This is it!!!

After 4 years of friendship, over two and half years of love, and 11 weeks of planning....

I'm getting married!!!!!

Tomorrow is the big day and I'm absolutely beside myself! I have run every gamut of emotion that you could think of on the positive end :) On the one hand, I absolutely can not believe this is happening, and on the other hand I can't believe it hasn't already happened. I am still tearing up knowing that I will never be tucked into bed by my dad again (yes, I'm 22 and it's still my favorite ritual). BUT! I will never tire of the joy of finally getting to fall asleep with my man and wake up next to him. This is going to be the most amazing change in my life! My emotions are definitely running on overdrive right now.

A little over a year and a half ago, my most amazing friend Joy got married. When I went to visit her at her new home in Michigan, I saw a wooden sign that she had over her bed and I knew right away I wanted the same sign to hang over mine. My oldest sister, Abby, got me this sign for a wedding gift (which of course sent me into another crying moment)...and I can't wait to hang this in my bedroom. "Always kiss me goodnight".

I'm off to my rehearsal dinner...without the rehearsal, which is actually taking place at 8:45 tomorrow morning. And tomorrow morning at 11:00 a.m. I will begin a new journey..a new story...a new chapter. One that centers around this amazing man that has won my heart over and over and cherishs me and loves me with everything in him. One that promises my heart, my honor, my respect, my support, my everything to him for the rest of our forevers.

I absolutely can not wait for that moment.

I am the most blessed woman to be loved by this man.
