10.10.10 Thank You's

Daddy
daddy thank you

I love him.

I love my daddy.  So much.  He is the most selfless, considerate man I know and he probably hates that I’m announcing that so boldly to so many people because he’s also quite humble.  My whole entire family has been preparing for 10-10-10 but a lot of the huge tasks fell into Daddy’s lap…. and he never complained. Ever. You see, I decided that I wanted to get married at our home church where daddy has been the pastor since Michael and I were toddlers.  It just makes sense for us!  We love our home church and so when the ceremony location was decided, we also decided to have a tent reception in the field behind our home.

Wedding Wednesday

Once again…

…”Wedding Wednesday” has become a “Wedding Thursday”. Ugh.  I JUST looked at the clock as it struck 12:02am….its’ officially Thursday. I missed the mark.  I guess that’s what happens when you try to blog 4 days before your wedding…. you get a little side tracked and distracted by the number of lanterns you ordered and which table the extra program baskets are going to sit on.. etc,etc. I’m kinda getting to the point where I just want it to happen! I want my family to get to relax, I want my daddy to stop fixing things 24-7 and I’m ready to be married and CELEBRATE! Woohoo! 10-10-10 is almost here!!!! I can’t believe it!!!!!

Momma
momma thank you

This thank you

is dedicated to my momma.  Momma never worked when we were growing up. She was a stay at home mom.  She never missed my cheering at football games and never had to skip Emy’s softball games and is STILL making it to all of Corey’s golf matches.  I don’t think I appreciated her being a home as much as I should have because it was all I had ever known. I never had to ride the bus, I never had to stay at a babysitters and I never had to wonder whether or not my parents would be showing up for the honor assemblies or not….. they were both just always there.
