This weekend was probably the most relaxing, refreshing weekend that I have had in quite some time. I did not get on my computer at all until Sunday evening, I took a break from wedding planning until Sunday evening, I spent a lot of time reflecting on my relationship with Brian and God and I am so thankful for it.
Brian and I spent the weekend at the Our Lady of Fatima retreat center in Indianapolis with several other engaged couples on our Tobit Marriage Preparation Weekend Retreat.
When I found out that we had to go and that it would mean an entire weekend away from “work” I grew anxious. I had no idea what to expect, I had a million things on my to-do list, and I felt very overwhelmed.
Even on Friday, just before heading to the retreat center for the weekend I was having a full moment where I was trying to organize my thoughts, everything that needed to get done with my personal life, the wedding, and work and I just felt stuck.
This retreat could not have come at a better time.
Most of the time was spent with each other discussing our future. This was truly a weekend to focus on the actual marriage rather than the wedding. I so needed that, and this weekend allowed me to take a step back and remember all of the wonderful reasons why I wanted to commit my life to Brian in the first place.
It was beautiful!
We were also able to connect with quite a few of the other couples, and I can’t wait for these new friendships to blossom!
If you are Catholic and your church gives you the option to attend the Tobit retreat, I HIGHLY recommend it 🙂
I hope you all had an amazing weekend as well and are ready to conquer the week and any big challenges or events that you may have ahead of you!
