going to the temple, and we're gonna get married.

well, it's the day before my wedding.

(aren't you glad?  now you can stop hearing about it)

i should be in bed.  (it's almost 1:00... shhhh, don't tell)
but i just had to write.

i sit here staring at my notebook that i've carried around with me for 6 straight months.  it's my wedding notebook.  most of the pages are looking a little frazzled with their frayed edges and folded down pages, scribbles and rips. 

i sit here staring at THE notebook and feel an overwhelming sense of........ joy.
the past 6 months were HARD.
but i had so much fun planning my wedding.  ahem... "our" wedding.
(i'm still working on that.)

at times i wanted to scream and felt like bridezilla, but this was absolutely a wonderful experience for me.
and now it's over.  and that makes me sad just a little bit.
but none of it has been exciting as getting to marry that boy i simply can't get enough of.

yesterday morning as i made my bi-weekly 1.5 hour drive to my internship i thought about how we were just 2 days away from becoming husband and wife.

and the thought of that just made me cry.
cry very very VERY happy tears.

and i felt peaceful.
and excited.
and so grateful.

that he is mine and i am his.

and tomorrow we will promise to always keep it that way.

if you happen to glance at the clock tomorrow and it's straight up noon (mountain standard time), you will know that we have been declared husband and wife.



*obviously i will be MIA for a good week or so here, but don't leave me yet!  after this is all over i will be back to blogging regularly and i have some treats for you!**
