Can you believe it?? I hardly can and i'm actually living it! It's just so crazy to me to think that not even 2 years ago that i was posting these posts....
Only 7 weeks left...
The funny thing is that these past two years seem like they have just flown by, but whenever i think about everything that has happened and all the ways in which i have grown, it seems like he has been gone for forever.
It's crazy to me that it's so soon. I know that week will sneak up on me and i won't even know what hit me, but i can't wait!
Chris is so amazing and i don't know what i would do without him in my life!
I love you Chris and i'll see you in just a few short weeks!
i don't think that in the 8 years we have been friends that we've gone even a day without talking to each other and to have him leave for two years has been really different. However, the more i think about it, all the things and all of the ways i have grown up in the past two years, i couldn't have done with him here i don't think. I have learned so much about myself and made decisions on my own that i know i wouldn't have if he had been here...
Now don't get me wrong, once a week one-ended conversations have been such a blessing and really helpful, but i know it's been just the right dosage...
I can't wait to have him home!!!
It's amazing that we ended up where we are now! He's the most amazing person i've ever met, and i don't deserve him....but as long as he married me, i guess it's hard for me to say that anymore! I love him, he's my everything, and i'm so excited for the next million weeks to come!!!

i know i haven't done a blog post in forever, which is really bad since i need to keep this up, but life has been so crazy! who would've thought that planning a wedding (that only lasts on day, might i add) would take so much time and energy! not to mention everything i was doing to get finished up with school and graduated....thank goodness that's over!!
so the wedding is only 2 weeks away and i can't believe how fast time has flown...it's unbelievable how fast it's been! everything happens all at once! and we are so ready for it to happen, minus a few minor details of course...thank goodness for everyone who is involved with the wedding and keeps putting me at ease. i think i must keep convincing myself that there are things to stress over, but it never lasts too long. (chris would think differently i'm sure he.he)
i just needed to blog today to just reflect on my thoughts, i guess, about how preparing for a marriage is leagues beyond preparing for a wedding. it's amazing to me to think how long i've known chris and how many things we are still learning about, and i have a feeling it's going to take us at least a lifetime to figure it out. we do have eternity so i guess it's okay.
chris did find us a place to live, like a mentioned a couple months ago, and we're all moved in except for me and my clothes, which i guess i'll be alright with that for now. i know i need to take pictures of it, especially since i rearrange things in decor so often, but i have been a total slacker! we're just so excited for this wedding to be over and for us to start this crazy journey.
i know i'm speaking on behalf of someone else, but i can truly say how sincerely blessed we feel by all the love and generosity people have shown us during the past 6 months. i just hope that chris and i can reflect that in some small way to others as well. we are so happy and so ready! and i cannot wait to marry this man!
chris, the best is yet to be....
