Thinking for two

Disclaimer-- I am totally dorky.
I know next to nothing about blogging, facebook, twitter, music, art, design, hanging out at the Standard in LA, MARNI, or the Hills. Maybe I once knew a little about fashion from my days as a hairdresser. But now, in my mid-to-late-twenties (huh?) I am finally finishing my undergrad and have reverted back to the essentials of only wearing mascara and flavored lip gloss (for no one's benefit but my own), dressing for comfort (yikes), and my newest accessory, a rather sparkly peice of jewelry on the ring finger of my left hand.
Not to downplay the seriousness of what has happened. Making a decision to spend the rest of your life sharing everything with someone else is a big deal, way more significant than simply a flippant gesture or a fondness for precious metals. But ever since D and I got engaged (October 2nd, 2009), I find myself in a perpetual state of analysis. I guess I am practicing "thinking-for-two" (something an ex-boyfriend once said I was terrible at doing). Before I get any further, let me just say that I am absolutely in love with the man I am marrying. What I seem to lack, as far as I am concerned, is the selflessness I am convinced is inherent in all successful marriages. So that is what this blog is about. Wedding planning/design/execution stuff yes... learning how to un-dorkify myself before the big day (September 18, 2010) yes... But most importantly, learning how to be a 50% stakeholder in a marriage while giving 100% of myself.
