MEP to MEC: One Month to Go

My heart is pounding as I type the title of today’s post –One Month to Go. My emotions have been so intense today, from nervousness about how many things that still have to be completed to straight giddiness to where I cannot sit still. I get all teary eyed whenever I imagine the moment when I put my dress on, when I see Jody for the first time, when we share our first dance or our last before we leave the reception for the rest of our lives.  I imagine these emotions will only continue to intensify over the next 31 sweetest days. I pray that the last month of our engagement is productive, joyful, and intentional as we prepare our hearts for marriage.
