The One That Began It All

23 Jan

I’m not gonna lie; I’m a hopeless romantic.  And I’ve been one pretty much ever since I popped outta the womb.  “Let me outta here, I just want to find my soulmate!” is probably what I was screaming as I made my way into the world.

Okay, that last part’s not true.  But here’s something true: I’ve found him.  I’ve found the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with.  He’s the real deal.  And he frigging popped outta nowhere.

Maybe in future posts I’ll elaborate on how exactly the love story between me and the futhubs (my shorthand for ‘future hubby’ : ) unfolded.  How we met by accident.  How I was not at all interested a romantic relationship… initially.  How I fully intended to set him up with one of my single girlfriends.  How I fell for him in spite of myself.  How he pursued me and put all of my fears to shame.  How we dated long distance for two years.  How he proposed and made me a prewife.

I will try fix youFor now, I just want to introduce myself.  I’m a sap.  I’m a story-teller (not always a good one, but I love stories).  I’m a prewife who’s getting married to the man of her dreams in just a few months.  And I’m new at this.  All of this– being engaged, planning a wedding, preparing for marriage.  It’s exhilarating and overwhelming, heart-warming and batshit crazy at times.  But this will be the place where I whisper all the crazy (and not-so-crazy) into the void.

So, welcome!  Nice to meet you.  And here we go!
