It's been a tough tough year for us, and as we move forward I am getting a little anxious about our wedding. Not because of the wedding itself but because of all the things we have learned and grown from this past year. I feel like this is such a huge step, Marriage, the weird dorky couple is finally getting married, yep you heard it right, 10 days from now I will be dropping my last name and taking his.
I really haven't though much about the whole "marriage" aspect because I've been 100% dedicated to this relationship since he asked me to be his "girlfriend", over 7 years ago. From our first kiss, through everything and anything.
He's my best friend, he's mine.
Marriage doesn't change a whole lot for us, it doesn't change our dedication for one another, it doesn't change our house, it doesn't change our children.. I am convinced that no storm, no rain, and nothing can come between us. We have learned a lot, for this I am grateful for. To allow the past to be just that, the past, and move forth, and to show the world we've got this.
I do believe that marriage is important, it is a commitment that I have held dear to my heart for a very long time (well ok ever since I saw that beautiful bride ariel barbie doll in the store that my parents wouldn't let me have). This year had it's ups and downs, I've learned a lot, I've walked away with a lot. And it's time to take a deep breath and jump in with both feet.
So heck YEAH, I'm marrying my BEST BEST friend in 10 DAYS! :-) (almost 9 EEEK!)
I LOVE YOU RYAN!
