Vows- what do you say??

So I showed Kim our blog, she said I did a good job! :) We will see where she goes from here!! So we have about 42 days left until we get married. One thing that we decided to do with our wedding was write our own vows..but where do you even begin??

See the thing is, is I love Kim more than anything and given some time I could probably write over 500 things that I love and adore about her. However, I believe our guests dont want to sit through a 9 hour ceremony filled with mushy vows that are making them either throw up in their mouths or jealous that they dont have what we do. So how do you limit it?

Also, do I start from the time we met, or just leave it why I love her. Im thinking that maybe I should just start writing and then in a few days go back and read what I wrote and make changes and then continue the cycle until the day before the wedding.

The thing that makes me so nervous is because I know that Kim will read her vows first and they will be so beautiful!! Then I will go to read my vows and in my mind i will be thinking "Fuck, I should have done this diferently!!". Hmmm not sure what to do!!

I think today since it is freezing out and the roads are horrible which means I wont be going anywhere, I will spend most of my afternoon writting and scribbling out shit that I think is sweet until I look at it again and it sounds like something a 4th grader would say to their first girlfriend...whatever!

Law & Order SVU has a marathon on today and so far thats what I have spent my day doing, so I probably will continue until about 10 and then go to bed...without any vows!

You know what, no matter what you say to Kim she knows how damn lucky she is to have you. But you know what I would do ... I would sneak and read what she's going to say then write mine! Yeah buddy!

How exciting for you to be planning your wedding. Congrats to the both of you and I wish you many, many years of happiness.

You will probably write your vows and they will be all sweet and perfect, but then once you are standing up there looking into her eyes, you'll say exactly what comes to heart and forget what you wrote and wonder why you stressed over it. You will be fine. from what I have read so far in your blog, you can't do anything wrong with what you two have.

And welcome to my blog!!!
