Dear Future Husband

Okay, so you’re probably singing that Meghan Trainor song in your head now. Am I right? That song makes me laugh. Have you ever listened to the lyrics? Just check out the first part of the lyrics below.

“Dear future husband,
Here's a few things
You'll need to know if you wanna be
My one and only all my life…”

So after just this first part, she goes off singing about how all these things her husband better know or do in order to keep not only her, but their relationship. How crappy is that? Like, dear Meghan Trainor, I am pretty sure a marriage is a two part relationship, not just a man serving you for the rest of his life. It is a marriage, not some dominated, slavery type relationship. Once I analyzed (and hated on) that song, I started to think about what I would say to my future husband. If I got the chance to write to my future husband, what would I say? If I did get the chance to do that, I think it would go a little something like this:

Dear Future Husband,

I haven't met you yet, but I really hope you know how much I have been praying for you. Since I was a little girl, I dreamed of marrying someone that was placed in my life by God alone. How cool is it to know that when God created our beings, He knew that one day we would meet and be such an amazing tool for the furtherance of the gospel? I hope you know I have been thinking about our future family. I am convinced that you will be an amazing father. I am not so sure that I will be an amazing mother, but will definitely try my hardest. You know, I am praying for your heart. While I am praying for yours, I am praying for mine, as well. I am praying that God will mold me in to the woman you have always dreamed of spending your life with. I can’t wait to make dinner for you, go out with you, and watch football (or baseball) with you. I can’t wait to see how you will lead our family and how God will continue to work in your life. I can’t wait to walk through life with you. I can’t wait to grow old with you and rock in our rocking chairs while we watch the sun rise and set on the place where God leads us to live. I will continue to pray for you. I will continue to seek God’s wisdom and guidance in my life. I will continue to strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman and future wife. Lastly, I will continue to prayerfully and faithfully wait until the moment that God introduces you into my life. With God as the foundation of our marriage, we are totally going to rock it.

Your future wife,

Maci.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
