    I can’t believe that it is already time for me to post this! We leave on Saturday and it seems like just yesterday I had over a year to go!

    I just want to begin by thanking Tammy for creating this forum in the first place and all of her hard work running it (and thanks to all the MODs too!). I don’t know where I would be without BDW!!! Thank you also to everyone else on the forum for sharing your ideas and advice! I’ve gotten so much inspiration from you all and I’ve met some truly amazing people on here. With that I also want to say that I’m sorry if I haven’t credited specific people for certain ideas, everyone here is so creative and sometimes I can’t keep all the great ideas straight!!!

    ***I apologize in advance for some of the picture quality, unfortunately I’m a horrible photographer!***

    So to start here is our story (it was a really long post, be warned if you want to read it, lol):
