So, I will be married in one week and one day. Yikes! This morning I woke up early and drove to White Cliffs with all my things and we talked for an hour, getting everything all set and making sure everything is all set. Then I went over to Blackstone Valley to return ribbon at Michael's that we had too mnay for, then to Yankee Candle to return a box of 12 I had gotten but didn't end up needing, and then to Barnes and Noble to pick up my check...got more than I was expecting!
It feels good to be done...and have everything out of my hands besides some last minute gifts and cards to put together, and then just fun stuff like dancing lessons and getting my nails done next weekend.
Alot of people are asking me if I am so excited and wonderful and full of the giddyness of marriage. And I say yes...and no. I am, I really am, but at the same time, this is all a bit bittersweet for me. I am excited to be marrying the most wonderful person and my best friend, but as the days go by and the countdown becomes smaller, I am reminded that I only have those few and precious more days until I leave the East Coast... and my family. So yes, I am excited for this next stage of life, to be married to Andrew. And yes, I am sad to be leaving the home I love and my mom and dad and other friends who live in close proximity.
