Of course Meg and I saved a good bit of money when we started to live together. In fact we found a tiny house for sale on the Northwest side of Nashville and between us we could afford the down payment. It was a huge saving compared to what we were paying on rent. I had this one bedroom place that was costing me more in rent. We got a Nashville engagement photographer to take some pictures before we sent out the wedding invitations and then we had to put a deposit down on the venue where we are having the wedding. I have not decided which place we are going to take, because we have not got a firm date just yet. It seems as though the Hermitage hotel would be a good choice. I have sort of thought about not telling very many people about the wedding to be honest. It would be tempting to just call everyone from the airport and tell them that we had decided to run off and spend all of the money on a honeymoon in St Vincent or St Thomas or one of those tropical islands.
The wedding is not for me obviously. It is for my Mom and for Meg’s Mom. Meg is trying to act like it is not that big of a deal to her, but I am not really buying that. Of course it is supposed to be the most important day of a girl’s life and I have to try to do what I can to realize the fantasy. It is not as though there a big deal to be made out of blowing this, oh yeah that is not even true. I have to do what is possible to make the fantasy as close to the real thing as possible.
