Today's been a tough one for me and not to be a Debbie Downer but the girl that was killed on highway 2A by Okotokes was a friend of mine. It's just been a big reminder to me to not stress about all the little wedding details and just appreciate those important people in my life because it can all be over in a second. I'm so excited for a wedding away because I really feel like I'm making the most of it and living life to the fullest with all the people I love!

OMG!!! I honestly hadn't heard about the accident at all but I am so, so, so sorry that it was a friend of yours! That's just terrible!! I've had friends killed in car accidents so I kind of know what you're going through. Don't at all apologize for having a bad day either, it's totally legit and we're all here if you need to talk or anything.

 

And you're right that having experiences like that sure make you appreciate what you've got. Go home and give FI an extra big hug and kiss tonight for sure.grouphug.gif

So Sorry about your loss. Those kinds of things definitely put things in to perspective!

 

I had one of those "aha" moments when we had some stresses at the beginning of our planning. I was in tears because the date of our wedding changed (really though, who cares after ten years together!). Then a good friend of ours was diagnosed with the worst kind of brain cancer you can have...a month after he got married.

 

Always always appreciate the ones you love.

 

Hugs out to you Krama.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Life happens so quickly we just have to enjoy it while it's here and not sweat the small stuff...like me today HATING my TA she's awful, but really, what does it all matter anyway, not a lot. your post was very inspiring even though it was bad news.

This is so true, we all need to cherish every moment we have and not sweat the small stuff. I am so so so sorry to hear about your friend. My thoughts are with you and we are here if you need to talk.

Just like kerrij said, your post was inspiring even though it was upsetting.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
