Six Months Have Come and Gone

So much has happened since March 14th, 2015. DJ and I have been on mini road trips, camping trips, attended family events, social gatherings with friends and much more. The last six months have been full of fun and adjustments but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m not great with words and don’t always know how to express myself to friends or family about how I feel about them and it’s hard at times even with DJ but I know that I am one lucky girl who has been so greatly blessed this year and in this marriage. DJ is more than just a blessing in my life, he is my strength, supporter, friend, protector, teacher, guider, of course my partner in crime and much more. DJ is going to make a wonderful father someday and I can’t wait for our children to learn what it means to be a strong and faithful Christian just like their father.

I won’t say that the last few months have been easy but I sure wouldn’t trade them for anything. Thank you for loving me DJ and for everything you have done and taught me. Looking forward to all of our future adventures together! Love you to the moon and beyond!

June 14th Will Be Three Months

It’s hard to believe that DJ and I have been married for almost three months. Our wedding day was an awesome whirlwind of fun and emotion. The honeymoon was perfectly relaxing and exciting being together for eight days without any other focuses. The two months that followed though have been crazy with work for both of us and is just starting to wind down. I may have over booked myself work wise. Oh well, lesson learned. I was nervous about living with someone after not really having a roommate since University and I won’t tell you how long ago that was. As it turns out having your best friend and partner in life as your roommate is the best thing ever. I was so sad and didn’t sleep much the first few work trips we were apart, not that I didn’t miss DJ the rest of the time but it only reaffirmed for me that I had made the right choice and that God had given me the perfect match. The next part of our journey is only beginning and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us. Hoping and looking forward to adding some new tools to our tool belt in and outside of the church family.

The wait is driving me nuts!

We are ten days away from the big day and time seems to be going by so slowly. Which if any of you know me at all is driving me nuts. The last few things we need to finalize can’t be done until a few days before the wedding so there’s nothing to do right now but work and wait which neither seems to be fun at the moment :) I am so excited to marry my best friend and be walking next to him in our marriage but I don’t want to wait another ten days for it! I WANT IT NOW! (said in a very whinny tantrum voice). I can’t express how excited I am for forever with DJ and to discover what God has planned for our lives together.

20 Days

With only 20 days left to go and we are down to the very last details. I am so excited to see everyone at the ceremony and reception and share with you all how happy DJ and I are. In the 16 months that we have been together we have faced ups and downs and some were very overwhelming and might I just say I definitely didn’t handle them well but every step of the way we had each other and knew we were on the same side (had to be reminded of that a few times a long the way but I knew it was true in my heart). I told DJ the other night that for so long I yearned to be a mom because I wanted to love someone so completely and know that love in return but now that I have met the man that God had planned for me that yearning is fulfilled, which is so amazing. Don’t get me wrong I still so completely want to be a mom and share that with DJ but I don’t feel like I’m missing anything anymore or that I’m playing catch up to friends who have children. I feel that when the time is right we will have children and it will be more wonderful than I could imagine. I am so blessed to have someone who loves me so completely as DJ does, who supports me but at the same times doesn’t put up with my ridiculousness and calls me on it. God has been showing me more and more as we move closer to the wedding that DJ is the absolutely right person for me and that I need to always remember that. Love you babes! xo

Five Saturdays and It’s the 14th!

In only five Saturdays I will be walking down the aisle with my dad to the man of my dreams. It’s so amazing that a year has almost come and gone since DJ proposed and that we are so close to our wedding day. The gifts are wrapped, decorations almost done, wedding dress is hanging in the closet and yet there is still lots to be done. I have to say that DJ and I are very blessed to have friends and family who are supporting and helping us along this wonderful journey! Thank you to all of you that have helped or been praying for us! We really appreciate it.

So excited!

The last few weeks have been full of planning, organizing and buying wonderful things for the wedding! I can’t wait to share with you all our big day and the commitment that we are making to each other. Please pray for lots of sun and warmth on the 14th as we would like to do pictures outside! Hope you all will have safe travels and lots of energy to dance the night away with us! 46 day until I become a Mrs and make the biggest commitment of my life!! Can’t wait!

67 Days

It’s mind blowing to think that in 67 days I will get to say “I do” in front of our friends and family to the most wonderful man and best friend a girl could ask for. When we first picked out date I was excited because it was so cute and just the right amount of nerdy-ness (totally us) but yet at the same time I was a little saddened as it was a full year away and that meant “patiently” waiting to have forever with DJ. As many of you know I’m not a patient person when I am very excited about something so it wasn’t going to be an easy to wait. All that said I can’t believe that almost ten months have gone by and that we are in the last stretch. There is so much to do still but it will be fun and we have some amazing people in our lives who are helping us out! Thank you to everyone for all the support and help during this time! It is going to be one awesome celebration!

Less Than 4 Months To Go!!!

I realized today that in less than 4 months I will become a Mrs. It’s kind of crazy how fast time has actually flown by since DJ proposed. Looking back on the last 8 months I am blown away by everything that has happened yet it makes me really excited to see how fast the next months will go by. I can’t wait to walk down the aisle with my Dad to the man who makes me smile each and every day.

Only 118 days left to go!

Boldt Castle and 8 Months To Go!

Yesterday DJ planned a special date day for us. We had been so busy the last few weeks that we were in need of an adventure day. It all started off with breakfast at this cute little bakery/chocolate shop in Alexandria Bay followed by a quick drive to a surprise location. We did however end up a little turned around (silly GPS lol) and drove right past the surprise but found the Thousand Island Winery instead, which resulted in a wonderful wine tasting and the discovery of five wines that we both liked. Then we were off to the surprise location-the Aqua Zoo!!! It was a great surprise because I love aquariums. We saw some really cool sharks, fish and reptiles; even ones that glowed and others that were tattooed. After spending some time there we headed back to Alexandria Bay for ice cream and a stroll and another surprise-a boat tour with a visit to Heart Island home of Boldt Castle. It was beautiful and very peaceful. Because it was such a romantic place and for the cheesiness of it, I had DJ make a heart around our two national flags that were flying on Heart Island! 😀 I guess we were meant to be 😉

Nine Months Away!

It’s been three glorious months since DJ proposed and as each day passes I get more and more excited for the big day. There are no words to describe how excited I am because I have never felt like this … Continue reading
