Haha I agree!! Before the holidays it seemed so far away and then almost in a days time we started getting serious and down to business!
Love this! So very true! I try to remind myself of this when I start to get overwhelmed.
I feel like a lot lately. BUT this week I’ve been feeling on top of everything…hopefully that feeling will stay?? lol
There have been SOO many times where I’ve looked at my fiance and seriously said I want to elope. It would be so much easier for us to just go away and have a party when we get home. Then I think of all the important people we’d miss being there and (shallow or not) I want to show my beautiful dress off!!
Everyone is so organized! Wow! Love it!
