesn't matter if you have 15 people or 150, you're still having to make choices on everything. And sometimes non-traditional venue weddings have more moving pieces for the couple to manage, since there isn't a dedicated person there to oversee everything. The best money we spent was hiring a day-of-coordinator to just be point person and direct everyone and make sure things were running smoothly.
After the wedding, we did a mini-moon at a local hotel for the weekend, then shifted into high gear over the next 2 weeks moving the husband in. His house sold and closed at the end of June, and we left after that for a proper honeymoon and got some much needed R&R! Since then just enjoying being married, and when we have spare time we've been doing home improvement projects. We joke that we're nesting, getting ready for the winter
