Bittersweet

This is it. The week of the wedding. What I've worked more than nine months to organize and plan.

I am slightly anxious. Not about the getting married part. But more that it'll be as awesome as the vision in my head. I'm sure it will, but the nerves I still has.

People have asked me if I'm ready for it to be over. It's actually not a simple answer.

On one hand, I am ready for it to be here. I am ready to move on to the next phase of my life. The next project - which will hopefully be updating our kitchen. I am ready to lie on a beach in Jamaica with my book in one hand and a margarita in the other. But most of all, I am ready to be married.

On the other, I have enjoyed the last nine plus months. Sure it's been incredibly stressful at times, even overwhelming. It hasn't always been easy, and I may or may not have broken down more than once. But I have really enjoyed it... the planning, the creativity, the special moments with my mom and/or dad. I enjoyed being a bride. And after Saturday I will no longer be a bride, which makes me a little sad.

So the end to our wedding journey - as almost all the ends of chapters of my life have been - is a bit bittersweet, as I look forward to the next phase/project but am sad to see the end of the previous one.

I'm sure it will be everything you ever dreamed. As long as it doesn't end up on America's Funniest Videos, I'd consider it a success.

Be happy Becky. Enjoy yourselves. Remember, after all is said and done, this day belongs to you and DF. Don't try to make everyone else happy, just let them share in the happiness that your wedding will bring the 2 of you.
God Bless the two of you. Happy Marriage!!!

The wedding will be fantastic. Don't worry if everything doesn't go exactly as planned, just make sure to remember to enjoy it. Sounds obvious, but it flies by and you have to make the effort to take it all in!
