Crazy isn't it? If you would have told me my freshman year in high school that I would be marrying Daniel 9 years later, I probably would have laughed at you. I didn't think 'high school sweethearts' existed anymore. It really doesn't. Well, it did for us.
Nervous? I get that question a lot. The answer is...no. Not yet :) I know I will be. I'll be a nervous wreck and my sisters will have to keep me focused and keep me from running off into a tizzy and anxiety and nervousness. That's what they are there for. My dad will be there probably holding tightly to my arm to make sure I don't freak out and run away and do something crazy like I do when I get nervous and anxious. It happens, don't laugh. Okay, go ahead... my methods of dealing with anxiety are hilarious and a bit dramatic, I admit. I'm getting nervous just talking about this. Moving on.
We finally got our honeymoon completely booked. We will be leaving the day after our wedding for a night in Miami before we board our ship to cruise through the eastern Caribbean. I. cannot. WAIT! It's going to be amazing. Amazingly beautiful, breathtaking, and so relaxing. I haven't been on a REAL vacation since I was probably 10 years old. We took a mini vacation with our best friends, Christian and Mandy, to South Padre a few years ago before Christian was deployed to Iraq. It was a relieving weekend get-a-way, but other than that, I haven't had the real deal. The week long far away trip to some beautiful beach where you're surrounded by crystal blue water and the smell of waves and the beach every morning. Yeah, THAT'S what i'm looking forward to.
Sunday I took my bridal portraits. It was disgustingly hot, but our good friend, Jennifer, did a great job. After playing a few rounds of Top Golf with my dad and nephew, I started (frantically) throwing together all the little pieces for this shoot I had planned out. Vases, quilts, flowers, balloons... oh, did I mention I was doing all this in a car with no air conditioning when it was 105 outside? It was awesome. Even after all that, the pictures are turning out BEAUTIFUL. I got to see a sneak peek the other day. Let's just say I am ridiculously excited to see the rest of them tomorrow when I pick up my CD.
Now we're down to the nitty gritty details. Here's to keeping my head straight and trying to keep cool in probably the 4 most stressful weeks of my life.
