Hitch me up, pardner



I don't know what I did to be so lucky, but I am.

J and I are getting married, after 8 years of being together. It didn't always feel so important to get married, it didn't seem like something that would change things, and I am not sure how it shifted but it did. She is the love of my life and makes me laugh every day. I want to be able to call her my wife, I want to know that when our kids are born we will know that there is that legal piece of paper saying that we choose to be together and that it was important enough to make it official in front of our families. So August 7th is the proposed date.

And... I got in to grad school, I start in January. That is amazing too.

What a day.

  2. Congrats on both great new adventures!

    For years I said I really didn't have any reason/desire to marry. The last year something has shifted in my thinking too and after 10 years together I really want to make it official. Too bad my state hasn't got on board yet. Make sure you share lots of pictures of your happy day. :)
