I am recently engaged and just wanted to say hello. I've been lurking on the boards for a bit and have found them very informative and also entertaining. I am a bit of a late first-time bride as I am 38. He is 41 and never been married, either. Our date is March 2nd, and I have a feeling it will fly by in no time (especially since I'm about to head back into the classroom after a lovely-albeit, extremely hot--summer break). Luckily we are having a very small wedding with family only, so planning is going very well, so far--venue, some vendors, and the dresses are all set. Anyway, thanks for reading.
