So Saturday March 7 was me and Brent's one year wedding anniversary. We went to this cute little bed and breakfast in Pine. We had alot of fun just being together and being lazy. I wanted to do something special for Brent but did not want to spend a lot of money. So I decided that I would propose to him. I managed to get his ring away from him and then as he was lying in bed I walked over to him and asked him if he would be mine forever. I won’t lie I got teary eyed. He said yes and then he laughed at me. He said he did not expect me to do that.

We also thought it would be cute to go and do sealing on our anniversary. Well the temple was packed so we just went to a session. It was an awesome experience to be in the temple with him. I started thinking about that day and I cried in the temple.

So....many of you may not know this but getting married was terrifying for me. I was cool and calm the entire time we were engaged and was not worried much about my hair, dress or anything like that. Some may say I was opposite of bridezilla. So the day of the wedding I woke up and thought to myself "what the heck are you doing" well I brushed it off and started getting ready. Around 12 Brent came and picked me up to go to the temple. We signed all the paper work and then went our separate ways. I was in the bride’s room with my mom and I remember looking at myself then my mom and I lost it. I was crying snot dripping down my face big black eyes and begging my mom to not make me do it. I did not want to get married. My mom and all the temple workers in the bride’s room were a little confused. They were wiping my tears and asking me why i thought that. I told them I did not want to leave my mom all alone (my mom is divorced and I am the BIGGEST mamas girl) my mom laughed and said "well if you don’t want to I will go tell Brent and we can go home, but think if you would be happy without him." well I knew then that I wanted to get married. I went and met Brent and he could see that I had been crying. He asked "this is just one of those things that’s going to happen huh?" I said yes and we just sat there holding hands. I wish I could have known on that day that everything would be ok and it’s nothing to be scared of.

Now I have the best husband EVER. He is always there for me and I can’t imagine life or eternity for that matter without him. He is my better half and I love him!

  5. Hey i don't know you you don't know me, i was looking for a cousin, my last name is also Lewis so i saw your link on someones blog and clicked it hoping it would be her, (no luck) but i was reading your blog and was so so touched by this post, i had the same experience for the same reason when i got married 3 years ago. i did NOT want to leave my mom. (also divorced and i was the youngest, last to leave home, leaving her alone.) i was so scared to leave her plus we knew we were going to move. i thought that was so cute that you posted that. Random i know and sorry if you are creeped out. but i thought that was to crazy not to share. (even a little more creepy, i live in queen creek too and trying to find a beauty school to go to)

  6. Wow that was the cutest story ever! I am like tearing up right now. I love cute stories like that. I am so happy that your happy, hope thats not creepy but its just so darn cute.
    Oh yah, and the purposing adorable.

  7. Miranda, good story sharing. I actually felt the same way going into the bride room (my mom is divorced too and I'm a mama's girl). I am so happy we both got married to our better halves though. I can't live without Trenton :)
