It was also so exciting to have an actual discussion about our plans for marriage, rather than focusing on the expectation of an epic romantic gesture behind the decision. We talked about how we would like our wedding (and marriage) will be intentionally non-traditional, specifically with regards to embodying a more equal partnership rather than one that places the wife (i.e. me!) in a disempowered, "secondary" position and the husband in a position of economic or relational authority. We can and do see ourselves as equal partners which, to me, is very hopeful and exciting! We also briefly talked about outdoor weddings, bbq's, and summer celebrations (i.e. summer 2013, not this summer)... so stay tuned!
I can't wait to share more details with you all as they unfold! Thanks to everyone for putting up with our mushy nerdiness over the past few years, you can expect quite a bit more from here on in! ^_^
