Ms. always and forever. I’ve been filling out every form as a Ms. since I was like 13 and realised a woman’s relationship to a man is disclosed in the titles of Miss and Mrs. while a man’s title does not reveal his marital status.
The honeymoon plans are coming along pretty well. We’ve booked accommodation in London (Marylebone) and Paris (Montmartre) and the Eurostar to get from one to the other. We still have to book accommodation in Positano and Berlin and the appropriate flights. Europe is amazing, I can’t wait.
I’m actually alright at saving money because I don’t enjoy shopping very much, I don’t have any sort of insurance premiums or a mortgage to pay, and I don’t drive (cars are a big financial burden). We cook meals at home 6 nights a week which saves us a bit of money, and we live in a modest apartment which is inexpensive to heat and cool. Neither of us use credit cards either. We’re having a simple wedding that won’t cost more than $10,000, and our honeymoon is shaping up to be pretty affordable as well.
I absolutely love cooking, it’s how I unwind after a day of working. I like finding a new recipe, putting on a news podcast in the kitchen, and cooking away. My mum has always been a creative cook. I grew up watching her spend the whole weekend making delicious jams, cakes, casseroles, etc. and now I’ve discovered the joy of it as well.
We are both tidy people, yep. I like cleaning every room… except the bathroom. That’s always a real chore.
I’ve answered this a few times, but I’ll keep it on my page this time, haha. We’re keeping our own surnames when we get married. Most of the married women in my parents’ circle of friends have kept their name (including my mama) and so it’s just normal to me. Jon’s always been cool with the idea.
We want to stay in the city for a while but we do have dreams of a move to the country one day. If we conceived in the next year we would probably stay in our current apartment for another year or so because it’s comfortable and a terrific location. It’s also close to hospitals, a short walk from a maternal health clinic, public library, and close to lots of parks and public transport which would be very handy for baby and I. Our current place only has one bedroom, but we want to co-sleep with our baby so that doesn’t matter. After that I really want to move to Yarraville. I just think it’s so family-friendly and trendy, but still affordable (for now). A country move would be the next logical step after that, but ya never know!
Yep, I’d love to share some photos of our wedding with people who come to this page.
