We are still waiting for our wedding photographs to come back, but I figured our four week, almost one month anniversary would be a good time as any to make this official: On July 3, I made my way down the aisle (probably a bit too quickly) to be pronounced man and wife with my best friend.
There aren’t too many moments in my life that I would consider as having bragging rights to. In fact, I’m generally late to any life experience (and those who know me best know that I hate being late). But having successfully dated and now married this one here, is perhaps one of my first accomplishments that I feel is worth bragging about. Don’t get me wrong, I 100% know that this was none of my doings, that God orchestrated all of this and has somehow managed to keep me from messing it up too badly and any bragging rights I have aren’t even mine. But marrying this guy, who started out as a complete stranger that I debated about not talking to, then turned into my best friend is not something I take lightly.
I’m not the gambling type, in fact, that only encounter I have had at a casino was when I attempted to meet my family for a meal at a restaurant in a casino and quickly was escorted out by security for being underage. My grandpa came to my rescue and after a brief chat with the bouncer, escorted me back in. But almost one month ago, I cashed in all my single chips and said I do to this one here. I feel like I’ve won the lottery whenever I remember that I am married to him. It still feels unreal and real all at the same time. Like nothing and everything has changed. But the one thing I know for sure is that I am the luckiest girl alive to be able to call him mine, forever.
As for the married life? I’m honestly just happy to say that we made it to the start of forever and can’t wait to see what kind of adventures we share together. Let the countdown begin for a crazy summer of traveling and working and still rocking this long distance relationship business.
