There’s a lot that’s been going on; and wedding planning, honeymoon booking, and vacation planning has all-consumed my life. No complaints here though. I’ve just barely been home; traveling back and forth between our little haven of love on the west coast, to our hometown, every other week. I cannot tell you how excited I am to marry the love of my life. We’ll exchange vows in the church his parents and oldest sister got married. You’ll have to wait for details of the wedding… I’m not giving away anything!
I will let you in on our honeymoon agenda, though:
We fly into San Juan, Puerto Rico, the day after our wedding, only to catch a 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise to Curacao, Aruba, Dominica, and St. Thomas. Then, on the way back, we fly into Myrtle Beach where my family is having a mini-reunion. We’ve rented three beach condos for a week over the Fourth of July. I cannot wait!
So, again, sorry I’ve been M.I.A., but this girl’s been busy! I promise, promise, PROMISE when all the commotion lessens, I’ll be back to normal.
…till the BIG day!
It’s odd to think that it’s finally here. Lately, B and I have been thinking and talking about the adventure that got us here. From being set up on a blind date our sophomore year in college, to packing up and moving further south for B to delve into all.things.med.school.
People have been asking me lately, “Are you nervous?” And if I may be completely honest–YES! But maybe not for the obvious reasons. I’m not particularly nervous about forgetting something, or tripping down the aisle.
[Both my parents will be walking me down so I think it would be pretty hard to trip… unless we all went down, in which case I’d send a copy of it to America’s Funniest Home Videos and win $10,000… so it would be totally worth it…]
But, I’m more nervous about all the attention on me. See, I’m the type of girl who likes to do things for everyone else. I’ve always been on the side lines, and I like it here. It’s comfortable to me. I like helping other people get ready, and do their hair and make-up. And so, people have said, “But you grew up dancing in front of hundreds and thousands of people.” Yes, but with other people on stage with me, and with bright shiny lights blinding me from staring eyes.
It seems weird silly, I know, for a bride to not want all the attention on herself. However, I should feel assured because I’ve heard from multiple friends, who have already been down the aisle, that you get a little nervous, but once you’re up there with your best friend, everyone else kind of just d i s a p p e a r s.
I can’t wait for that moment.
Besides the fact I’m nervous about people waiting on me, I feel c.a.l.m. And ready. I’m ready to start a new life with my most favorite person in the world. I can go on and on about all the mushy stuff, but I’ll just leave it at that.
One more week. Til we say, “I do.”
One more week. Til I’m a wife.
God is truly great.
p.s. Oh, and how can I forget!? 1 week + 1 day = HONEYMOON!!!! 😉
p.p.s. See y’all in two weeks, when we return as a married couple!
…I’m a terrible blogger.
BUT… in my defense, I’ve been pretty busy.
“Why?” You might ask.
Because I’m getting married in 25 days!!!
So, needless to say, I’ve been a little preoccupied.
I hope everyone is having a safe and blessed summer!
