Today's the Big Day

No, not that big day.

Today I finish the requirements for my masters degree in business administration. Although I won't be officially conferred with my degree for another four weeks, I'm done.

I know this is nothing for those bees who are finishing up a doctorate, but this is big for me. All those days of trying to simultaneously plan a wedding and somehow write a 50-page business plan while working 40 hours a week are over. If I do decide to go on and get another degree, I swear to you it will not be while going through another huge life event—so no kids or home buying at the same time as studying.

(I say that now, but knowing us Mr. Lemur and I will decide to move across the country or remodel a house while I'm writing my dissertation.)

While I'm excited to be done with school, this also marks less than a month till we get married—and as awesome as that is, it's also crazy overwhelming! In the next month and a half, I will:
  • Walk across the stage and receive my degree.
  • Get married!
  • Move to a new city 500+ miles from where I've ever lived before.
  • Start a new job, attend a new church, and make new friends (hopefully).
Whenever I get stressed (ahem, all the time...), Mr. Lemur tries to get me to focus on little steps. What do I need to get done now? What can I get done now? What can wait until later? What doesn't have to get done at all? 

So that's where we are right now. Little steps.

I'm really excited about getting into planning more little things for the wedding, and I can't wait to share them with you! It's going to be an exciting last four weeks.

Anyone else tackle more than one career/school/life milestones at once? Fellow May brides, what do you have left on your planning list? We're getting married next month!
