Disclaimer: long caption below! September 1, 2018- you were a dream. From the moment I woke up, I just felt at peace. With expectations of having feelings of nervousness, anxiousness, etc. I was just at peace. I’ve honestly never felt a sense of calm in such an important part of life. And that is what @dami0nlee gives me. Knowing that at 5pm I would walk down the aisle and say yes to forever with the greatest gift that God has given me is something that even right now is hard for me to explain. I love this man more than words can tell but now i get to live my life showing it and telling him every day!
