GIRL! I just read on FB… not the first time I have seen the post nor the last but hear me out:
Everyone has opinions on the age, the pace my relationship has moved and the whole wedding in general!
THIS IS WHY I AM MARRYING NOW, WHATS RIGHT FOR ME AND HOW I WILL LIVE MY LIFE….
not everyone gets married for the right reasons and that worries me, but that’s not me.
My age is a number! It’s the maturity of the brain that matters! You could be 40 get remarried does that automatically make the marriage okay? NO! I know 45 year olds that act worse then 16 year old girls in high school!
The pace of my relationship is just how much Keaton and I click! If I have a problem I tell him, if I need attention I tell him. If I need emotional support, an ear to listen or just to listen how his day was or if he needs anything from me WE TELL EACHOTHER! If I have a problem with him I TELL HIM NO ONE ELSE! Unless he makes me so mad I call britt because I need someone to talk me down sometimes! (Thanks home girl) Keaton and I as a unit are working great! There is no secrets I keep from him and there is no secret he keeps from me (unless it was him waiting 3 months to pop the question) he couldn’t keep a secret any longer so he had to ask!
Yes in 1 month Keaton and I will be together for a total of 2 years! Man have those 2 years taught me so much!
I have been in HORRIBLE relationships when my brain was immature enough to put up with so much BULLS#!T! But now I know how I should be treated and that’s like a mf princess (say it how Avril Lavigne sings it)! Keaton treats me like that and better and I don’t even have to sugar coat it or lie because it’s the truth!
I treat him like the man he should be treated like! Because he deserves it!
So is the ring changing anything!?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I’m head over boots for the kid! Just like day one! I will be till he can’t stand me anymore and he pushes me down a hill in my wheel chair!
Is this rock on my finger change how I treat him or him me! Will it when we get married? NO
WHATS GOING TO CHANGE IS…
my last name, the amount of dogs, cows, goats, pigs and babies we will have together. How much we will learn and grow TOGETHER! The amount of beer we consume… (ehh that’s not going to change… I lied. Sorry) the amount of times i will fall in love with him will change! Because I will fall for him every day!
He makes me happy, he makes me sane, makes me feel safe, he loves me more then I could love myself most days! He is my motivation, procrastination and my world! I have him and he has me! Take the rock off my finger and put a fricken zip tie on me and I’ll still love him more then ever!
So no the rock doesn’t change it, the size of my wedding doesn’t change it and if I married keaton in the court house, in our back yard or on a gravel road! I would still be over the moon that I get to marry someone who is honest, hard working and humble!
So I will marry Keaton Schmidt ring or not! Rich or poor! Budlight or Coors banquet! I will love him for how he treats me (shout out to Rick and Sabra for raising one hell of a man) and how we work well together!
I love you Keaton Schmidt!
MARRY WHO YOU WANT FOR THE RIGHT REASONS AND DONT BE DAMNED IF SOMEONE TRIES TO RAN ON YOUR PARADE!
Ohhhschmidt I said it!

Ps keeping my ring because it’s shiney and I like it on my left hand! Sorry not sorry.
