A lovely love story

12 Sep

Two years ago tomorrow, Marshall and I finally met. One year ago tomorrow, we were out wildernessing it up for our campiversary. Tomorrow (tomorrow!) we’re recreating our first date – the condensed version anyway, our first date was something like 36 hours long – and then getting hitched!

Planning an elopement in 6.5 weeks was a breeze. The hardest part was deciding where to honeymoon after the funds to take one were gifted to us…and 3 days later all the arrangements have been made. Which is good, since we leave the day after tomorrow.

It still doesn’t feel like it’s really happening.

(Eleven years ago today, my husband-to-be lost a lot of fire brothers and sisters when our nation was struck by tragedy. Marshall is my hero, and I’m grateful for his service, his buddies who help keep him safe on the job, and all firefighters everywhere. My heart goes out to the families of the victims and the families of the men and women who have fought (and are fighting) these wars.)
