Brian and I are getting married on September 16. For those of you not interested in mathing that out, it’s approximately 4.5 months  (or exactly 142 days) from today.

We had our engagement photos last weekend, and they were ridiculous,  just like us. For those of you not following on social media, here’s a sneak peek:

That guy right there? Is my favorite. And soon, he will upgrade from handsome boyfriend to handsome husband. Here’s why:

  • He makes me laugh. So much. If you can believe it, he’s actually way funnier than me. And he can keep me laughing all day long.
  • He keeps me grounded. I was out with some girlfriends last night and we were talking about how WHEEEEEE!!! Out of control we can sometimes be, and Brian can bring me right back down to earth when I need to be there. But he also holds on tight as I flutter free(ish) in the breeze. Never let go, Jack Brian. Never let go.
  • He’s so fucking smart. I learn something new every day. He also understands things about the world and can try to rationalize them for me when social injustices make me cry.
  • He’s so generous. He lets me warm my cold hands and feet with his human space heater body…at night. When he’s trying to go to sleep. And then he laughs with me (see the first bullet).

God, he’s the best.

  1. We had fun engagement photos too – I think my husband’s constant stand up comedy is the biggest reason why I love him so much. Well that and he’s adorable. 🙂 Congrats <3

  2. Adorable photos. Congratulations. My husband and I celebrate our 25th anniversary this year. Or as I like to say, we just bought our third mattress. One of the pieces of advice I would give is to be on the same page regarding finances. Money problems can be a big reason for marital discord. Communication, transparency, setting goals and budgeting don’t sound romantic but can go a long way toward creating wedded happiness. Can’t wait to see the wedding pics!

    1. Congratulations on 25 years! I’m actually an editor for financial services clients at my full-time job, so we are (and have always been) very blunt on money matters. You are totally right about financials being one of the most important things! And thank you!

  3. Congratulations!! I saw your pics last week, and I fell in love, too!
    Hubs and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in May – we are going to Minnesota to watch baseball and eat at every dive restaurant we can find.
    Wishing you many years of happiness and laughter.

  4. I love that you two are such a lovely match in so many ways, and that you both know you really, REALLY want this. I think you’ll do wonderfully 🙂 <3
