The Quick Lowdown

Definition of PREWIFE:
an engaged female who has not yet entered the realm of wifedom, specifically in the case of marriage.

Hello there!  : )  I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself.  Let’s see… I’m a foodie.  A journaler.  I’m the youngest child.  I’m a lyrics enthusiast.  A dandruff loather.  I’m a firm believer in pickles.  I’m a fan of musicals.  The most un-athletic person you’ve ever met– yet oddly competitive.  I’m a Christ-follower.  A boba snob.  An obsessive-compulsive eyeliner-smudge checker.  I’m an ENFP.  And this past spring, I became a prewife.

Definition of FUTHUB:
an engaged male who has not yet entered the realm of hubby-land but will do so at some point in the future.

In the spring of 2012, I’ll be marrying the man of my dreams.  My futhub.  He is a foodie as well.  He’s handsome and creative, sensitive and curious.  He asks good questions.  As much as he can, he tries to give others a voice.  He’s intentional.  And absolutely ridiculous.  Experiencing his gracious love is a tangible metaphor for me for how God loves this broken world.  He’s a romantic.  When we first started dating, he told me that he’d never told a girl he loved her before.  And that he wouldn’t until he met the woman he was going to marry.  The first time he told me he loved me was a split-second before he got down on one knee and popped the question.  He’s a class-act.

Anyhow, this little blog here is going to chronicle my life from now until the wedding.  My prewife life.  I was originally going to make the title wedding-related but when my creative juices ran out and I really thought about it… being engaged is about more than just planning a wedding.  (Although it’s so easy to start believing that that’s all it’s for).  I’m getting ready to become someone’s wife.  We’re going to be a unit– a family!  So if you read my posts, here’s what you’ll get: an honest take on all of my epiphanies, sorrows, and small victories as I learn more about how to do life with others, plan a wedding, love my futhubs selflessly, fail at all of the aformentioned things, and pick myself back up again.  Care to be a part of my not-always-that-interesting life?

…no?  Ah, well.  If not, thanks for stopping by anyway.  You stay classy.
