I keep looking down at my hand and I just cannot believe I get to marry him.
A few of your asked to hear how it happened. We had an appointment with Jenn Hopkins to have pictures taken for Christmas cards. Sure, it's a little unconventional to send out Christmas cards with your boyfriend but we have been dating for over 3 years so why the heck not? Plus, have you seen all of the pretty new Christmas cards on Minted and Tiny Prints? Since Monday was not a work holiday for most people, Todd complained a little about having to take half of the day off but I mean come on, pictures take 30 minutes!
I'm little awkward in front of the camera anyway (thankfully Jenn helped with that!) so when we first started taking pictures Todd was being his normal goofball self doing dorky prom poses. Next thing I know, he was doing something in his pocket and then he was down in the dirt. What was he doing down there? My thoughts went something like this, "He's going to get his jeans dirty and we just got here! Oh HA HA aren't you funny acting like you're proposing. REAL FUNNY TODD! OMG HE HAS A RING!" I think I just kept asking, "are you serious?"
Thankfully he was serious! (And yes, he did call my dad and step dad that morning to ask for their blessing. :)) Looking back at those pictures puts the biggest smile on my face.
The thought of planning a wedding is a little daunting and I'd skip it all and just go get married next weekend if I thought we could get away with it. I just cannot wait to marry him! I can't wait to introduce him to someone as my husband. And I can't wait to send a letter and put our last name on the return address. I just cannot believe I get to marry him. Forever! Ahhh!!
