LOL, the picture of us in 2005 makes me laugh - we look SO young, like babies or something ;) Nick was only 19! nineteen?! That seems so long ago.
6 years ago, I went to a poker game at a friend's house and had no idea that I'd meet the man I'd marry! In 2 days, we're saying our vows and starting our lives together as one. I can't even believe it, it feels so unreal! Did it feel this surreal to you? Have any day-before wedding tips to share? :)
September 25th will mark our 5th year of dating, and the first day of the start of our marriage. I look back and overwhelmed by grace. I love thinking about our stories of how the Lord brought us together. If I decided to go to a different college (which I almost did, had my dorm room and everything!) and he decided to stay in Missouri and become a cop (which he debated about!) - we would have never met! If I had started a year earlier, we wouldn't have had the same friends. There are so many "if" factors that it is without a doubt our Lord orchestrated our story in bringing us together.
This is the last post I'll post as a 'single lady' - Next time I write I will be married to my best friend! Thanks for sharing in the whole journey with us, from our engagement story to planning the wedding, and the scary time with my mom's cancer -- your support has meant so much and I feel like I want you all there to share in it with us. Anyway, I'll be having many friends here on the blog with guest posts in the coming days. It may be a little weird to say but I love you all and thank you for being here for us and for sharing in our journey.
xo. the soon to be mrs. keith
