One thing I have realized in all of this wedding planning is that people that elope are really smart! ;) The great news is..... The sealing cancelation letter came!! Remii and I started the process back in September. We had to choose to get married on either December 29th or March 29th because of his parents school schedule in Chicago. So I didn't purposely try to make my parents hate their life with me and my sisters weddings within a week of each other! The big process was getting all the letters and paperwork ready to submit. My ex finally signed a letter (after returning all of the mail to us) the night before we met with the stake president the end of January. The process was complete and finally submitted to the first presidency. It took about 8 weeks until the letter from the first presidency came signed in the mail. What a huge stress reliever that was! A friend stated it the best, she said, Isn't it odd that such a sad thing is so utterly fantastic?? And that is how I feel! That was the absolute worst time in my life and my life was completely changed overnight. I didn't believe that good guys existed and I really did believe that I was going to be a single mom for the rest of my life. Remii changed that all for me. From the moment that we met, I knew that that he was different. I was first attracted to him for his love for the gospel and strong testimony in the church. And he was temple worthy and has kept himself pure for his future wife. Ok ok and he is pretty attractive too! He is so perfect for me and my boys.
I am so overwhelmed with love and happiness right now. I can now look back on my trials that had I to go through to get to this point in my life and it was all worth it. I have 13 more days to go before I marry Remii for eternity. And it feels so far away! I know that day is going to be so special and I will cherish it forever. I am so excited and ready to start this new chapter in my life.
