So all of you already know I'm engaged. I'm still in shock about it I think. I'll look down and see this ring and think, "oh wow! Keith really wants to be with me forever!!" It really is an exciting feeling. I've got so many thoughts running through my head. Do I hyphenate my name? Do I become Anikka Michelle LaFontaine-Gillispie? Holy crap is that a long name. Do I become Anikka Michelle Gillispie or Anikka LaFontaine Gillispie? I really want to keep LaFontaine. Dad and I are the last ones. Unless dad knocks someone up, then the name dies with us. Then we have do decide on where to get married. We had decided to do a small wedding in Gatlinburg with just our parents. I LOVED this idea. Well, he talked to his mom and he has a lot of older relatives that really want to see him get married. So now we are talking about doing a wedding here. I did a small list of people that I had to invite. My list alone was about 50 people. His list will be even bigger. He has a big family. Mine is small but I have a lot of you that I consider family so that's why my list is so big. So I told him about having 50 people. He freaked. He said he would get so freaked out in front of that many people. Hmm, so the fun of a wedding begins....
On the bright side, MY RING IS SO WONDERFUL!!!
Ok so back to business. I think if we do get married here it will be at his family friend's house in Georgetown. He's got a big amount of land so we could do the wedding and the reception there. We had agreed to do the reception there anyway, so I guess we could just get married there too.
My fear is that this is going to turn into a big ordeal. I don't want a big ordeal. I just want to say my "I do's" and start spending forever with him!
I am so happy, so excited, and so scared all at the same time. This is so exciting and I'm so happy to have all of you to share it with. :)
