Life has caught me and I have been so busy. I missed this blog so I decided to stop in and add a post. No story or tale came to mind, but I remembered this beautiful flower photo I took last month and decided to share it. Its become one of my favorites.
I’m counting down the days to my wedding! My love and I have set our date and ordered our invitations. It’s funny how much closer I feel like we have grown since he placed this ring on my finger and asked the question. I feel like we are more open with each other. The time we are forced to spend apart grows more and more unbearable.
We have started pre-marital counseling and have had a blast so far. It is such a wonderful process this marriage thing. I love it and I am thankful my soon-to-be-husband and I are both enjoying it as it brings us closer together. The coming weeks will bring our engagement shoot! What fun that will be!
Today’s photo challenge is green. I thought this picture captures green in all its joyful beauty in a soft, bright, cheery kind of way. This photo just brings a smile to my face, I hope it does for you as well. Enjoy!
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for them in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12
Yes, my fiancé and I are nineteen years old, and this Friday evening my dearest love proposed to me after he took me on a picnic by the river. I am truly excited and ever so blessed to be engaged to the most amazing man alive. There isn’t a soul on this beautiful Earth like him. Our plan in to be married in early August.
This engagement is a huge leap of faith for us. We have done nothing but pray about it for months and months, seek advising from one of our pastors, and budget, budget, budget! The two of us also went to our parents for advice, mine who support it fully, and my love’s who are a little less excited.
So why did we decide to go ahead and get married after I finish my first year of college and right before my fiancé starts his? Because we love each other. We are ready to promise our eternal love for each other in an everlasting vow before God. We don’t want to be across the state from one another at two separate universities. We want to experience life together young. Life is too short, we want forever together.
It will be hard, yes. It will be challenging knowing there are people, and a father, who don’t support our decision to wed so young, but our love is strong and our faith in God is stronger. I can’t wait to begin this journey through life with my best friend at my side.
If you have any advice for us, please feel free to share.
Today’s photo challenge is Rose. Spring is here and the weather is finally starting to show it.
