Plan. Plan. Plan.

I can't believe May is already half way over. It feels like may has just passed so quickly! Drew and I were talking about this yesterday. To us, the days feel like weeks and the weeks feel like months, but when the month is over and we're looking back, it feels like it passed so quickly. Funny how that works.

Yes the countdown has begun. 92 days until the BEST DAY EVER! I know that sounds like so far away, but in reality, it is only 3 months. I am in school until July 22nd, so I have to do a lot of my planning over the phone or through email. We don't have a lot of the details figured out yet, but just this week, we really started planning. The Logan Temple is called and scheduled, we are figuring out places to do our receptions, we are talking about colors and who is wearing what, decorations, food, flowers, etc. I feel like I need to figure out a way to balance school, work and wedding planning. All I can seem to think about is my perfect day and being married to the perfect guy. All I want to do is plan. It makes the whole wedding seem more real. If you have any suggestions for me, let me know!

This weekend Drew and I went down to Utah for my cousin's wedding. While we were down there we went wedding dress shopping. On Friday, I didn't find anything really and I was getting really frustrated. We shopped from about 10 in the morning until 2:30 ish. We decided to call it a day. On Saturday, we went up to Salt Lake and went to a bridal shop at the Gateway mall. The very first dress I tried on was "the dress"! It is absolutely GORGEOUS! I don't even know how to explain it, but I love it! As nontraditional as it is, Drew came dress shopping with me and helped me pick it out. I wouldn't have it any other way. Also while we were down in Utah, we took our engagement pictures! Maria Wood took them. She is absolutely incredible! She took my senior pictures a couple years ago and ever since then it has been a fantasy of mine the she would shoot my wedding. It makes me SO happy that she can actually do it. We started our Photo Session at like 6pm and we were taking pictures for a couple hours. I've only seen a few of them but the ones I have seen look FANTASTIC! These are just a few of the ones I have seen:


This very bottom one was actually taken at the Harley Davidson shop. It was the coolest building built out of old rusted metal. They said we could take pictures there as long as we didn't get in their way. So while we were taking pictures there, they were riding their motorcycles all around and revving their engines. It was SO loud, but such a fun experience. I can't wait until we get to see the rest of the pictures! I absolutely love maria's work! She is also going to do our bridals and our pictures at the temple. I am so excited!

Life is Busy. Drew is working hard down in Inkom. He is doing Construction, working long hours and making good money. It is quite the blessing that he is able to have that job and earn that money. I am up here in Rexburg going to school. I am taking 13 credits and working 16 hours a week. Luckily, we get to spend the weekend with each other.It has been quite a challenge for us, being separated during the week so it makes it a bit more bearable being able to see each other on the weekends. God gives us trials and challenges to make us stronger right? Even though we don't fully understand why we need to go through certain challenges, God always knows. As hard as it is, I know if we have faith and trust in God, things will work out!

Have a great week!


Love,
Ashley (almost) Wright
