17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

This may seem kind of funny, but almost from the very beginning I knew Hal was the one. This is weird, but the night before I met Hal I was hanging out with all of my sisters since one was leaving town the next morning, and I told her I felt like I would be getting married soon. (I was fully single at this point) How weird is that? I just kind of felt that it was coming, and low and behold, the next night I met my future husband.

It's funny, but I sent that picture that I posted in my last Wedding Wednesday post, the first picture that was taken of us, to my sister who hadn't met him and she will swear that she called her husband in when she saw it and told him that she thought we would get married.

There was a funny moment of when Hal told me that he loved me. He said "I really like you, like I love you as a friend. Yeah, like a really good friend. A really good friend. Ok, I love you." It took him 5 minutes of him telling me he loved me as a good friend and me laughing at him for him to actually come out and say it. That's his silly personality though, he says really dorky things, but they are so sweet and cute.  That night he after I dropped him off at his house he told his mom that she might have a son married in 2009. Which is funny because we totally got married in 2008.

So there was never really an "HOLY COW, HE'S THE ONE" moment, it was more of a as soon as we were together I just knew it was where I needed to be, and who I needed to be with, forever. It's like that quote that I posted here before, "Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else." That's more of how it was for us. From the moment we were together, which was never an official moment itself..It's pretty much since we met, we were together and both of us just knew.

Sometimes you just know. I knew my husband was the kind of guy I was looking to marry before we were even good friends, much less dating. And as I got to know him I prayed that he wouldn't only be the type, but the ONE! I got my wish!

It took me a little bit longer to realize that Matt was the one (really, it took me a mission and then some), but once I knew, I just really knew. And I also knew that it was necessary that we had waited as long as we did. Can't wait to see you guys at our reception! We should totally double sometime :)

Totally true. The very first picture I saw of Sam and Hal together (she emailed to me) I called Terry (my huzzy) into the room to look at the picture and I said, they are getting married. I just knew! It was like it was written across the picture, "MEANT TO BE!"
