Wow!  I looked at my calendar today and realized that Brian and I have 23 days until our big day is here!!  I almost can't believe it!!!  I'm amazed to see how everything just seems to be coming together and how supportive and helpful so many people are.  A special shout out to all of you. (You know who you are!!)

Well, the dress and tux are arranged for, honeymoon confirmed, invitations are out (if you didn't get one, consider the one posted yours), housing is set, and now we're just finishing up the little details to make our reception beautiful.... okay my mom and sisters have really been heading that up.  (When it comes to small details, I'm totally the wrong person to talk to.  Creativity is NOT one of my gifts.)

Shortly after we got engaged a friend of mine gave me a list of many of the things that are typically done prior to getting married.  As I initially looked at it I was so overwhelmed, even though it was broken down into smaller time tables (four months, three months, two, one, two weeks, one week, day of... you get the point).  I looked at this list again recently as was so relieved to see that we are right on schedule, even a bit a head.  What a blessing it has been to have so many talented people in our lives who are willing to help with the little (yet important) things.

 It's been fun to countdown to our big day and anticipate being with current and meeting new family and spending time with them.  I can hardly believe how quickly it's all coming now - although sometimes it still feels like forever away!  Well, thanks for all of your love support and help, and maybe I'll more pictures and other cool stuff to share in the future. :)  Until then, thanks ya'll and I can hardly wait to see ya at the wedding!
