addressing envelopes and issues

Today i will  be mailing off my invitations (after i go and buy some stamps) Hooray!!! (:

Addressing all the envelopes the other day made it feel very very real! (: (:
The day is coming up quick and now we are announcing to everyone that we are getting married! (Although a lot of the family already knows and have been BUGGING us, asking when they will be getting the invitation. hehe).

Its silly but i am very excited to drop all them in the mailbox!

On a different note : yesterday we had another session of pre-marital mentoring. I babysat all day yesterday so we didn't have our session until 8pm and i didn't get home until midnight!!! We went over the homework we did and talked about our expectation for marriage. Its soo amazing to be apart of this mentoring because it is bringing up subjects i wouldn't have even thought to talk about. Its allowing my Fiance and i to get to know each other on a very different level then we did before and it is truly preparing us to handle the inevitable situations that will come up in marriage.
Its nice to start addressing the issues now... as opposed to later on when we are in a heated argument. The mentoring enables us to take a look at our future spouse and say "oh... okay. .. so because of this in your past ... when i do that... you react in this way." It just gives us insight and knowledge of the person in a new and refreshing way. 
I am learning a lot, not only about my Fiance, but even about myself. (: 

I am soooo glad that we decided to do the pre-marital mentoring. The book we are working out of (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts by Les and Leslie Parrott) has a workbook with self-tests in them... and it is just soo helpful! (: I am excited for the next 9 weeks (its a total of 12 weeks) and to see how much more we will learn and grow! (: 

stamps, workbooks, love. - M
