Light at the End of the Tunnel

So, we're getting married in 133 days! It is such an exciting feeling to count down the days until I am a wife!

Wednesday we got our tattoos and they are pretty amazing. We went in thinking they would be fairly small and on one side of our bodies. Billy Joe told us that he would not be able to do the verse because the font was too small. We had decided that the verse was the most important part of the tattoo so we went big! I went first because we had a wedding planning meeting with CJ at 2:00. Man, it was painful! I freaked a little bit and almost fainted! After a few breaks, I decided that I was going to buck up and just finish. I'm sure it sounded like I was going into labor because I was screaming! :) Mr. Billy Joe was extremely patient with me and even took the time to pray with us as he was finishing my tattoo. He prayed for prosperity and a wonderful marriage. I don't think we could have asked for more. DJ, on the other hand, took it like a man and didn't take any breaks. They are a little shocking at first glance, but both beautiful representations of how we see our upcoming marriage.

CJ had everything basically planned out so we are seriously almost finished! Woo hoo! At this point, I could care less what kind of flower I will hold or what type of china we need for dinner. I just want to marry my man!

Also, I accepted a new position at Suntrust and it has been a really cool experience. I'm technically still training for the next week, a total of 3 exhausting weeks of policy, regulations and tests. We have health insurance. !!!!!!!!!! I couldn't ask for more. We have unbelievable benefits that I truly believe God has provided for us.

Honestly, every day it gets a little more difficult for DJ to go home. I just want to live together already. It gets so old sometimes. I want to wake up next to my husband and know that he will come back home that night. I am learning to be patient and enjoy everything that engagement offers. We are learning so much about each other. It is a cool thing to know that God has brought us together and he created us to love one another.

I will never get over that.
