I love this photo of JP and I; we threw a birthday party for a fun, ridiculous, awesome friend at college, and this is about halfway into it.  We were sitting on the front porch with our friends, giggling at how wonderful life was and so happy and comfortable with each other.  Our first year living together was just amazing, such a huge step to be taking as a couple; at that point, we both knew we were going to be in it for the long haul, and the whole marriage thing was a matter of time.
Tomorrow, I'm marrying John Paul and I can't wait to take that next step with the man who's become so indispensable to my life.  We still feel so lucky to have found each other (what if we'd gone to different schools?  What if we had different math classes?), and to have grown together, rather than apart, these last six years.  I see pictures like this replicated in my daily life, these little moments where I find myself looking at him and unable to hold back a smile that we fall asleep next to each other at the end of the day.
Really, what more can I say about marrying John Paul?  He's always the person I want to see, and I get to  snuggle with him for the rest of my life.  I couldn't be happier or luckier.
Needless to say, I'll be a bit out of touch while we start this new chapter with the same name.  Abbi D will return April 2.
Don't worry, I'll post pictures of the dress then.  It's almost as amazing as my man.


  1. I'm so happy for you! Dance with joy!

  2. I feel so flattered!! You forgot to mention "awkward."
