Last night I attended my 21 year old cousin Katie’s engagement party. She is engaged to the charming Joshua, who is of Greek and Italian heritage. Enough said. The night was romantic and safe to say we all left there all loved up. I also left there looking at my partner and wondering whether, he would ever ask the question which I would happily say “yes” to.
Now I know it would be a stereotype to say that getting engaged and then married is every girls/women’s dream and that life is all about falling in love; but this is how it is for me. Given yes we have to work to make money in order to survive this thing we call life… as well as save for events such as the ones mentioned above, but to me it is all about getting married, buying a house and starting a family. Nevermind the order that it happens in.
For my partner and I who are already living together and have been for going on three years, marriage would be the next step for us. Whether it be sooner or later who knows what our future holds, but attending a night such as an engagement party puts it all into perspective of what I want for myself, for us in the future.
I sometimes find myself jealous of those who are moving forward in life much faster than what I feel I am doing myself, but then I am reminded by those close to me that all good things take time and that I have to remember to stop and take in all the good things I have in life at present. So heres to the good things we all have going for us 🙂 !!
Stay tuned- J
