Feeling ready

This might make me sound a little crazy, but last year when I was in Cambodia

I had a wedding dress made! We were all visiting a tailor anyway to have a few things made (work pants, blouses, things like that) and so I brought in a picture of this one dress I had had my eye on for forever. We went to the market to buy fabric and in the end the whole dress (fabric + the seamstress’ time) ended up costing a total of $75! It was a crazy deal for a wedding dress, and she did an amazing job.

I’ve talked about my feelings on getting married before—specifically that Alan and I’d eventually get married when the time feels right—but it was only really recently that something clicked inside of me and all of a sudden I found myself feeling completely ready! It’s odd to feel this way after feeling like I could care less for so long, but exciting at the same time. We still have quite a ways to go before we actually get married, but I just thought I’d share how I’ve been feeling :).There’s a glimpse of the dress below, and—because I just couldn’t help it—here’s our reserved wedding domain name.
