ALL OF MY HEART IN ONE SET OF PHOTOS AND HELLA WORDS ABOUT IT FROM A BRIDE WHO DOESNT USUALLY FEEL. * I'll admit: Amongst all this wedding planning, Ive had moments of "what's the big deal?" We all know some married people, we've all seen the pinterest boards. When I knew I was going to have a bridal get together, I knew it would be wonderful to see my special humans, but what I didnt understand until Sunday afternoon was that weddings excitement isnt just about who you're getting married to, or that you're making a promise to a human that we humans have been making for years and years.
On Sunday, I realized that this event is an incredible opportunity for you to celebrate the person you've become and the people that got you there. Before you were even thinking about rings and white dresses, you were crying about how hard high school was on you, or whining about fckboys (before we knew to call them fckboys), or just looking for a carefree night of escape from your parents before church the next day... Looking around my table on Sunday, and seeing women that I've known for over a DECADE (A DECADE, AT 25!) look at me with love and happiness, I was so overwhelmed . Thats what the big deal is. These women MADE me. Theyve seen me at my lowest, picked me up, and kept me going. Theyve seen me at my best and cheered from afar, still keeping me going. From each of them, I learned incredible things about myself and the world around me. And hereI am, getting married, to a man who loves me for the person I am - a person I might not be it weren't for these women, my cornerstones in life.
That shit is so deep and I love every one of you, including my friends living in other states that ill see in September. I understand and maybe I'm a little less jaded about some mushy feel things. and I feel yall. So here WE go. From #McGivernHerTheD
. As much as the big day will be for Dan and I, I also live and love because of you.
