That is how long until I am a married woman.
I'm kinda freaking out here, people. But in a good way. It's like, this is something I have been waiting for and preparing for my ENTIRE life. And now it's only two weeks away. Two weeks until the rest of my life (the best part of my life) begins. Two weeks until forever. And I couldn't be more excited!
WARNING: Mushy, lovey stuff ahead... Can't say I didn't warn you.
Here are some of my thoughts, two weeks before my wedding day. I know someday I will be glad I wrote about this...
I feel so blessed for so many reasons. In two weeks, I get to be married to a wonderful man. A man who I love so incredibly much that it makes me cry happy tears. A man who loves me back more than I thought was humanly possible, more than I deserve. A man who finishes my sentences. I love thinking about all the funny little coincidences and happenstances that brought us together.. How everything just worked out perfectly with timing, how everything fell in to place, how easy it was to be together from the moment we met.. If you know our complete story, you probably can understand how crazy and perfect it was that we found each other (I'll save that story for another time). I can't help but to just KNOW that we were brought together for a very special reason, that we were meant to be, that God knew what He wanted and made it happen, even with all the hoops He had to jump through to do it.. All the random things He had to make happen in order for us to find each other. And He won. And so did we. :) I can't tell you how grateful I feel to have Jake in my life. He really is everything I've ever wanted! He understands me, knows everything about me, is very aware of my faults and shortcomings.. yet he loves me more than anyone else. He knows that I come with some baggage, yet he is anxious to take it off my hands. He knows my family isn't perfect, yet he loves them so much that he wants to be a part of them. He is a constant reminder that life is more than good - It's great! He's so perfect and humble and patient and loving... I really feel inadequate next to him! It truly is a humbling thing to know that an amazing man like him wants to give himself to me for eternity. I don't know how I got so lucky, but I did!
Two weeks, my friends, and this wonderful man will be all mine!
...The man who lets my little sisters hang on him at the dinner table and decorate his head with pink stuff, without even a peep!
He's a keeper for sure.
Oh, and if you ask me...
...I think we'll make some pretty cute kids someday.
