I seriously never thought this day would come.
In my “Sex Articles” I write about my perception of love and relationships. Those articles are somewhat personal to my love life where I share some of my romantic experiences and quarrels. I wrote an article about being broken-hearted, what I wanted in a man, and how finally came to experience true love with my, now, fiancée. I experienced all of this within a year. I went from ending a way too long situation; to dating a bunch of guys for no reason; to falling madly and insanely in love with a childhood friend I grew up with. I never in a million years thought it would be him. He has always been close my heart for 18 years of my life and yet, here he is. The man who I am going to devote my life to. Crazy huh?
Here is how I know we are part of God’s humor:
- We have nothing in common
- I love Target and he loves Wal-Mart
- He needs structure and I don’t get structured until I have to.
How did we make it this far? I ask myself that everyday and the only answer I come up with is by the grace of God because you better believe I drive him crazy and he drives me crazy. To no end. That is one of the things I love about him is that he gets under my skin in an annoying, irritating, and lovely way. I wouldn’t trade him for anything. He treats me like a queen. No, I mean like seriously. He does. The love this man has for me is so thick and so obvious that a blind man could see it. I waited all my life for someone to treat me and see me that way. Now I am going to have it for the rest of my life. What a blessing?!
Now I guess I am planning a wedding. We aren’t getting married until 2015 so I have some time but I know that I am not going to the biggest fan of this process. Or maybe I will. Who knows? I have never been “that girl” who has her entire wedding planned before she turns 10. I don’t even know what colors I want. My fiancée (so weird to say) is ready to get the ball rolling. I think we have plenty of time, we don’t have to really start planning until the beginning of 2014 (can you see the contrast that I was telling you about?). But to keep him sane enough from driving me insane, we are looking at some venues and brainstorming ideas now. I will keep you posted. Don’t be surprised if you get a venting blog post in your emails during this process.
I am elated, excited, nervous, and calm all at the same time. There was a time in my life where I was getting comfortable with never getting married because I was so turned off of love and relationships and didn’t want to put myself out there again. I am glad that I allowed God to turn my heart around and softened it for this wonderful creature of a man. I wish I could share with you our stories so you can really get a glimpse of why this such divine intervention and according to God’s plan. I will spare you all the boring details. I am going to be asking you guys for advice and tips on planning a wedding on a budget.
