So, we are at 39 days til our wedding! UNREAL! Time has flown. I was thinking the other day how crazy it is that you can live SO many years of your life ONE way, and then in a DAY, everything is completely different. How do you prepare for that? We have no idea but have spent the last 3 months reading books on marriage, listening to sermons, and going to premarital counseling. We are SO excited. We know there will be hardships and that there is a LOT we still don't know about each other, but are just anxious to do life together. It cannot come soon enough. (Except for ALL the things that need to happen between now and then.)
God is going to really have to lead us in decisions about our future, jobs, where to live, etc...and we have NO doubt He will. But sooner would be nice =). We got our engagement pics taken by our wedding photographer, Miles Boyer, and were really happy how they turned out. One of our best friends, Maura Johnson is also helping us out in a million ways, with pictures and more. My mom is working her tail off back in Chicago, thinking of all the little details I seem to overlook. Having help from friends and family in all this is SUCH a blessing. I don't know how people do it all...the planning seems endless. It is really humbling seeing how many people are willing to help and want to bless us as we step into this new adventure. We just feel in awe and very thankful. Our cup is full, despite the times we get anxious about what it will all look like. God is good and faithful!
