We had planned for me to go out to Utah over winter break since he would be there to visit his family for a couple weeks. So 2 days after Christmas we were finally reunited! I was SO happy to be with him and to spend time with his family. His mom had kept the stocking that she got me for the Christmas I spent with their family in 2008 and she filled it with so many goodies. A couple days after I got there, we decided to go ring shopping! The whole time we were at the jewelry store I was in a daze because I still could not believe that all of this was really happening and I was finally going to marry Miles Williams. I was freaking out in the best way. We walked into the jewelry store and the first ring we saw is the ring I now have on my finger. But we didn't get it that day. In fact, I wasn't even sure if that was the ring he was actually going to get me.
Later that night, Miles and I went to Salt Lake City to shop at City Creek and walk around Temple Square. Temple Square was gorgeous and freezing like it always is around Christmas time. I had the best time just walking around with Miles. We walked all around looking at the lights and listening to the music as we made our way to the front of the temple. We stood there hugging and then Miles said for the first time in two years, "Sandy, I love you so much." And I died. And I told him I love him too. After becoming his girlfriend and hearing him say "I love you" to me again, everything started to sink in and I stopped freaking out so much. That is when it hit me that I really was going to marry him and that none of this was a joke. And that made me so happy. Our time in Utah together was so wonderful and I didn't bawl my eyes out this time when we said goodbye. Mostly because while I was there, I bought a plane ticket to come see him in Hawaii in February.

I went back to Hawaii to be there for his graduation. His family was there also so that made it super fun to have them around. It was their first time in Hawaii so we got to be their tour guides.

Miles and I are getting married in TWENTY-FIVE days. It blows my mind that I have yet to have any doubts that this is the boy I want to spend forever with. I love him more every minute. He makes me the happiest, he doesn't annoy me like other boys do, he's witty, handsome, hilarious, and he just gets me. I am blessed beyond measure. I thank Heavenly Father every day for Miles and for the opportunity I have to be his wife. I am so in love.
