Well, we are just dwindling this list right on down! But crossing off #13 and #17 was very high in my priority ranking (regardless of where they fell on the list lol). As of yesterday, I am able to cross those two items off! I  married my best friend (#13) and I changed my last name (#17). YES! I am finally married to the man of my dreams, and I couldn’t be happier! For those of you who know us personally, as you know our original plan was to get married next May, in a destination wedding, and that is still our plan. But we couldn’t wait! This year has been such a positive year for us and we didn’t want to continue to live together without being married (we wanted to do things right), so we tied the knot! It couldn’t have been a more perfect day and we couldn’t have written it any better if someone asked us to.

Next year, instead of our wedding being a legal ceremony, it will be a symbolic ceremony. Nothing has changed; we will still have our bridal party, I will still wear my wedding dress, we will still get married on embarkation day-before our cruise ship sets sail, we will still have our wedding reception. Nothing has changed except for the fact that I will already have his last name while we celebrate all over again. So, I guess you would consider it a vow renewal.

I cannot believe we are finally at this stage in our lives. I have wanted nothing more than to spend the rest of my life with this man and now I am able to. Many people have told me that marriage is hard work, and I understand that, I really do. But I see us being in this for the long haul. I am not naive and I know we will have our ups and downs, because it’s natural. But this is my partner for life. We were made for each other and life wouldn’t be the same without him.
