We are all having a great time venting over on this thread. But how about some love, eh? What positive things do you want to say to someone right now? (Answer regardless of whether you can actually say that thing or not—and if you can say that thing, go say it!)
Thanks for cooking dinner without my even asking, two nights in a row. I feel so taken care of!

To my future husband,
Thanks for trying to make me happy when I’m blue. For taking on wedding details when I feel overwhelmed. For offering to do my hair when I have bad hair days. Even though I don’t trust you with my hair, I love you for trying. 🙂

To my parents,
YOU ROCK. Simply put, you are the best parents I could ever ask for. Your generosity blows me away every day. And not just the physical gifts… but your mental and emotional generosity and your unconditional love. So many people have problems with their parents. I can’t believe how lucky I am to have you both.
Your forever grateful daughter
To my husband,
You & me, kid. I love you forever. Thanks for making me laugh when I don’t want to. Thanks for supporting me in everything I do. Thanks for loving me for who I am. Thanks for never giving up on me, and teaching me more about myself every day.
PS- FUN POST! I love the positivity!!!!!

To my future Husband:
Thank you for always supporting me. Thank you for loving even when I am having my difficult moments. And thanks for being interested in the planning–I love when you say “Any new wedding pictures or magazines to show me?”
You are wonderful and I love you.
To my parents:
Thank you for being so supportive of me. I was surprised by the level your excitement over my engagement and the planning, but I was so happy. Thank you offering to help pay for some of the wedding, when you are already paying for school. Thank you for welcoming J into the family. He truly thinks of you as his parents. And in general, thank you for giving me the kind of life you have given me. You have taught me great values and have given me the most wonderful childhood memories. You are what I hope to be as a parent.
You are the best example of a marraige. I hope I can be in the same position as you in 25 years.
I love you guys.

To Future Mother-In-Law:
Thank you SO SO much for not being crazy. Thank you for welcoming me into your family. Thank you for raising an amazing son (and daughter, I love her, too). Thank you for showing me what a healthy marriage looks like. I appreciate all of it more than you will ever know.
ps…still have to hit up that venting thread. I’m so late to the party on that one.

To my mother,
You are AMAZING! Thank you for taking on another job the past few months…and by that I mean helping me plan my wedding! Thank you for being with me every step of the way, even when it is over the phone, to help me decide. Thank you for knowing me well enough to know when I’m SURE about my dress, not so sure about centerpieces, and confused about save-the-dates and helping me speak up for myself about it! Thank you for loving me and Stephan, never oversteping your bounds but coming right to the edge with applebees gift cards and encouraging phone calls. Thank you for being normal and acting cheery and normal to all people involved in the wedding…not a MOBzilla.
Thank you for all the things along the way leading up to this…
and all the help I know you’ll still give after (don’t worry, after the wedding you KNOW I’ll be obsessing about moving, my job, babies, etc…we arn’t done yet!! 😛 )
Love you so,
To my future hubby,
I love you. Hurry home. I made pasta shells with cheese. Want to get some nice wine that we should NEVER drink with macaroni?

Thanks for being the most supportive, loving family! You guys are everything I have dreamed of and I love you each so much!
Thanks for being an amazing mom to me!
Dear Future Hubby,
Thanks for always fighting with me and loving me. For soft kisses on my forehead. For understanding me better then I do myself. So loving me through thick and thin. Thanks for always wanted to provide for me!

Thank you so much for being there for me through everything and being the best group of gals a girl could ask for! And thank you for planning what I am sure will be a fabulous girls weekend and coming from all over the country to celebrate. I can’t wait (even though it’s a few months away) and I miss you guys!
To my corazon-
Gracias por caminar con Frieda. Estas mi todo. Te amo.

Thank you for being the only one to be interested in the wedding without trying to hijack it and make it your own. I really appreciate your love and support.
Wish you were here.
Thank you, in the biggest sense of those words.

I miss you so much every night that you’re gone from me. I can’t wait until I get to sleep in your arms on a regular basis (although no guarantees that halfway through the night I won’t push you away!). You and God are the only reasons I am sane right now, and I cannot believe how much more I love you than I did only 9 months ago at our wedding. This may be the “worse”, “poorer”, and “sickness” part of our marriage, but with you I feel better, richer, and healthier than I ever did before. I love you.
Grow fast. Stop kicking me so hard. Don’t come till it’s time but don’t mess around either. I have never been so excited and so terrified to meet someone in my entire life. Love you more than can even understand.
I love you so much. Thank you for being my second mom. I know I’m being selfish, but please do chemo, unless they tell you it would hurt more than help. Please please please.

To my dear friend:
Thank you for dropping everything for me just because I needed you. I’ve not always been the best friend, but you’ve always been there for me. I’m kind of sad that marriage is going to change our relationship. BUT we’re timeless friends. We may not talk as much, due to our busy scheduls, but when we reconnect it feels like we haven’t missed a thing!
I love you. I appreciate you. You’re a wonderful human being!
