Great Expectations: Marriage

For about 16 months, I've known that on December 13, 2014, I would have the amazing opportunity to marry the love of my life and my best friend...
I'll pause a moment for the necessary awwww...
Well, considering this opportunity only comes once, I really wanted to come up with a special blog post, dedicated to my lovely lady and our future together. Of course, this moment isn't as special for my readers, but maybe my kids will read this, one day... Who knows?!?
With each passing day, I became more concerned with what exactly this special post should entail, and I landed on an idea that is very anti-Tanner. Instead of writing a long, emotional love letter or something of that nature, I decided to make a list of my favorite on-screen relationships, from both television and film. The reason the idea is anti-Tanner boils down to the fact that I really don't enjoy love stories. I don't do chick flicks! I don't understand why every non-chick flick needs a love interest!! I just don't get it!!!
As I've tried to work on that list, for the past couple of months, I could not get excited about it, at all. I realized that I wasn't doing it to inform any readers about anything... I just needed something to write!
So, here I am, only a few days before my wedding, and I have no post about my wedding, and... I'm ok with that. You know, nothing else really matters at this point. Because...
I am getting married!!! And I am PUMPED!!!
I've been in love with fiancé for a long time, and we have shared so many special memories (many of which have shown up in my reviews). However, nothing could have prepared me for the sheer joy and excitement that is overwhelming me at this point. We aren't even married yet, and I already know that I love her more next week, and nothing else matters!
Also, I think I just figured out why I don't enjoy on-screen love stories...
Because nobody can beat OUR story
That's right... I'm marrying up... And there's nothing you can do about it!
