Marry Me

I'm writing this post a mere day before my wedding. Can you even believe it?

Today is going to be pretty busy. There are nails to be done, airport pick-ups to be arranged, missing sparkler packages to be hunted down, and hotels to be checked in to. I've got everything packed for my trip to the hotel tonight, and I'm really, really freaking excited. I'm planning on journaling tomorrow morning too, just so I can remember how I felt on the morning of our wedding.

This past week I've had three 'problems' weighing me down about our wedding. One: the weather, which is forecast to rain. Two: Our venue being sneaky with us. Three: Having a certain monthly visitor arrive on the big day. I'll admit, my first instinct was to panic about it.. but I'm okay. I've learned that whatever happens, it's still going to be okay. (I'm going to go ahead and assume that alternating from fits of extreme giddiness to bouts of gut-churning nervousness is a normal part of the whole process.)

It feels like this post is bringing closure. It's bringing closure to our entire engagement. All of the months of wishing, planning, budgeting.. that would eventually lead up to me being lucky enough to marry my best friend. While I could have dome some things differently, I have no regrets. Tomorrow is going to be amazing.

To my almost-husband,

I can't even begin to describe how much I am counting down the moments to be your wife. We've had ups, downs, in betweens, lows and incredible highs. We moved overseas together, we travelled our butts off, and we adopted our beautiful Oscar-kitty. We're building our dream home, and we're doing it all together. Thank you for being my rock, for being the logic to my emotion, the McDreamy to my Meredith. You're awesome.

This was us, in our first moments as boyfriend and girlfriend.
This was us, in our first moments as fiancé and fiancée.
I'm so excited to be back soon to show you us again, in our first moments as husband and wife.
