The Last One...

Right now I'm sitting in the living room of my new apartment with one of my best friends sitting in my eye line at the table putting a bouquet together, I have my cousin sitting next to me on the couch and another girlfriend sitting across from me. We are all talking about the fact that I, Julia Sanders, am getting married tomorrow.
When I started this blog it was to tell all the stories I've experienced in my dating life because it was just so laughable. I started this blog with so many stories already in mind and acquired so many more throughout the last 4 years.
I started this blog at 26 always thinking, "I'll probably get married in the next year or so."
Throughout my dating life, I was always told... "one day..."
"One day someone will come around and change everything..."
"One day it will be different"
"One day it will be worth it"
"One day you'll find someone who appreciates you"
"One day... one day... one day"
I learned to despise those words. Ironically, before I loathed them, I wrote a song with those words being the main theme.
"They say hold on, just be strong, your day will come
They tell me that
One day, it will be better
One day, it will be time
Someone will heal all your heartache
Someone will finally find you"
October 4th was that one day. October 4th I met the guy that would change everything. One day, everything was different.
Tomorrow that one day will change my life.
People keep telling me that I am oddly calm, disturblingly so. All I can say is the girl that has been writing this blog all this time, is finding it really difficult to believe that this day has come.
This will be my last post on this blog. This is my single life blog and tomorrow I will be Julia Halls and will have to share my blonde moments and ridiculous stories that I acquire as a wife. I have no doubt there will be plenty.
It's bittersweet to close this chapter of my life. It's been a good ride, but I'm so excited to start a new one.
I wrote a song that I'll sing for Matt at our luncheon tomorrow. I'm quite certain he won't read this blog prior to that so I'll put the lyrics here.

They said one day my love would come
I've waited to see that through
Looking at you I realize
That I have been waiting for you

I've wondered my life how he would be
The one who would love me true
So many years have shown me, my dear
That I have been waiting for you

Each time my heart would break again
I'd pray that you were near
I couldn't have hoped for anything more
My Love, you're finally here

So take my hand and never let go
I'm giving my heart to you
All of our lives I'll never forget
That I had been waiting for you.
I've been waiting for you!
