My Own Little FairyTale

Once upon a time, in a land not so far away,
There lived a fun-loving, brown-haired girl who always had plenty to say...
She had finished college and a mission too,
Sports, traveling, and chillen with friends were some of her favorite things to do.
Everywhere she went, someone had "someone she had to meet"
Lots of them sucked, but she kept waiting for someone to sweep her off her feet...
Her family gave them nicknames, Lurch and No-Neck to name a few,
You single girls out there better hope these guys don't show up to go out with you!!
Her life was fun and once or twice she thought she met "MR. RIGHT"
Sometimes it hurt and she was confused when to be with her they wouldn't fight...
Then one day, a girl she didn't even know from work said "I have a brother who's single too"
She avoided the situation as best she could but knew eventually what she would do..
She knew so little about him- he was younger and drove a BIG red truck-
Just some Wrangler wearin cowboy from Hooper would be her luck!
So they made plans for dinner and she worried about what to wear,
But when she opened the door to greet him all she could think was "he has long hair?"
Dinner and bowling were date number one..
Afterwards she wasn't sure how she felt but knew she had a lot of fun :)
Bit by bit more and more time they spent,
With each passing day she knew that he had to be heaven sent.
They'd talked about the future and thought maybe May or June
Then after 10 days apart they thought again and said "maybe we should do this soon?!?"
They picked out rings and made some plans about how and when a family they would start,
And with each passing day this girl knew she had given him her whole heart!
At the end of September they made it official with a ring and all that goes,
With only 7 weeks til the wedding how they will do it, only heaven knows.
The moment had finally come she had waited for her whole life,
To the temple she would go to become someone's eternal wife.
To kneel across the altar and be so deep in LOVE,
Is the greatest blessing that is bestowed from our Father up above.
It's the year of beginnings and ends and the start of a whole new chapter...
And when their story is complete it will say... "They lived happily ever after!"
