The Next Milestone

"In a week's time, we will be legally married. In a week's time, our lives will change forever."

When Inspector mentioned this to me, my heart beat in a rush. "Wow!". We both couldn't believe that in a week's time, we will profess our vows to each other in front of our families in JPN, for better and for worse, till death do us apart.

Lately, we've been so stressed out with all the planning and running around. It's been so hard trying to accomodate to our families' and our own wishes. We'd want something very simple yet memorable. They'd want it grand and oh, soooooo many traditions to follow. There were times when we've been so excited with the planning. There were times when we'd get so upset or annoyed with our families or with each other. There were times when we'd find it fun to follow the traditions (as long as it's rational to us!) and go furniture shopping for the house. There were times when we'd get so stressed out when there's just too many things to do but with so little time (you would too if the wedding's only 6 weeks away!). There were times when we'd just break down (I'd break into tears) and we'd want to "screw the wedding".

But when we tell each other these...

"I can't do this alone neither will I let you go through this alone".

"You'll never walk alone. We shall lean on one another from now onwards ok?".

"As long as you don't give up on yourself and on everything around you, I'll be your pillar always".

... It strengthens our love, our togetherness. If we could still be with each other despite all the hardships we've faced in the past, then we can make our future work together.

So yes, in a week's time, our lives will legally change forever. It is a scary thought, I must admit that. Nevertheless, we're both looking forward to that milestone in our relationship. We're definitely ready for this now, unlike the previous attempt. *smile* Well, if I'm feeling generous, I'll tell you some stories the next time. *Wink*

Have a nice weekend!!
