1) Our 2 month anniversary was on Thursday the 9th
2) We are visiting home this weekend and I get to relive our wedding every time because we got married at my in-laws home.
After almost a year and a half of planning, the wedding is over! It's so hard to believe because when I first started planning after we had chosen a date, I kept saying that its so far away and I have so much time. Next thing I know, I have one week and am scrambling to finish small decoration details. I never had the idea in my head that I could pull off the best wedding ever seen. I knew that with my budget it would be hard to make my ideas and dreams come true. But with a lot of family and friends that love us, we pulled it off and it was more than I could have ever imagined. I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into the best day of my life so far. I am now very happily married to my best friend and high school sweetheart Tim. :) (after over 6 1/2 years of dating!!)
