My Last Post...

...before I get married!!!

Today was my last day at school. I have the next two weeks off! Woohoo!!! I couldn't wait to get out of there today.

We don't travel up north until Saturday morning, so tomorrow I will get ready to go and be pampered a little bit. This week has been relatively stress-free. We worked a few glitches out (the wine and champagne delivery, guests canceling, and the guys' suits), got Michael's guys their gifts, loaded my parent's vehicle up with stuff we can't take with us on the plane, and enjoyed counting down the days. We are both very excited and happy.

I'm not planning on taking my laptop with me, and so I doubt I will post again until we return home the following weekend. But, I look forward to sharing pictures and maybe even a little home video of the ceremony with you all very soon.

Okay here's the best advice I got before my wedding day...
take your time going down the aisle!

So many brides are nervous and rush down the aisle so it's all a big blur. Or they stare straight ahead just to get through it.

I listened to this advice and it was so amazing! When it was my cue, I stepped into the doorway and stood still for a few seconds. I looked all around. Then I purposefully walked slowly down the aisle. I looked from side to side. Saw people's faces and the looks of happiness for me. Paid attention to the details...the beautiful flowers, the music, the look on my groom's face. Soaked it all in. Really enjoyed my moment. It's one of the best memories of my wedding day. So go slow!

Best wishes!

He is the half part of a blessed man
Left to be finished by such as she:
And she a fair divided excellence
Whose fulness of perfection lies in him.
- William Shakespeare

May your day be replete with overwhelming happiness and as you walk into the sunset with the man of your dreams may you be embraced by a feeling of completeness.

My heart is full for you, Joannah.
Enjoy the day that is meant to be all about you!

P.S. Don't worry about me, I have a driver picking me up at the airport and he assures me my gigantic pink gown will fit in the car! See you there ;)
