a + j

10 May 2012
this is my 2nd-to-last post before i disappear for a while for the wedding and honeymoon, so i thought it would be the perfect time to reflect on my relationship and dedicate a post to us.


we've been together for 4 years, but sometimes it feels like so much longer because of how we've grown together and how much we've shared. and sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday we were flirting over beers on st. patrick's day.


i've truly found a partner in j -  it's a term we hold in high regard and work toward perfecting. i know we can face whatever life throws at us and for the first time in my life, i don't feel like i have to be strong all the time.


we recently went through marriage preparation and had married couples as our mentors for the day. one of the things our favorite couple shared with us has stuck with me and it's how i want to enter my marriage to j: always approach each other with kindness and understanding. so simple, but so powerful.

i love you, j, and can't wait to be mr. and mrs. smith!
