LJO to LJK: I’m Getting Married!!

My Wedding

The first time I saw Dave after three years apart, I stood outside the Syracuse airport and thought to myself, “These are the last few moments of my life before everything changes.” I knew he was the one, even then, and I knew that once we saw each other for the first time in three years, at the perfect time in both of our lives to enter into a new relationship, my life would never be the same. Now, a little over two years later, I can hardly believe that this Saturday, the man I stood outside the airport waiting for is going to become my husband. That same line keeps playing in my head–these are the last few days before everything changes, but again, in the best possible way. I know that marriage is going to turn my world as I know it upside down, and I know that this is going to be the biggest adventure of my life. I’m a little bit stressed out finishing up our wedding plans, and I’m a little bit nervous about how everything is going to come together this weekend, but most of all, I know I’m ready for this. We’re ready for this. I would be truly grateful for your prayers in these last few days of our engagement–for peace, the grace to focus on the sacrament we are going to receive, and for beautiful weather :)

Thank you, sweet friends, for following along with our planning journey and for all of your love and support along the way. I am taking off of blogging for the next three weeks or so, but I’ll be back at the end of May with a new husband, a new last name, and wedding, honeymoon, and marriage stories to share :) Much love to all!
