Remembering the day when my sweetie pie and I said “I Do.” I am so shocked that it was almost 2 years ago!! Aww, I am here printing out the remainder of our wedding portraits for our wedding photo album. I am so late in doing this, but it is going to be so beautiful, and already is. Our photographer took over 580 great photos, and I just finished perusing them all. I smiled so many times I cannot even count!
I texted my sweetie just now about how I missed being a bride, and he sent me a heart telling me that I was the best bride! Then, a kiss telling me that he loves me. Our marriage keeps getting sweeter and sweeter the longer we have been married, the more that we are around eachother and the more time that we spend together. I have thought that for the last month, and I am hopeful that the feeling will last. We will be 2 years strong on March 10, Lord willing.
These are all of the sweet, thoughtful congratulatory messages from after the wedding!

PTL Daniel…. It is indeed s beautiful day and a beautiful day to get married. This day has been ordained by God to change your life forever. You will never be the same. As you make this transition from being single to being unioned together with the woman that good has placed in your life, always remember God is first. Let all of your decisions reflect the influence of God. God put to two together and only God can separate you. You will be richly blessed and receive all that God had destined for you.Much love my brother…. ~Shawn Logan
Congratulations on your marriage… it is encouraging to see God’s faithfulness in your life 🙂 ~Joslyn Johnson
I’ve been waiting to blog like this, and just call boop my “husband” and ugh, it’s a great feeling! I told him I was more excited about the marriage and honeymoon than I was about the actual wedding!! For one, the marriage is what lasts, and the wedding is one day!! WE HONEYMOONED IN MYRTLE BEACH, SOUTH CAROLINA! Sweetie had never been to Myrtle Beach, if you can believe it! My family and I grew up taking trips to Myrtle Beach so it was a DELIGHT to see him there, happy and enjoying his first time on their beach. WOW, so much fun!!
We knew we wanted to do something small for the day after the wedding, like a short vacation since Daniel had to go back to work that mid-week. So, we took a short 3 day, 2 night trip to the beach! Let me tell you!! It was so amazing! We got to relax out on the shore, walk in the water and just enjoy each other! We had VALET PARKING the entire time we were there! I tell you, our brother CJ is the best– this was his wedding gift to us. Oh God is good! So, valet parking every day. Any time we wanted our vehicle, we just called the valet service and it was out back waiting for us! I felt like such a princess! Imagine waking up every day to this!
An entire kitchen, big refrigerator, stovetop, coffeemaker– dishwasher!! Washer & dryer!! Wooo!! I was so elated! We had a good time! The joy of the Lord, when he sets every thing in motion, there is nothing that you Will lack! We went to the grocery store to pick up some water and cold cuts for the cooler, and a beach chair for Daniel. We even stopped in one of the WHALES and EAGLES shops to purchase a set of sun shades! We were styling! Daniel had his cute straw hat and I brought my blue beach towel. We enjoyed hanging out and being newlyweds!!
It was so great riding along the strip, Ocean Blvd. I tweeted from Foursquare, how I was on the strip with my beloved. I felt like we were cruising! On Cloud 9! It was almost like were were in a drop top, cruising along the shore with the wind in our faces! HUMM!! I’m in love!! Nothing can stop us now, oh glory the JOY of the Lord is my strength, I feel like giving God glory. Thanks, Jesus! ❤
Our suite was glorious, balcony overlooking the ocean– we were on the 14th floor!! I took a photo from our balcony:
So, I wanted to brag on my sweetie some. This morning he brought me breakfast in bed! I couldn’t believe it! He mentioned something about it last night, but I didn’t believe him. And, this morning– I wake up to scents of a lovely breakfast made just for me! Just as I was waking, here comes baby walking in with a tray of grits, butter toast, turkey sausage, eggs and COFFEE! (He hates coffee, but he knows I love it and he made it just for me!! With milk and sugar too!!) My baby loves me!!! He made me smile so much!!
So, you won’t believe the time I had at my very first bridal shower. The girls at Church threw me one and I was so surprised. My face lit up with excitement, and I was slightly scared! Lol. There was a decorated chair at the front of the room with tissue paper and balloons hanging. I was like uh-oh, what on earth! I didn’t know what was going to happen, lol!
Nevertheless, the girls at the Church really looked out for me and hooked me up with a beautiful bridal shower. I got tonnnns of lingerie, and now I will not have to buy any for my wedding night. Just wow, very happy. We had a laughing good time. Such fun.
Thanks again to my church peeps! You guys are great! I say “bliss” because it’s almost my wedding day!! And, “bliss” because the girls in there were wild! I did not expect that from Church peeps, weeeheheheheheheeee! Whew, a few gag gifts that almost made me cry (laughing!). The girls in there were having a whooping good time. I was embarrassed, put on the spot, and even given a little married-folk wisdom. Wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Wowie, HOW on earth have I come across this blog?– http://womenlivingwell.org/. This blogger has every ideology on parenting, homemaking, and being a godly wife that I could have ever imagined. Of course, the Lord led me to it from Twitter (I am following all of my favorite things on there). If I did not know any better, I would think that I was reading posts that I had written myself.
I mean, look at this one on modesty: http://womenlivingwell.org/2012/02/my-views-on-modesty-wlww-link-up-party/ How many Americans in this society can say that modesty is a lifestyle, or even a concept that they embrace? I actually just began wearing skirts last year when I met my fiance. It is a practice that some women in the Pentecostal church believe in. I recall one time the Lord telling me personally, “be not zealous over much.” So, this told me that it was not a requirement of Christians (wearing skirts), but instead a sacrifice, and a service unto the Lord in order to honor Him with your whole body.
I do feel like this blog will be a favorite of mine. I mean, just her video post titles “How to Communicate Your Needs to Your Husband,” “Learning to Submit,” and “The Importance of Intimacy in Marriage,” have me drawn in and wanting more. Enjoy!
