>Today, 10/10/08, is one year from our wedding date. I know it seems far away, but everyone tells us it’ll fly by. During the summer months Emily and I really worked hard to get all of our plans done. We just have a few items to take care of before the big day. When this whole process started I wasn’t as excited as Emily. I know I’ve stated it before that I would be fine going to the courthouse and tying the knot. I know a bigger wedding is what Emily wants and deserves. We’ve gone through so much in the past three years that I now look forward to our big wedding day. I saw parts of a TV wedding the other day and it made me think of our day. I couldn’t help but be excited to see Emily in her beautiful wedding gown. In fact I feel a little emotional right now. I’m such a lucky man to have such a strong, beautiful, loving woman by my side. Emily, I hope to spend the rest of my life making you half as happy as you make me. I love you, and can’t wait till 10/10/09!
