Going To The Chapel...

Monday, April 5, 2010
In just a few days I'll be walking down the aisle to meet my life partner in a beautiful ceremony for 40 at this location. I think maybe Bolaji and I already live together it hasn't really sunk in yet. At several times during the day we just turn to look at each other and say can you believe it? and then we just continue on doing whatever it is that we were doing before! This long weekend has been really good for us because during the week we both lead such busy lives and are on different sleep/rest/work cycles that we only get to spend minimal time catching up. But this long Easter weekend we were able to just sit together and be together.

As a bride I think I'm pretty calm. I'm excited to finally be reaching the end of this long process and officially be attached to my beau. I'm excited to hang out with my girlfriends, some of whom I haven't seen in 5 years!!! I'm excited that my siblings and I will finally get to spend some time together in the same space - we haven't ALL been in the same location at the same time in at least 3/4 years. I'm confirming all these things I suspected years ago: I'm just not a bride-y bride-y person. I really don't care how my bridesmaids do their hair (so long as its neat) or what shoes they wear, or whatever. I just want to plan a decent time with my loved ones and then get to spend forever with my Beau which seems to be the prize of this party anyhow.

Let me just say, I'm amazed at how much God loves me in sending this beautiful man my way, and putting love for me in his heart. My man loves me oh. Gosh. I'm a very lucky girl and everyone tells us this, that we are very lucky to have each other. Every single day since Bolaji and I started dating I find myself looking up to the heavens at some point and thanking God from the bottom of my heart for sending me this gem of a partner.

I'll try to blog before taking those steps down aisle but if i don't I'll do a nice recap of the beautiful day!

Congratulations am new to your blog..Am alittle confused though i was reading an old one and you said you are the first black person he dated? so is your finance white? or he only dated white females in the past? I can see you guys have a Great relationship seems sooo sweet and to know you guys are living together but remaining pure! that's awesome to see young adults be able to live according to your faith...I totally understand your reasoning behind you guys making that decision where you had to move in..Keep living pure and put God first, He's a rewarder to those who seek Him and keep his commandments... blessings

Aww, I'm soo happy for you. I'm at work and just finished reading your whole blog. Infact, the love you and Bolaji share reminds me of my hubby and I's. It had me in tears sometimes...well almost in tears. I pray that God will grant your union blessings, favor and fruit of the womb if you so desire.

Heya, found your blog a few days ago (I think you know that by now from my previous comments), and so though you and Bolaji are NOW married, congratulations all the same. I can smell the love that you guys have for each other from here and that is the kind of man I'm praying for....a man who at every waking moment will cause my heart to burst into songs of praise to the Most High God.
