Time flies!

2 years ago today I was getting ready to be married. I cannot believe it has been 2 whole years - time flies when you are having fun I guess!

I remember the excitement of getting ready, the hustle & bustle in the house all morning with people coming & going and then how serene it felt once everyone had gone and it was just me & my dad. I remember the scent of the flowers, the slight mist in the air that morning, and watching all the little details that I had meticulously planned come together finally.

I remember being excited, not nervous to walk down the aisle, and the look on Michael's face at the other end. I remember saying our vows & being so overcome with emotion that I did the one thing I had promised myself not to do - cry. I remember forgetting that we were in a church full of people, and feeling like it was just us two. I remember Michael forgetting to wait for his cue and kissing me before he was told he could 'now kiss the bride'!


I remember my cheeks aching from smiling so much, and not a fake camera smile - a genuine I'm-so-happy-I-could-burst smile. I remember the happiness of having so many family & friends share the day with us, and taking a moment to stand back & take it all in. I remember dancing, twirling, singing and laughing, and I remember wanting to wear my dress everyday because it made me feel like a princess!
Most importantly I remember it being the happiest of days, and the beginning of life together as husband & wife.

That life as a pair is now ending, and we'll soon be a trio, a happy little family of 3! Only 99 days to go!
