3 more months

3 more months...
until i am a wife
and i have a husband
and we live together
and go on married dates
and cook dinner at home together
and watch movies in our living room
and go on long walks together
and talk about having babies
and love the heck out of each other
for the rest of our lives
and i absolutely can not wait

doula, doula

this book is incredible.
i began reading it about a month ago for my pregnancy and birth class at school
and now i can't put it down.
this book, along with the documentary the business of being born
(which i think everyone should watch)
made me finally realize what i am passionate about
and what i'm supposed to do with my life.
starting in july, i will begin my training to become a doula
and i absolutely can't wait.
it will take a while to complete,
and quite honestly sometimes i am scared out of my mind
but i am excited
and ready
and willing to do whatever i need to do
to make this happen.

a birthday

tomorrow is my birthday
i will be 22
and bennett is taking me on a surprise dinner
and we might even see a movie
and we're going to bake a cake.

at the moment i am sitting in my bed listening to the civil wars
and punch brothers
and midlake
and i am thinking about how in 3 and a half months
i will marry my best friend
and we will begin our lives together
as husband and wife.

i have lived 22 years as jenny humphrey
and i will live the next 22 as jenny foster
and the 22 after that
and the 22 after that...

i am the happiest i have ever been right now.
i could not be happier.
everything is quite alright.

i have a midterm tomorrow
and a photo assignment due
and i need to clean my room
and pick a caterer
and book one of the hotels for our honeymoon
and finish our honeymoon registry
and take my car in to be serviced
and go to the bank
and find out where the groomsmen can rent suits
and do our marriage counseling homework
and ten million other things

i hardly have time to breathe...
