getting hitched and some ramblings about it and such
The time has finally come. I am getting married. Yup, hitched, tied down, tamed, saying goodbye to the bachelor days and all that. I am luckily marrying my best friend. She is a patient, kind hearted soul who for some reason has the ability to deal with me and my tumultuous life. I really am quite lucky to have broken past the friend zone and swindled the girl into liking me! I have known Claire since 2007 so that makes it almost 5 years now. During that time I have had girlfriends and she has had boyfriends, but we still managed to stay friends and when the stars aligned and we both ended up in the right place, our paths stopped just crossing finally and paralleled. I for one am thankful that they did. I kept hearing that when you find the right girl its just easy. I never believed that because my relationships were always hard in one way or another.(a large part of that difficulty my own making!) Timing I have been told by some. Different goals by others. Religion differences. Well Claire was like glass. Smooth and simple. There were a few little air bubbles, but nothing major and as I spent more and more time with this woman I started to realize that this was what they all talk about. The easiness. The simplicity. The ability to just be open and accepting of one another. It hit me back in ferurary of this year that I really wanted this girl with me always and that I best put a ring on it. So in 16 days I will marry Claire Valene Bagley and we will take on this crazy adventure of a life together. WOOT!
So most of my friends and family will get this above invite soon, but if you didnt fill out the facebook forms or get me your address one way or another then know that your invited to the Utah reception, Georgia reception, or both. Come dance, come cut loose, and come help us celebrate our marriage. And dangit, stay classy folks!
If you cant tell, there is a hint of steampunk in our wedding theme, so if you feel like dawning the monocle, top hat, Victorian styled garb, or geared up steampunk robot arm, feel free! ;)
