Andi and I met at the courthouse to apply for the license together. We wanted to share in the experience - although in the state of Minnesota, only one member of the party has to be present to apply. Don't you think this is weird, by the way? You mean to tell me anyone with my SOS number can sign me up to marry them? Yikes, that's scary.
Anyway, we walked up to the window and handed the worker our paperwork. She read through it, signed it and then told us to raise our right hands. Do you swear ... blah, blah, blah ... agree you are a man and a woman ... blah, blah, blah ... and are willfully entering into marriage with the other person. And we said YES. My heart was racing as she sputtered off the statement. I can't believe I'm really getting married! That's all could think about! I can't wait to be Andi's wife.
We walked out of the courthouse office with the biggest smiles on our faces.
Only 3 weeks left until we're married!
