goodbye solteria

well.. it looks like the last time I posted about the biggest event of my life.. it was 39 days away. now.. it’s 3 days away.


3 days till I’m Mrs. Havea. and it’s hitting me hard. and my head has just exploded onto the wall behind me.


just kidding. everything about my head is still intact. except for the fact that I feel like I’m having an out-of-body experience and I can’t believe I leave to go to TONGA tomorrow to go get married to a guy I’ve been in a long-distance relationship with for over a year.. with whom I served a mission, but barely knew at the time, and never imagined would end up being my husband.. ever.


this is seriously surreal. and you guys..

I could not be more excited!! and more.. every possible emotion all at the same time!

I just wanted to do one last post as a single woman.. and when I return, I’ll do my best to give a juicy marriage update full of Tonga details and photos. mmkay? I have promised that to so many people that I feel pretty hugely obligated.

anyway, I love him. a lot.

he’s perfect for me.. in our imperfect way. and my favorite part about this whole thing.. is how excited he is. it’s seriously the cutest, happiest, most wonderful thing that’s ever happened in my life. I’ve waited a long time for him..

and I truly have no idea how this wedding is really gonna go down, but I get to be married to Mote, so it’s gonna be okay.


I’m gonna go to sleep now, so I can wake up and church it up, celebrate my AMAZING mom (seriously.. what would I do without her? she is flying across the world w/me tomorrow to happily support me marrying a man she has never met.. mom of the year), talk to my Isaac brother (who gets home from missionary-ing in Brazil in 3 weeks!!!!) and then get on a plane and fly across the ocean to see my other half.

I’ll catch you guys on the flip side of single!

(that’s the married side, right? ..k.)
