Stay excited, Liora; but know how to channel it.
Two people can fall "in love" at first sight; I've met plenty of people who have experienced that. There's an energy - palpable energy - that is between them in that moment. They can see each other for a week, every day, multiple hours per day. The energy builds.
They can tie the knot after a week and maybe they will remain married and in love for their whole lives; but maybe it will not work, because they have not invested the time in thorough investigation of themselves, the other person, and their relationship, and they make a mistake which can hurt the other person, or they can make a mistaken assumption which drives them away from the other person.
However, if they remained in the relationship for, say, two years without committing to engagement, and then became engaged, there is a significantly higher chance that they'll stay together - they've "slowed down," against their urges, but through slowing down they experienced more of the other person's life, personality, etc., and learned more about themselves and the relationship.
So, too, with you and Orthodoxy. The faith won't make mistakes, but maybe some well-meaning parishioner or priest will, or maybe you will. It will be better for you to take the time and know the faith as well as you'd wish to know a potential mate, or a business partner with whom you are investing your life savings - experience the faith, read, attend, pray, and progress together toward the common goal (theosis, no?). Do this in a relationship - with the local parish, with the priest, with the parishioners, etc. While you may have the urge to convert in a month's time, stay the course - delaying your conversion doesn't indicate that you love the Lord less, but maybe, in the context, more. Form a plan with your priest and your husband and stick to it.
We'll be here to support you.
