License to Wed

Yes, we got ours!

I stumbled upon this Norman Rockwell picture (I’m a fan, can you tell?) and I had to share it, especially since Brendon and I just got our marriage license! Ideally I would have shared this news with you all yesterday, immediately after returning from Access PEI with our papers in hand, but we had no internet service all weekend until just a few hours ago.

As Brendon and I sat in the office reading over and signing our affidavits, we shared nervous-excited-“ohmygosh” glances and smiles. This was yet another step bringing us closer to our wedding day, and a reminder of how real this all is…and how quickly it’s coming up!

My internal clock still thinks in California-weather-mode to determine what time of year it is, and PEI’s early spring weather (rainy this week) is throwing me off. I keep thinking I have months to go until the wedding when in reality, it is only 52 days away…that’s less than 2 months. Yikes! In my mind, May=summer temperatures, and therefore July=mid-summer. I am told that here, July=beginning of summer. Now can you understand my confusion and losing track of time? Haha.

Anyways, that’s all for now! I’m working on a few more posts with news/updates so you’ll hear from me soon!

    Oh Maria! My heart just did a giddy little flutter when I read this! I’m so excited for you two to get married. So glad you’re gonna be my sister so soon!
    Plus that is one of my favourite paintings! Were you also standing on your tippy toes to sign the license? I hope there wasn’t a cat in the office you signed it at though… the both of you would have ended up itching and sneezing like crazy… haha
