Whatever the case, I have noticed that in the last few weeks, I have been brazenly, unabashedly, unforgivingly obsessed with planning a wedding that would lottery winnings to afford. Seriously, my wedding board has more pins on it than any other board in my profile. And that includes THREE separate food boards.
Honestly, as previously stated, I've dreamed of my I-Do-Day as long as I can remember. Once upon a time, I even considered planning weddings as a career, so perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised by my recent antics. Even my wonderful boyfriend has expressed that he is feeling pressure from me to… *ahem* put a ring on it. Though I always try to remind him that I am the first to admit we're not ready for that commitment, I certainly understand his feelings based on the images he sees on the iPad in the lap next to him on the couch.

I've been spending time with a recently married friend lately, and she mentioned to me that even after her big day, she is still on Pinterest, pinning wedding stuff for the wedding her future daughter might have. This was extremely comforting to me, because it occurred to me that maybe I am just one of those women who really enjoys wedding stuff. As I said before, I am completely aware that I am not ready to get married yet. I am totally ready to throw the biggest party ever while wearing the most beautiful dress I can imagine, but I am level-headed enough to know the difference between the readiness for a wedding and the readiness for a marriage. And I am NOT ready for marriage.
So as much as I don't want to pressure my wonderful partner to make a commitment before he is ready, I am hoping that one day, when I have a real reason to be looking at wedding inspiration, he will be thankful that I've done some research ahead of time. And maybe I'll try harder to wait to look at all the shiny, pretty things, when he's not there to notice.
