Just one more day and I’ll be his Mrs.!
I know, he looks younger than me. He’s not, ps. He just has impeccable skin (listen up kids, wear sunscreen now!). We’re going to grow old together. And age gracefully. *wink*
Today we meet with Ryan Ray for our official engagement session. Yes, that’s sorta what you have to do when you fly your photographer out from Dallas. Benjamin didn’t understand why we needed two sessions two days in a row so then I had to tell him I didn’t want all photos of me in a white dress displayed in frames throughout the house.
I told Benjamin about my hair and makeup and how I requested Lizzy to make me into an “Asian JLo with Victoria’s Secret model hair.”
“Oh wow, so you’re painting the barn!” he says.
“Honey, what?!” I laughed.
“I’m from the Midwest, painting barns is what we do.”
I got a charming boy from the Midwest with beautiful blue eyes, the best voice my ears have ever heard, and a comedic personality that keeps my belly laughing. He has never made me cry, he speaks and encourages me in ways no man has ever before, and he tells me over and over again to never change. We talk about bible study plans just the two of us, the books we’ll read, the places we’ll go, how we are going to build up His kingdom, and live one very, very good life together. Starting tomorrow.
