i reallyyyy wanted to have a big breakfast the morning of because i knew i wouldn't eat much all day but when your body is that excited and your happy nerves are dancing all over the place i knew i would be lucky if i got two bites down. and i was right.
even though breakfast was a complete fail i believe these two things are what truly saved me (and maybe the panera bagel i inhaled around lunch time). i have never drank so much water in one day EVER.
and since i am currently sitting in the airport about to board the plane for our honeymoon, i only have time for a couple actual wedding pictures! i will have lots of love posts coming soon though i promise!
before the ceremony...
and after a day filled with smiles, laughter, tears, drinks, dancing, hellos, good byes, and manyyy fun reception activities...a peaceful morning with my husband which filled my heart with joy.
so far so good. it was a very exciting but stressful nine months and i'm looking forward to some time away with nick. but before we take off i'd like to leave you all with a piece of marriage advice (ya know...since i've only been married, what, 40 hours...)
actually, this piece of advice is from my mom which she gave to me in a letter she wrote for me to open on the morning of our wedding day and it is that as long as you love one another and love deeper and deeper every single day, you will be happy no matter what.
while love can seem like a complicated thing, i was reminded that it really doesn't have to be as long as we love and give a lot of it all of the time. it is watching my parents all of these years and reading her words that morning that helped me realize this and i will carry it with me always. let love be the center of everything you do. not just in marriage, but in all your life.
