I’m Getting Married In The Morning!

May 6, 2011


I’m getting married tomorrow! Or I guess I should probably say today. After spending months and months researching, planning, crafting, and organizing, it’s finally here! It’s crazy to spend so much time and energy on one day but it is a special one. It marks the beginning of my life with Matthew, a man who has been the best boyfriend, fiance, friend and confident I could ask for. We have had so many wonderful adventures together, most of which have been documented right here on the blog. I know there are so many more to come and I can’t wait to walk down that aisle and say, “I DO!” It’s going to be the start of a whole other chapter and I’m excited to share it all with you here. Thank you all for reading, loving and supporting us. I’ve been seriously blown away by your comments, emails, texts, and tweets this week. You all are so awesome and wonderful and it means so much to me and Matthew! Ok now off for some beauty rest. The next time I post I’ll be a married woman! eee!!
