As you may imagine, these last few weeks leading up to the wedding are filled with stress, glee, and then more stress, and then excitement (with a little stress) and more glee. I feel like I am running around like a madwoman, and yet, most everything --- every DIY I wanted to attempt, every task --- is done (I think/hope).
Yesterday, I shared with Patrick our four year anniversary! When I think about it, it is quite the momentous occasion. I never spent so much time in a relationship with one person, and it still and always, always feels exciting and charged with love. I knew very early on in our relationship that it was the relationship, and have been lucky in never doubting that fact for a minute.
As we draw closer to our wedding day, the strength of meaning to our marriage grows more vivid. Ultimately, I can't wait for it to be here. I know we will have a whirlwind day of fun, dancing, singing, happy tears, love and family. But, I also can't wait for the day after the wedding. Not just because we are jetting off on our fantastic honeymoon! GAHHHHH! Details laters, but also because we will. be. married. FINALLY!
In the past few weeks we've been doing everything from our seating chart, to bathroom baskets, to escort cards, to choreographing dances, and it's been a joy -- and also a little stressful. I seem to be ultra-sensitive to everything, but I've got Patrick behind me, and my beautiful bridesmaids all around me. Each being more than 150% supportive and helpful. I am so grateful for that. This weekend is my Bachelorette/Bridal shower (SUPER EXCITED for that), and then, next week is our wedding!
It's true what they say...the last few months FLY by. I am so glad they did, because I am ready to get married and spend the rest of my life with my best friend.
