Goin' to the chapel...
And we're gonna get maaaaaarried! Jesus, Mary & Josephine... I can't believe it is only three days until the BIG day. WOW. I feel like I've been preparing for this for almost nine months... oh wait, I have! Truth be told, I've been imagining it for longer than that. Shocking, I know. I'd say I knew I wanted to marry Matt about a year or so into our relationship. Once we got through college and went our separate ways, it became increasingly clear that we had something special. When he moved to Atlanta after about a year of doing long distance and things only got better, I really knew. I'd say he must've known too, or he wouldn't have moved. Not sure what took him so darn long to ask, but good things come to those who wait! I know we'll have a good life together. If there's one thing about us, it's that our love is very real. It's not all that exciting or romantic... it's just a real love that works on an every day basis. We argue and fight and get on each other's nerves sometimes, but we each love the other enough to just let it go when it doesn't matter, and we always apologize when we realize we've been a donkey (and sometimes when we might not even think we've been a donkey).
I am so excited to share this day with our family and friends. We're very blessed. There are some people that will be greatly missed, two in particular, but we both know our dads will be with us in heart, mind and spirit.
After the big day, we're off to paradise for our honeymoon! Ahhhh... white sand, aqua water and all the food and drink you can want.
I will, of course, post all the details upon our return!!
