the last few months

These last couple months of engagement have flown by but not without their own issues.

In the past two months, both Dan and I have backed into/pulled into another car. Dan’s car was broken into. Stolen: A really nice suitcase full of a bunch of junk on its way to Goodwill. Dan’s car’s transmission went out. We’ve been sick. We’ve been really tired. We went through some apartment moving drama. Dan started a new hospital rotation that has a highly ambiguous schedule… Different every day, no set end time at all. We’ve travelled all around the Midwest, it seems. We spent a hard five days apart. (Yes, we’re wimps, I know.) We’ve had fights. And it seems like every emotion I’ve felt has manifested itself in tears… 🙂

And I love this man and my God more than last month. I’m excited to live a life glorifying to God with Dan. I’m excited to make mistakes with him. I’m excited to go through challenges with him. I’m excited to struggle to live out what I know it means to be a good wife. And I’m excited to submit all of it… Money, time, struggles, decisions to God with Dan.

  1. My dear Natalie, I’m glad you love Dan and God more than last month !! I woke this morning thinking of you and the short time until your wedding. Now I know better how to pray for both of you. Your Mom and I are meeting today for lunch, to celebrate her birthday. I thank God every day for each one of my family members. Grandma M.

  2. This is a beautiful post, Natalie. You are living out your life and facing it all, both the good and the bad, with such a wonderful attitude. You and Dan are going to have the time of your life together! I can’t wait to see you both so very soon. We will be in prayer for these next few weeks!

  3. Bahaha. This post made me laugh, but only because I still remember what engagement is like. I wish we lived in the same town, my friend. But I’m excited to see you soon and to see you get married to such an awesome guy!
