Things going on this weekend... so much love from all my people. Starting in a few hours we're setting up our reception venue, all the way down to the chair covers, and the Pittsburgh Cookie Table. 1200-ish cookies? Don't mind if I do.
Today's Friday Five is going to be a little different than the rest. No funnies, you'll have to find those elsewhere. Instead, I'm talking 5 relationship moments. The ones that stick out more than the rest. Other than that, just call me Mrs. Sass, and I'll catch y'all on the flip side. I probably won't make it back here until post honeymoon, or maybe even June, but, I'll be on Instagram, so follow me there.
one // On our third date Mr. Sass took me hiking to Ohiopyle, we hiked a few different trails, and even snapped this awkward picture of us. We grabbed a burger mid-day, and after he dropped me off, we were having so much fun that I just grabbed a shower and headed to his house for dinner. I was doing Whole 30 at the time, so he graciously listened to all the rules, cooked me dinner, and then asked me to be his girlfriend.
| side note | - Can we talk about how many things I'm wearing around my right wrist? Why was I doing this!? Also, why did I keep doing it for months following this picture!?
two // The first time he told me he loved me. Mr. Sass planned a winter camping trip, in the dead of December so I could test out my hiking gear for Kilimanjaro. He even convinced 2 of our friends they should join us. Day 1 was great, but day 2 was about as enjoyable as you would expect camping in December to be.
three // How about the time when less than a year into our relationship, we booked a trip to New Zealand further into the future than the amount of time we had been dating. And somehow it all worked fine, and I may have gotten a little hangry, but no one died.
four // We had had a long weekend planned for months. While I thought there was a chance he might propose this weekend, I definitely had my doubts, he just seemed like his normal self. Wasn't he supposed to be acting all nervous and weird? Instead we hopped out to a rock in front of a waterfall, and he got down on one knee. You can read the rest of our engagement story here.
five // I think sometimes in the day to day, and all the little things that make life keep spinning, like, what's for dinner, and put tissues on the grocery list, and mowing the grass, it can be easy to forget some of the things that you love most about this person. These qualities are not at the front of your mind. Then one thing happens and they're tossed back in front of you and you remember how great this person is and why it is you want to
Am I nervous about Saturday? Yes. I'm nervous we'll run out of booze, or cups, or ice, or that the weather will suck and rain all day. I'm nervous that the priest won't show, or a groomsman will be late, or my hair will look terrible. I'm nervous about a million things, but none of them are you. None of them are about committing in front of friends and family to spend my life with you. That doesn't make me nervous at all.
No questions - but leave me your best piece of marriage advice if you have any.
