"the sweetest story ever told"

Monday, April 8, 2013

I don't know if there is anyone in this whole entire world who thinks about the future as much as I do. I never wanted to be a hopeless romantic, but I'm afraid that I have surrendered. I, of course, dream of my future husband and think about him daily. I wonder who he is, if I know him, what he's doing at this exact moment. I think about planning my wedding- what girl doesn't think about that, right? Or maybe I'm just pathetic...
Either way, I love weddings. And thinking about my own is mind blowing- one day I WILL be having my very own wedding, being married to my very own man who I love more than anything in this world.
So I guess weddings are pretty important, and maybe that makes it okay to plan my own wedding when I'm only 17 years old.
barn wedding

love this cake

my obsession with mason jars...

cutest ever

mr. and mrs.
one day i'll have a mr. and be a mrs. :)

OBSESSED with this dress.
the lace,
the simplicity,
it's beautiful.

I must have lanterns


country kind of love

Obviously, I want a rustic wedding. A country wedding. I'm so simple, I want to live a simple life, I want a simple wedding with country music, mason jars, lanterns, candles.
It makes me giddy to look through all of those pictures and imagine myself and a mystery man in them, rather than strangers who look to be so in love. I'll have that one day. And it's going to be so worth the wait.
As great as all those plans are, and as much as I want them at my wedding, NONE of them matter nearly as much as this last one does.

I went through a time when I didn't want to be married in the temple. At all. I didn't have a testimony of temples, or even of the church. I wanted to get married on a beach. Sounds pretty great, I won't lie. No one can say they don't like the beach. But I've changed a lot through the past year or so. I finally got rid of the bad influence I had in my life, and I started over. I found truth again, I found happiness again. My testimony has never been stronger, I have never had a greater love for my Heavenly Father and I have never had more of the urge to live with Him again- to be eternally sealed to the man who will one day call me his lady, and to the little rugrats we will bring into this beautiful world. I'm so blessed to know the truth and to be able to marry in the temple. I strive to be worthy to be married in this holy place to my mister, and to be with him forever and always, and ALL eternity.

you can't say that this isn't a castle.
this is where true princes and princesses get married-
daughters and sons of a King.

Maybe I'm ridiculous. I'm 17 years old and I'm planning a wedding. And I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if all of these plans changed.
But I know that the last plan that I shared is the most important, and it will NOT change. I have lived my life WITHOUT the goal of being married in the temple, and it was the most unhappy time of my life. This church gives me true happiness and peace- feelings that I couldn't have without it.
I can't wait to fall in love and to have a cute little country reception...
and to get married in the Lord's house.

I hope y'all aren't too lovesick after reading this.
I promise that my post tomorrow will be a contrast to my past few.
Gotta keep it interesting. :)
have a fantastic evening, lovelies.
