My man

Can I just take a minute to brag on this guy?

picture: my 20th birthday night.
He sings to me.
He treats me well.
He is joyous.
He loves picking flowers out of McDonalds drive thru garden for me.
He drives me to Dairy Queen when I need it.
He buys me mason jars from yard sales.
He appreciates me.
He prays for me.
He buys me dollar store candy canes.
He appreciates my weird love of yellow, even though he totally doesn't get it.

But you know what?

I also deal with his love of vintage action figures.
The way he buys and resells like nobody's business.
How excited he is over a box of new baseball cards.
I appreciate his love of music.
The times we people watch in Walmart together.
I live for these kinds of moments with him.

I am going tomorrow to get fitted for my wedding dress, and while thinking about it tonight, it really overwhelmed me-- Holy cow. I am officially choosing THE DRESS I will be starting my forever with Caleb in. Its exciting, giddy, but extremely intimidating. I am going to be a wife. Will I measure up to the standard? All I can do is hope so, and try my hardest.

I just got a text from Caleb, telling me he is selling almost his entire collection of brand new blu-rays (which is a TON), to treat me to a honeymoon I deserve.

God, how did I get so lucky?
Praying you all have a fantastic week :)
