An Open Letter to Krista and Chris

Hi Guys,

Do me a favor? It'll just take a minute, I promise.

Hold out your left hand in front of your face. Just look at it for a second or two. Now, count the fingers. Yes, the thumb too. Yeah yeah, I know, it's a thumb, not a finger. Just count it, OK? (Do you have to be so obstinant? I mean, really!) Count your fingers. Five of them, right? (Assuming neither of you are really a Simpsons character.) You guys can now count on one hand the number of days until your wedding. How cool is that? After a year of planning. After counting all the fingers on dozens upon dozens of hands, and even a few toes on a few feet, it's now down to one hand. Five fingers, on one hand. Five days.

Now, take a closer look at the ring finger on your left hand. Krista, take off the bling for a sec, and just take a look at your ring finger. It's bare. It's naked. There's probably a faint tan line from your engagement ring, Krista. But Chris, your finger is plain, almost stark looking.

In five more days this finger won't be bare anymore. Ever.

In five days you won't say "This is my fiancee..." anymore. Instead you'll say "This is my husband..." or "This is my wife..." when you are introducing each other to someone. Even though you'll call each other "husband" or "wife" the real meaning behind those titles will always be "This is my best friend."

We are beyond excited for you two, and we can't wait 'til Saturday.

Aww. This is a sweet post. Congrats to Krista and Chris.

You know, I often look at Bill's hand and realize how excited I am to decorate it in the not too distant future. Sometimes, though, that future can't get here fast enough. I feel weird introducing him as my fiancee. Like last night at Steph's band concert. I ended up sitting a row away from a girl I went to HS with and just behind us was one of exhole's cousins. It probably didn't help we were sitting with Bill's ex-wife. Yeah, it was kind of a weird situation.

This is a very sweet post. I still remember how it was to use the word husband the first time. Very shocking. But in a good way.

Enjoy it!
