Exactly one month ago Saturday, I became engaged to Mr. RH. I truly cannot believe it's been only one month - it feels like we have lived several lifetimes since then.
Damnit, why am I cheesing so hard in this picture?!
As soon as I put that bling on my finger, I got advice from near and far and wide: "enjoy your engagement, it goes too fast, just savor the moment!"
As much as we've tried, the past month has been a heck of a time.
Mr. RH has been student teaching, working a part-time job, putting up with all my craziness (full-time job!), and trying to make a little time for me every day even though he never gets a minute to himself.
He never complains (well, much) (or unless I try to curb his Starbucks habit) and he is forever reassuring me that he wants nothing more than to marry me AND he even wants to help with plans for the wedding (when and where I want him to, of course).
In the past month, we've had our fair share of trials. Mr. RH's car broke down and ultimately bit the dust. We've had money woes and in-my-head woes. We both got a cold and I swear I'm still recovering. I've been anxious and clingy and try to spend most of my free time fretting over Mr. RH and wondering if I am enough for him.
On Saturday, we got to chill out for the evening with The Hunger Games DVD and yummy leftover pizza and soup. We got to talk and reconnect a little bit. It was simply wonderful. (Only 82 days until Mr. RH finishes student teaching for the semester.) (It seemed shorter when I didn't know the exact number.)
Needless to say, the past month (and two days!) have been less than carefree and easy... but I've got the right guy by my side. And that has made all the difference.
