Normally, I am all about the stresses that have been involved with planning our wedding. And even though today I had to handle a certain amount of drama, I realized something, the drama has been over shadowed by the excitement of being happily married.
It doesn't seem that long ago since I first joined The Knot and got officially engaged to a wonderful man, a man I've been friends with since before my first marriage.
It has been a long road, a road filled with ups and downs, crazy ex's, grown children behaving badly, date changes, invitation flaws, and procrastinating wedding guests. But here's the thing...I know marrying this guy, I call my best friend, is worth every second of planning drama, because I wouldn't change any of it. Every bump is the designing tapestry of our engagement. Those highs and lows and how we've dealt with them as a couple, have defined us and our upcoming wedding day. All the second guessing that comes with being a second time bride and worry over the should or shouldn't I's, seem like a faded memory.
11 days from now I am going to be his Mrs and that's all that matters now.
Keep your bridal chin up, girls...one day (if you haven't already) you will wake up to a house filled with wedding stuff and you'll smile with excitement and anticipation, realizing that it's all coming together. I do hope this encourages someone. :-)
