  1. Hi, I love that you aren’t giving up your silly side. I found when I had children it gave me “permission” to be silly again. Now that they are out of the house, I have to work to maintain that silliness. My dogs and cats are now my audience along with my husband!

  2. Lovely story. Winter is magical to me and more proof of our Father in Heaven.
    I held onto my silly side when I got married. My husband is fortunately just as silly and embraces the fun stuff as well as the serious when it is called for. 🙂

  3. That is awesome! My parents got married on December 20th so that their new life as a couple {aka after the reception} would be the first day of Winter! Though I think at times they regret never having the money to do anything like travel for their anniversary I definitely understand that they were starting fresh with the season and I think that is beautiful. May the Lord bless you throughout the holidays and especially in your marriage. Being grateful for an amazing hubby during the season of Christ is just another way of giving Him praise and thanks for what you have!

  4. WOW!!!That’s beautifully written! I’m so proud of you. I wish I could be there for the wedding but, Jennifer and the girls will be there. I love you so much and congratulations on the addition to your already wonderful life!

  5. I love how you wrote this and am happy you are not giving up your silly self and that you too get excited every Christmas. I turned 30 this year and still wish Christmas could last longer than 24 hours. May you have a wonderful marriage with your new husband and Christ! Congrats!

  6. That’s lovely! I’m 58 and in a couple of weeks my fiance is arriving from a working trip overseas for us to make the final plans for our wedding. Your story gave me the hope for the waiting. Have a beautiful new year with your new you and groom.

  7. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I wish you and your fiancé all the happiness in the world!! 🙂

    Never ever give up the child in yourself. Always be true to who you are. Growing up is so different for everyone. Some of us grow up slowly aka late bloomers. I will always treasure the silly side of me and my hubby, yet treasure the loving side of us also.

    Congratulations again on the upcoming nuptials.

  8. “Growing up for me isn’t a series of erasing, but instead it’s adding more to the image.” Love this, Becky! After all, Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” I pray I never lose that childlike me.
    Congratulations on your wedding!

  9. I so enjoyed this post! As a fellow bride to be, I relate all too well with this new preparation stage as a soon to be MRS. It is such a sweet, refreshing season of life! 🙂 Happy wedding planning lovely!

  11. Beautiful!! Keep it up and congratulations on your upcoming marriage. Love God, love each other

  12. Many blessings on your new marriage! Your feelings about Christmas really resonate with me. 🙂 I hope we never lose the child-like excitement we feel for the holiday season. My husband and I celebrated two years of marriage this December, and I must say that I LOVE having our anniversary during my favorite time of the year. It just adds to the magic and heartwarming feeling of thankfulness that I always experience during Christmastime. Thank you for sharing your joy with us!
