It's my Wedding Day!!!

Wow!!! I can't believe it is actually here! A long 18 month engagement comes to an end today, and it blows my mind that it's today!! And in a blink of an eye it will all be over and everyone who came today will be leaving soon.

I have been pretty calm surprisingly through this. Big shocker. Really. Although I will say that I am getting a bit nervous as I write this. Not nervous in the sense of doubt, oh no, nervous in the sense that I don't do anything stupid like fall off of the altar today-- like I did yesterday, but Chris had fast hands and caught me. Just like he always does. I know those are the things that you will remember most, but it really would be nice not to have wood grain on my face in the Please keep your fingers crossed for me.

My family has come into town which has been so so wonderful. Life is just better with family around and especially my parents whom I love dearly. I just wish that I got to spend some more time with them and two o'clock in the morning the last two nights finishing favors and programs doesn't count. It was still nice amidst the tiredness.

It's going to be a beautiful day today! Weather is perfect, and there is a big smile on my face! (and a sign of relief at that)

So below is a picture of the cake. Can't wait for this cake!! Imagine it with two less layers and a sage green color instead of the blue.
God love all of my trainers, without them I would be standing up there on the altar today in a dress that is three sizes smaller than when I first started this journey. There is still some work to be done, but I'll get there. I can truly say that it has given me a new found self confidence, esteem and freedom.

Well, it's time to get the day started!! I thank you all for reading. I truly do promise that I will have more time to keep up with you guys after today!!! lol

Please keep Chris and I in your prayers today, I would very much appreciate that!
