Tomorrow's the day.....

Things have been hectic in the week or so leading up to the wedding which I'm sure you can understand. Tomorrow I get married. I get my hair and make up done, I slip on my dress, and I walk down the aisle to the man I love. I'm so lucky to have him in my life, to have him love me so much, for him to want to spend his life with me, for us to have even found each other in this big world of ours. 

So yes, tomorrow we're having a wedding but it's not about the wedding. It's not about the dress or the food or the tent or the photos; it's about our marriage. It's about standing in front of the people we hold near and dear and saying "This is the person I choose. This is who I want to spend my life with." Each and every day I get to wake up beside him and fall asleep with him. I get to share hopes and dreams with him, I get to have him wrap his arms around me when I'm scared of what's to come. I don't think lucky is even the right word. I am blessed. I am overjoyed. I am beyond happy. I don't even think the word I need exists right now. 

Thanks to you all for your support and love, for reading my rants, for giving your input. I promise to be back ASAP (definitely before the honeymoon) to let you know how it all goes. On my way out, a few photos from our relaxing mani/pedi afternoon with my girls.
