Repost from my old blog

I just happened upon this old post from my pre-wedding blog. I thought it was perfect for how I've been feeling lately.

How did I get so lucky? - Ty

While Ty is slaving away at school all day (he has super long days--from start to finish to try to get everything done that he needs to do, Ty's days usually run from about 5:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. He is a champion.), I am blogging about him. I started this post last night but then I got too tired to finish (it was probably 2 a.m.) and I went to bed. I was just telling my friend Christina this morning that I felt like a lazy house cat. And after the breakfast I had this morning of yogurt, fiber-one, strawberries...and a bunch of baked cheetos, I feel more like the "fat house cat" that Iron and Wine sing about in their haunting and beautiful song "Flightless Bird, American Mouth." And yes, this song is on the New Moon soundtrack, but I haven't seen that crazy show.

So I don't really know what the face I'm making in this picture is about, but...I love this picture. I think it is so sweet of Ty. When I saw this picture, I said, "Aw, Ty loves me." I already knew that...he did give me a ring and ask me to be his wife, he does tell me he loves me all the time, he helps me with anything and everything I ask, and he makes time for things that are important to me, he values my opinion, he rubs my shoulders and kisses me, he lets me watch him feed his pet ball python Sam, he plays racquetball with my brother even though he has a manuscript to finish, he is so sweet and gentle with me...but his expression in this picture is so adorable that I love this picture.

I could talk about Ty for hours. He is really good to me. I have learned so much from knowing him, dating him, and being engaged to him, and I am a much better person because of it...even though it has only been a few short months. He is wonderful and I love him.
