Love speaks volumes.

We went last weekend and had our engagement pictures taken by my good friend at my most favorite place in the world...

...so I thought I would share the few pictures I have been able to see so far.

And I shan't provide any captions because... well...

it speaks VOLUMES when the photographers can see (and mention more than once) the love between you and your fiance.  :)

The Future-Mrs. Wonderful

First off, let me start by saying:  I HATE THE NEW DASHBOARD.

Now that that is over... I need to blog about something super special:

to Mr. Wonderful

I want to make sure that I blog and keep this exciting time in our lives up to date because it's going to go by faster than I can imagine, and I don't want to forget anything!  So, my goal is going to be to document it all on here...

On April 21, 2012, Mr. Wonderful took me on what I thought was a run-of-the-mill trip to Botanical Gardens, just for a walk around in natural (cause we love to do things like that).

Instead, I was serenaded:

He sang me a super sweet song that his dad wrote and used to sing to he and his sister when they were little.  It was the first time he'd ever sang to me, and I was definitely getting teary-eyed... but it got even better when he asked me to remove my shoes.

"...remove my shoes??"

"Just do it, please," he said.

(and of course, I did)

Mr. Wonderful then did something I will never forget:
He washed my feet.
And told me that that was his action of submission to me.
(as with Jesus and his disciples)

And for his next act of wonderful-ness??
I wound up like this:

and then like this:

If you haven't gotten the picture, Mr. Wonderful was turning me into the future-Mrs. Wonderful...
I have no idea what sweet things he said to me.
All I remember is realizing what was going on and that he was telling me I had changed his life for the better... and thinking that I couldn't wait to be his wife.  :)

He had a good friend of mine there taking pictures, and they are the most precious, priceless, wonderful things.  I will cherish them everyday of my life... much like I will treasure him.

We're getting hitched on July 28, 2012.

Oh!!  I can't believe I almost forgot...

Here's my ring (and a few others from the surprise engagement party at the home of the friends responsible for introducing us):

This is my great-grandmother's ring.  :)

Have I mentioned....
I'm marrying my BEST FRIEND.  :)

...and I haven't stopped smiling since the day I met him.  :)
