At the End of the Day

I’m engaged.  I still can’t wrap my mind around that.

Wedding planning sometimes gets kind of…stressful…  There are a lot of decisions for me to make and some days it’s hard to stay calm and easygoing.  But I’ve been trying to remind myself that at the end of the day–no matter how the ceremony or reception unfold–I will be married to my best friend and the love of my life.  So if the bridesmaid dresses are the wrong shade or the pictures don’t turn out quite like I hoped…if it rains or the flower girl won’t walk down the aisle like she’s supposed to…if it’s too cold or one of the decorations breaks…nothing is going to change the fact that at the end of the day we’ll be married.

I’m trusting that it will be beautiful no matter how everything turns out.  It’s just one day of the many thousands that I hope we have together.  It doesn’t matter if the wedding is not quite perfect or not exactly how I’d dreamed it to be.  Because it’s just the beginning of our life together.  And that part–spending the rest of my life with him– is what I’m most excited about.
