this evening i was sitting on the couch where 9 months and 12 days ago a boy and a girl held hands for the very first time.
it was a lot like most first hand holds go. you both know it's happening and you're both kind of nervous, but you pretend like it's totally cool. and you don't want to adjust or move your fingers because you're afraid they might take it as a rejection and let go. and both of your hands get a little sweaty. and you're not really paying attention to the movie that is playing because you're so consumed by the excitement that is the first hand hold.
and as you know, that hand hold between the boy and girl turned into love. and now they are 5 days away from becoming husband and wife.
husband and wife!
it's all still.... very............ intangible for me.
obviously it feels a lot closer than it did 6 months ago, but i still can't really comprehend it.
mostly i just am in awe how lucky i am.
to have him.
he's the coolest/funniest/handsomest/kindest/loving/goofiest/happiest person i know.
and not only do i get to have him as my very best friend, i get to have him as a husband for the rest of eternity!
and i just think that's the most rad thing ever.
i am madly in love with him.
and being madly in love with him makes me cry a little because i'm just so gosh darn happy.
these past 9 1/2 months have certainly been an adventure.
hard at times. very hard at times.
but they were wonderful.
and this saturday we begin a new adventure together.
and it will definitely be hard at times.
but i'm willing to bet
it will be even more wonderful.
