|So proud of my future husband|
Our last week of school was crazy— finals week is always stressful. Of course, on top of finals, we had cleaning and packing to do and I ended up getting sick (possibly from heat exhaustion). I also knew that Jason’s family was coming to town for his graduation, so I wanted to try to get everything done beforehand so I could spend time with them. Luckily, by the end of the week I was able to find time to relax and hang out with them.

Jason’s actual graduation was really great. His graduating class count was about 1500 students. When all of the graduates walked into the auditorium, it was impossible to find him. For the convocation, Jason was selected to read a poem that he wrote (yet, another reason for me to be proud) and he felt especially honored to be able to share it. The poem he chose was Ariel Perspective, which was about our hot air balloon ride on our engagement day— a personal favorite of mine, of course. After he read it, a woman behind me asked, "Is that your boyfriend?" and I answered, "He’s my fiancé" (cue big smile).

Our wedding is in about two weeks! Oh my goodness, I’m so excited! What am I most excited about? Yes, I look forward to the big party, the beautiful dress, and for my friends and family to be there, but what I’m most excited for is just knowing that Jason and I will be together for eternity. I couldn’t imagine my life without him, I mean, even spending these three weeks apart is pretty tough. I always wondered when I did eventually "fall in love," if I would know that I was truly in love. Seriously, how could I not know? Each day that I see Jason’s adorable freckled nose, I still get butterflies, even after almost two years of being together. And his smile just melts my heart.
