1,273 days down, 5 to go...

Lets start at the very beginning...

As I approach November 6th, I find myself thinking about all the events that have brought us to this point. I know you can never be completely prepared for marriage, but I feel like we have experienced so much together in the last 3 and 1/2 years that we are well-equipped to tackle life's triumphs and trials hand in hand. I thought I would share a brief (I could have included many more) picture recap of the last 3 and 1/2 years...

When Fletcher asked my mom's permission to marry me she gave him an index card. She had listed some of my traits/quirks and said if you can live with everything on this card you can marry her (she did it for my sisters too). Sometimes I feel like I need to get the index card back out and ask Fletcher if he needs to reread it. He is too sweet for me! But I love him for loving all the ridiculous things about me...
He is sensitive to the fact that I am sensitive...he is slow to anger and I am quick to get worked up about things...he keeps me from taking myself too seriously...he keeps me laughing when sometimes I feel like crying..he points our relationship towards the Lord and leads us in prayer together...he scratches my head every day...he knows to always get cheese dip at Mexican...he knows where to get coke icees...he always lets me pick the movies, even when it means paying almost $30 for us to see Toy Story 3...he loves kids...he loves my family...he loves his friends...and he loves me better than I could have ever asked. I am so thankful that he will be at the other end of the aisle when the music starts and the doors open on November 6th. When I get to the end of the aisle I will be the happiest girl in the USA.
