- Wedding: April 2012
Although my Sunday to-do list wasn’t even touched, today was amazing! My 3 beautiful sisters threw me my Bridal Shower today and they definitely outdid themselves. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and special day. Family I haven’t seen in a couple of years made the trip to share the day with me as well as some of my future family and even an Aunt to be I hadn’t met yet. The food was delicious, the cake was delicious and the company was exactly what I needed. With the stresses of trying to plan the wedding I think I had forgotten about what this is all really about…two people soooo in love that they are joining for life. This isn’t something that either of us take with a grain of salt, and as I opened gifts and half read the cards (I have them next to me now to read before bed since I know I couldn’t have handled the emotions of reading them in front of everyone) I just had to breathe and absord the fact that me, ME of all people was getting married. It’s something we all dream of growing up, but then we get hurt and other things get in the way and we just sort of have that feeling that I’m never going to find anyone, until you meet that one special person who dries your tears instead of makes them and tells you you’re beautiful even when you know you’re a mess and loves you in a way that you can’t describe to anyone else. This journey is unlike any other in my life so far and coming from a long line of tearful people today was especially one of tears, all happy though. I hope everyone is enjoying this adventure and takes time to breathe and enjoy these next weeks ahead!
