I feel like it was just a few months ago that I got engaged and moved in with Andrew, but now it’s already June and the wedding is just about a month away. How did this happen? Luckily, I’m a fierce planner and almost everything is taken care of. I just can’t believe that I survived May, which was incredibly busy, with BEA, my first dress fitting, and all the other assorted plans we were finalizing, like music selection and cake flavors.
All I can say is, thank goodness for family and friends. I am so lucky in that I haven’t really stressed at all about this crazy, beautiful day coming up. The parents are doing all they can to take it off me and are creating a wonderful day for us all to celebrate. I have never felt so cherished and loved — it’s been amazing to see everyone come together and help out with making this day perfect and special. My mom’s friends — people whom I’ve known basically all my life — helped create wedding favors, my future mother-in-law is taking care of centerpieces and floral arrangements, along with providing support and love. It’s been a truly special time.
And I can’t wait to share all our adventures in Rome in London for our honeymoon. We are so excited to be able to spend that time together and experience new countries by each other’s side. So, if you’re going through a busy time, just take a moment to appreciate the people supporting and loving you. It’s hard to see it in the minutia of every day tasks, but it’s a wonderful thing.
