I am so thrilled to finally be getting married in the latter half of 2015. Elated doesn't even begin to describe how I feel at the thought of spending the rest of my life with my best friend. Someone whom I prayed and
This whole process of planning a wedding is all very NEW and so exciting. Now no wedding would be complete without a generous dose of chaos, but thats a WHOLE other blog post.
I will admit I just wanted to elope with the two of us, I didn't want a wedding. After all I was more focused on planning for a marriage not a day. This was his second marriage, my first and we have kids. This will entail juggling acts that will need to be done to ensure we can blend as delicately as possible. I have been the CEO of my household and its going to be an adjustment for sure.
