the end of the world?
I make myself a
my next bm?
no, silly friends.
The countdown leads to my biggest milestone yet:
It's the beginning of a new life for me.
And for Tanner!
We've known each other for some time.
|Us Graduation Day - 2006|
(Extremely flattering picture of me, I know :P)
And we've always had these commonalities:
1. An extreme love for FOOD.
Seriously, can't get enough of it.
Which is good and bad.
Actually, it's just plain good.
2. A knack for conversation.
We're both talkers.
All kinds of topics, shallow or deep, we talk it out.
Preferably over food. Hmm...
I make poop jokes, and he gets me.
Now that's the kinda love I'm looking for.
4. Athletic Things of Sorts, YES.
We strangely bond over long walks,
strenuous mountain bike rides,
and the ever so sweaty and spandex ridden racquetball match.
Confession: I have yet to beat him at racquetball, but it'll happen.
By golly, it'll happen!!!!
Now, Tanner & I haven't always shared a faith in Christ,
but after a year of us dating,
it became apparent that our relationship
was founded on something new,
something incredible and redeeming,
and that, my friends, is Jesus.
Sharing a foundational belief in God
and committing ourselves to live by His standards
is the sole reason (I believe) we made it
through 3.5 years of a distance relationship.
And moving forward into marriage,
I know that we'll rely on that same faith
and relationship with Christ to make it through
all of the craze-tastic adventures heading our way.
So, you beautiful readers out there...
What advice to you have for a nearly wed gal?
Any strange things I should know about before I get hitched?
Like in pregnancy, when no one tells you you'll poop on the delivery table?
Anything entertaining out there?
