So usually on this website, I write about baseball or wrestling or superheroes or movies/tv shows. However, today is a different kind of post altogether. Today I get married. On this website, you have seen some of the processes that has lead to this day in articles by Lex2737. It has been an awesome journey that we’ve traveled to get to this day. And for us, the real journey is just beginning.
How It Started
From the day that we were introduced just a couple of years ago, something was different about my future bride. I’ve had many interactions with people over the years, part of the hazards of working retail and having an online presence. But something about our interaction was different. We were introduced on a Sunday and by that following Friday, we were set to go out for our first date. It may have seemed quick to have asked her out so soon after we met but like I said something was different about her and I wanted a chance to figure it out.
I tried to do something different than the traditional (cliché) movie and dinner first date. The plan was to take her to dinner first so we could talk and get a lot of the obligatory awkward questions out of the way. I like to talk, in case you haven’t deciphered that yet. So asking questions and having conversations was right in my wheelhouse. However, she is a lot quieter than I am but she was engaging with me in those awkward first conversations. Then we went mini-golfing until the sky opened up and we had to resort to the traditional dinner and a movie. (Well, I tried to be different.)
Marrying My Best Friend
Over the last two years, we have been nearly inseparable. We’ve spent so many days lost in conversation, truly getting to know the other inside and out. She’s listened to me rant about baseball and wrestling and superheroes. And I’ve listened to her discuss gardening and sewing and a ton of other crafty kinds of things. She has become my confidant, my safe space, my place of comfort, my best friend. I tell her everything and she tells me the same. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about her or what our lives will be like together. And today begins together forever.
Marrying the love of my life and my best friend doesn’t mean our life together won’t have challenges. It would nieve to think that, but what it means is that we will work together to tackle those challenges head-on and overcome them. Today begins the next phase in my life. And if I’m being honest, a phase that for a long time I didn’t think would happen until I met her two-plus years ago. So as we begin our new life today, I just wanna say I love you beautiful, and thank you for saying yes.
