Ohh my! The last time I posted something, we had just barely gotten engaged... now we are only FOUR days away from getting married! That's this week, people. I'm going to marry my best friend THIS WEEK!
So much has happened throughout our engagement. I have loved being engaged to my sweet Kelton and have also loved getting to call him my fiancé! What a gem that man is.
A lot of wedding/marriage shenanigans have been happening! In March, my sweet, SWEET family threw me a bridal shower in Arizona. I so appreciate everyone who came! I really do have the world's greatest family. They have been nothing short of amazing! I cannot thank them enough!
My awesome maid of honor threw me a bachelorette party! It was so fun to get together with some close friends and just be goofy! I don't get a whole lot of girl time anymore, so that was a fun thing to do! Brooklynn is the best for planning all of it and I had a great time!
After that trip to Arizona, we went back to Rexburg for a few weeks to finish up the semester. I really did have such a great semester! I'm so glad that I wasn't taking 18 credits again. Haha. Once we finished up with classes and work, we packed everything we own into our tiny car and headed to Utah! We will be living down there for the summer and I could not be more excited! We found an awesome place to live. It will be so fun to start our lives together there! I'm excited about not having to say goodbye to Kelton every night. That will be a treat!
Then we had our trip to Indiana! Can I just say... I LOVE that place. That move we had there a few years ago was really the best thing that could have every happened to me. I grew so much during those short years of living there. It really is the coolest thing to gain such close friends who I think of more as family. I got to have a bridal shower there and it was so beyond great! I really am so blessed and I wish I could fully express how grateful I am for the people in my life. Indiana has such a special place in my heart.
Even though there are SO MANY happy emotions, one thing that has been hard is doing all of these wedding things without my best friends. It's really tough to not have them here with me to experience all of this joy and happiness. I have had far too many meltdowns about it all... (Kelton is a trooper!) Also, DREW is on a mission. What is life? I am so sad he won't be there too. I really can't be too sad, though, because he is doing so well! I wouldn't want him to be anywhere else. It hurts my heart to know that that they won't be in the sealing room with me, but MAN, am I proud of them. Missions are amazing things and I'm grateful for their sacrifices and service.
I am so excited for these upcoming weeks!! I really feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Every single day I am more and more sure that he is the love of my life and the man I'm supposed to marry and get to spend eternity with. How lucky am I?! I'm in awe every day.
