Hey Everyone ...
Just as I wrote my thoughts down before I fell asleep the night before the wedding - I did the same the second I woke up on my wedding day.
My girlfriend Shelly had slept with me that night but was already up. A few of my other girls were also upstairs. I could hear them laughing - just as excited about this day as I was. While I could hear them and feel all the love around me - for those few moments - I was alone with my thoughts. Here they are.
Thoughts when I woke up on my wedding day .... 4/22/12
I woke up this morning with such a clear mind. No nerves. No stress. No regrets. Nothing but pure joy. I think I even have a few butterflies. The same ones I used to get when Doug would pull into my driveway when we first started dating. The same ones I stil feel from time to time when I walk in the door and Doug is standing in our kitchen making me dinner ;-)
Most would say my life isn't really changing much today. It's a piece of paper. I know that, but at the same time, it is. Today I make the most beautiful commitment to the most beautiful man I have ever known.
As I sit here alone in my thoughts with a few of my best girls upstairs....I could not be more over joyed. I'm actually shedding a few tears!
Today is going to be the best day of my life.
