The Update

I haven’t mentioned much on here about this upcoming ceremony, but I just wanted to take a few moments to share some updates. At first, I was very resistant to the whole process of putting in so much time, money, and effort into an event that I really did not even initially want; yes, I was excited for the marriage, but not so much for the details of an extravagant week of events. This led to frustration for my mom, who just wanted to be excited and involved, and for others around me who wanted nothing more than to celebrate my love story. When I realized that tradition means so much to our families and friends and will make them so happy, I decided I might as well go about it with a smile on my face…and ended up bonding with family, finding joy in each simple step, and feeling productive the more I accomplished. 

As the big day comes closer and the final details begin to fall into place, the excitement kicks in and reality begins to set in. On the surface, nearly everything in my life will be changing- and anyone who has been in my shoes can understand the inevitable nerves that come along with this. However, the moment I remind myself of who and what I am doing this for, I am overtaken by comfort at the thought of love for my new family. No matter where I go and what I do, my faith is always with me and the Now is always my home, so it’s silly not to know deep down that everything will be okay.
