Boy are these crazy days!!! I am hanging on but man I can't wait for it to be over.

My friends from NY are flying in tomorrow morning and I am so excited for them to be in California!! What a great time we are going to have.

I am so excited for Saturday to come. To have all my friends from all over in one place is really gonna be great!! Not to mention the amazing time dancing we are gonna have.

I wonder how it will all turn out....you spend months and months planning this one day!! I am excited to head to Jamaica as well. I can't wait to see the land and the people. I am really looking forward to it.

Pray that nothing lights on fire at the reception....the centerpieces we made, can't be fully trusted!!

Well.....the countdown basically starts here.
Maybe I will find more time to blog after this shindig goes down.....not promising anything but we'll see.

Happy New Year everyone!!!

ONE MONTH FROM TODAY I WILL BE GETTING MARRIED!!!

Oh man, I simply can not wait. Last night I could barely sleep cause I was just getting so excited!!!
I think the actual wedding day is gonna be a blast. I can't wait to boogie down with some of my favorite friends. It's gonna be quite a shin-dig!!

I am very excited. Lots of details left to work on, and yet they all seem so small and insignificant compared to what that day actually represents.

So, yeah I am really excited!!

Today I miss people:

I miss Rebecca and Jeff, Heather and Nathaniel (and Sebastian), Christine and Adam (and Gunnar and Chloe), Susan and Jason (and Luke), Sarah and Ray (and Jaden), Michelle and Charles (Jackson and new Brady!!), and Jay Reitz.

I miss Ryan Pappan, Bill Sperry and Jono and Erin Shaffer.

I miss Justin cause I am home from work and he still has two hours till he gets home.

It is interesting how at different points in ones life the people who they spend a lot of time with changes. I feel very thankful to have all the following folks as friends. I wish they were closer. Each of these people have sought to live their lives with integrity, which I admire and respect. I see that they are people who consistently desire growth and change in their lives. Boy, I just feel glad I know them.
