I will be sealed to my sweetheart April 21.
I am working in the operating rooms tonight and will leave tomorrow morning for Utah to meet up with her (she's been there a week already).
My bags are packed. I remembered my ring and my temple recommend. After Utah we'll be flying to Hawaii, first time for both of us.
We have read multiple books recommended by you guys and others. (And They Were Not Ashamed was highly recommended by both my bishop and stake president, and they were glad that I had already read it). 5 Love languages was quick and good. Without Offense, the Art of Giving and Receiving Criticism started slowly, but turned out to be excellent, something I am already using in my daily life.
I've assembled many bookshelves, curios, and other pieces of furniture from Big Lots to store all of our stuff.
I landscaped and planted a flower garden with about 100 different flowers. She helped with a nice chunk of it, so I like to call her Eve once in a while, working with me in the garden. Upstairs neighbors (also newlyweds) will be watering and pruning while I am gone.
The wedding gifts are flooding in already. I am surprised at how many people actually picked something out of the online registry and had it directly mailed to us.
This will be a great week...and life.

He was my bishop for 2 years at BYU. Love Bishop Durrant!
