I am taking the VERY LONG road to the altar. I've had over six wedding dates to the same man, yes. We've been together so long that we feel married but without the "official" government doc. You see my FH has been battling cancer and each time we thought we were through that blasted cancer moved to another spot. Well THIS TIME he is two years in remission, recently back to work, and looking and feeling great!! His last test (Feb 2019) showed no presence of cancer so he can go about his life with glee. His next test is in six months. Pray for us!! Anyway, I said all that to say I am the old gal on the block here at WW. Ignore all of my previous wedding planning posted because this time around it will be quite different. You'll see. AND, hopefully, the last time round of planning and I am "officially" a MRS. Phew!!
