We Did It

Eli and I got married...almost a week ago. October 18, 2008. And I am so very proud to be the Mrs. Walker!!!!

While I am sure that this comes and a surprise to most, it was something that we have been thinking about and contemplating since we found out that I was pregnant. We have known for quite some time (not long after getting together) that we wanted to marry each other, have a family, and spend our lives together. While we would have not gotten married so soon, we had many things other than ourselves to think about. I would have been alright having a baby out of wedlock, but it wasn't my first choice or how I had "planned" it. I wouldn't change getting pregnant for the world, or anything else for that matter.

So after many discussions, we decided it was time...our time. And it just so happened that our "special" day, the 18th, was right around the corner. The ceremony was very simple, but perfect for us. We had our parents and our sisters there and then went to spend the rest of the weekend in California as a mini honeymoon. I was so excited, so happy. I couldn't stop smiling and still can't. I feel so complete. I love catching a glimpse of his hand and seeing his wedding band. I love everything about it and all the feelings. We will still be having our wedding July 18. So we will have two very special days to celebrate.

The kids were beyond excited when we told them what we did. Swae can't get over having a "step-mom" and proudly tells people all about it. Even while using her spelling words in a sentence, she is sure to bring it up. It is cute.

So there you have it. I am a married woman. CRAZY!! I went today and got my name changed officially and everything. Such an incredible, indescribable feeling. I couldn't be more happy - a fabulous husband, two kiddos, and a bun in the over. So much to look forward to!
