2 Months Until "I Do"

 Exactly TWO MONTHS from today we'll be MARRIED!

I seriously cannot believe that it has been 9 months since we got engaged... it feels like it was just yesterday! This year has flown by SO fast 🙈  When we first set our wedding date, it seemed like it was forever away! It's hard to believe that in exactly two months, the big day will be here 😍 

I know that I've shared our engagement photos time and time again on Facebook and Instagram but since I've started by blog, I haven't shared them on here! In honor of our wedding day only being two months away, I've decided to do a post all about Jacob and I and even link several details from the outfits I wore in our engagement pictures. 

A little back story...

Jacob's sister, Anna Macon is my very best friend and has been for as long as I can remember. 'Best friend' doesn't actually begin to cover it... she's more like the sister I never had and the other half of my brain. Jacob and Anna Macon have the most incredible family in the world, and a HUGE one at that. Since Anna Macon and I have been friends, I have been going to their family Christmas parties, birthday parties, vacations, holiday parties, lake weekends, etc. (even gone in Jacob's place on family vacations a few times a long long time ago... thanks for having other plans Jacob 😁). Long story short, their family has always felt like my own. HOWEVER throughout all of this.... Jacob and I were never friends. It's not that we weren't friends, we just never really acknowledged each other 😂  So if you know Jacob and I personally, I can imagine that when we started dating 3 years ago you were a little shocked. We went to the world's smallest high school (pretty much) and I think within the first month we dated, just about every person I can think of texted me, him, or Anna Macon asking if it was real haha. To be honest, we were just as shocked as everyone else. I don't think anyone on this planet saw it coming... us included.

Flash forward a few years... Christmas 2014. Every year, their family has a huge family Christmas party. Some how, some way I ended up going as Jacob's date as a complete and total joke. I honestly don't even think we spoke the entire night 😂  After that, we became friends (kind of) as in we spoke one or two sentences when we saw each other. Several months went by and in the summer of 2015, Jacob moved back to Greenville for grad school. It was my (first) senior year at ECU (I changed my major once or twice... oops) so I was already living down there. We had tons of mutual friends (one being his sister- who I lived with) so we ended up hanging out in the same place/with the same people pretty much every weekend. We ended up becoming actual friends and then started officially dating in September of 2015 💕

The point of the back story is that it's so funny how things work out and things that are meant to be truly always do find a way. As you can imagine, when we first started dating, it was a little weird because of the fact that #1 his sister and I were/are best friends and #2 I was already basically a part of his family. I started going to family functions as "Jacob's girlfriend" and not just "Anna Macon's friend." I never ever ever would have expected things to work out like they did but I don't think there's a happier person on the planet than me because of it. In exactly two months, my "other family" becomes my actual family, my best friend becomes my sister "in law," and the guy I never expected to even become friends with becomes my husband.
