Tis the season for weddings, including my own!
Getting married is a HUGE deal. Not just the event, but the commitment itself. I’m all like, “if you go before I do I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two”. But seriously.
My husband is truly the man I prayed for as a little girl. I told God, specifically, that I wanted a boy with blue eyes and dark hair who was fun and loved animals, especially cats, as much as I do. He possesses all these qualities.
Of course, there are added bonuses:
- Devout UK fan
He is also an unbelievable protector, who makes me feel safe no matter the situation.

The whole point of this post is to inform those reading this that it was hard work to get married! The planning was a bit stressful, but I’m talking about the time we took to get to know each other better in the months proceeding our marriage.
The first thing we did was attend a message series at our church called The Vow. This incredibly intimate sequence of both practical and biblical truth was extremely eye-opening. Even if you are not getting married, these messages are still relevant to every individual. Definitely a must watch!
The next step we took was marriage counseling. Although somewhat voluntary, it was a requirement set forth by our church. A six-session sit-down with a stranger probing into our love and sex lives may not sound appealing; however, it strangely became a bonding process for my husband and me. I will share more about this in my next post.
For now, I leave you the song played in our recessional. Sorry Blake Shelton – Dave Barnes did it best!
