but who's counting?


That's the number of calendars I have with a wedding countdown on them. One at work, two at home.

On any given day I can tell you exactly how many days are left until I marry my best friend. As the time dwindles down, I am feeling more at ease than ever. The stress from planning is turning into uncontrollable excitement. I've begun to let go of all of the details that I've been freaking out about and really just enjoying the end of my engagement. (It's about time!) Now that the playlist for the ceremony is finalized I sometimes find myself daydreaming about the moment I'll walk down the aisle and see Keith for the first time...oh how sweet it's going to be!!!

Saturday was my alterations appointment and it was such a surreal experience. As I stood there in my beautiful dress the feelings I felt left me speechless. I kept thinking "Oh my goodness...I am really getting married...oh holy cow!!!!" I feel so lucky to be marrying such an amazing man. I know that I probably sound like a broken record, but I really believe with all of my heart that God made Keith and I for each other. All of our past relationships happened with purpose to teach us things about ourselves and others. My relationship with KC is far from perfect, but it is completely beautiful. We get each other. We support each others dreams. And we love each other. And while our love is young, its the kind that is going to last a lifetime. There is a quote from The Notebook that reminds me so much of me and Keith.

The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever.
