You want to do WHAT at your wedding?

If I ever left this town, I'd never settle down, I'd just be wanderin' around, If I ever left this town...

The questions come in rapid fire, but I'm ready to answer them. They see the ring and start. When's the date, how did it happen, do you have a DJ? Who's in the wedding? What are your colors?

My most favorite is, "What are you thinking?"

People know me I guess. They know how happy I am roaming, traveling, living. I guess it's hard for others to imagine me actually settling down.

Maybe it was because I used to tell Jon if he proposed I would kick him while he was down on one knee and run so far in the other direction he would never find me.

But now, I have this sparkly little thing around my finger.

This sparkly thing though doesn't mean I'm done running. Now I just get to make plans for two. Yes, it's harder. Yes, it means more luggage, but I'm pretty flexible. I'm willing to make a few changes to my life.

Sometimes I still wake up with my heart fluttering and that itchy feeling calling me to run, asking myself the same question everyone else has. I've even had a bag packed a few times, but something always feels a little off. Like I'm missing something. Someone.

And perhaps, this time if I ran, i'd be missing the biggest adventure of my life...

If I wasn't by your side, I'd never be satisfied, Nothin' would feel just right, If I wasn't by your side...'Cause I'm not easy to understand, But you know me like the back of your hand, I'm your girl and you're my man, And we're makin' plans, We can go on and on, Won't ever feel too long, I'll always call you home, And we'll go on and on...
