Supermum's vow to write her wedding vows... before deadline
AS A journalist, I write to deadlines every day.
It is what most writers need to keep on writing.
If it wasn't for deadlines we would spend all day trolling Facebook, making coffee, eating items not on the recommended dietary guidelines and gossiping with co-workers.
Or maybe that's just me.
But rather than the normal daily writing deadlines I have for work, I have a different deadline looming. My wedding day.
There is just under a month til the day I get to walk down the aisle in a fancy white dress and say "I do" to my Superman.
Despite people asking me if I am starting to stress, I'm quite calm. The big day is pretty much organised already.
I should say my Superman is pretty much organised and I have followed along with his schedule and planning.
He even created a checklist for me to work on, with monthly deadlines. See, he knows me too well.
Lucky for me too, as I'm a "she'll be right" kind of girl, and if he wasn't so organised I probably would be starting to stress about now. He also knows how much I love to tick the boxes.
But there is one major thing still on my personal to-do list I haven't started yet.
Writing my vows.
I have some kind of writer's block when it comes to my declarations of love to my Superman.
It's not because I can't think of the right words. I can think of so many. It is just that the words don't seem good enough for what I am trying to say.
There is even more pressure because I know my Superman has written his already.
He has written them and is learning them off by heart.
I'm still googling for inspiration.
I've tried book references. I've tried song lyrics. I've tried simply writing down my feelings. None of it seems good enough.
And then yesterday my Superman said exactly what I was thinking. He said sometimes words were not enough.
Thinking over those lovely thoughts, and remembering how wonderful our relationship has already been so far, I've realised the real reason why I can't write those vows.
It is really because the deadline is not close enough.
