“I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” -Rita Rudner
Well, this is the last week of my single status… last week of my last name… last week of introducing Pete as my finance. Ah! I can’t believe this week is actually here! May 11, 2007 (at 6:05 in the morning!) Pete proposed to me and it’s been lots of planning ever since. But here I sit with most of it done – girlfriends coming tonight to help me finish the rest – and this Saturday I’ll be hitched!
It’s kind of bizarre to think that I’ll forever have a husband. Someone by my side through thick and thin. And like the above quote says, someone to always be around to annoy. 🙂
I guess I’ve always been such an independent person and didn’t really think of myself as “needing” someone to walk with me on my path through life. I knew I could hatchet my own way through if the brush got thick. I’d fend of the grizzly bears with my pure brute strength (putting that spinning-two-times-a-week to the test!) And I could scavenger for my own food when I got hungry.
But just recently, when a very dear family member fell very ill, I – for the first time – truly let myself “need” Pete. I let him see me scared. I let him take care of me. I let him carry me on what I thought was “my” path. And now I don’t see it at just my path or my journey anymore. I finally see it as ours. And at 6:30pm this Saturday it officially will be!
So, signing off… for the last time as a Storer!
