to have and to hold: i'm getting married today!

IT'S TRUE.

TODAY I GET TO MARRY THIS GUY!

 
 

Over the course of the past year, starting with the thrill of his proposal, where he got down on one knee and asked "You wanna?" (actually, though, that's how he proposed!), through the emotional moments of wedding planning, to just recently writing our vows, we've had a lot of time to reflect on love and family and our future together. It's been so, so good.

Because of this man, I've grown in ways that I never thought possible. He provides the space to be free to be more "me," and for that I'm eternally grateful. He encourages me to love myself first and supports all of the crazy business and learning obsessions that come with being with a woman dedicated to being passionately plugged into life.

Today, I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. To be surrounded by the people that I love most in the world as I join with my favorite human in a raucous celebration of our relationship.

 
 
You were you,
and I was I;
we were two
before our time.

I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.
— Lang Leav, "Always"

In business news, I'll be out of the office for the next couple of weeks on our honeymoon -- returning to launch the next chapter of my business and our life! I've picked out a few gems from the archives to make their way to the blog while I'm away. 

With love, 

xx Kate
