On the subject of love (and marriage)

{All images culled from Le Love}

I've been thinking a lot about love and marriage recently. As I begin the planning process for my own wedding, I realize that not only am I excited to get married, I am ready.

Did I think back in March that I was ready to be married? No. To be honest, though I had found the love of my life (and yes, I know I'm incredibly lucky), the prospect of marriage scared me. What would happen if our love changed, or worse, if our love died?

But when the proposal happened, I accepted immediately with no hesitation. I had no doubt that my fiance was my soul mate. We fit together so perfectly, that I can't imagine my life without him. Not only do we love eachother but we're friends-- you know, the hangout kind.

Things will change in our relationship, but we've been through some big changes together already, and managed just fine. We're moving along the same path at the same speed. Maybe my life won't turn out exactly how I imagined it to be, but when does life ever do that?

I haven't given up my dreams. I have someone who encourages me to reach for them. We're growing up together.

I definitely feel that my guy and I have grown up together. I look back to four years ago when we just met, and we were such different people! I like us much better now :)

That's a beautiful way of putting it! I think your understanding of love and marriage is very grounded, but also so full of passion and devotion. Truly inspired!
