30 day update
Well ladies.. It's officially 30 days until we depart YYZ!
I've felt like i've been on an emotional rollercoaster for around 300+ days and i've finally found my solace in these past few weeks. Everything is winding down and the trip is fast approaching. I'm feeling some bittersweet emotions already because I know that the day is so close and is going to go by so quickly. This wedding has really become my 'baby' and it's going to be hard to let it go once it's all over.
I don't have a whole lot left, but I am sorting out some last minute list items..
-Booking Appointments - I booked eyelashes, but still need to book waxing/nails and I need to start tanning (this weekend).
-Finalize music - We have downloaded most songs that we wanted, but still need to create our playlists and time them/organize them in the wedding DJ app.
-Finally emailed the videographer today with the music we want for our highlight video and I also gave him a few tips for what I wanted out of my video.
-Need to email the photographer and just triple check that he is in fact purchasing the sparklers for us.
-Need to finish sorting and organizing all of the items that we need to bring - also need to disperse items for friends to bring with them in their luggage.
WRITE VOWS! - This is a huge one for me. I'm having a really hard time with my vows and my speeches. It's a lot of pressure because the videographer will be dubbing these overtop of our video. Having some writer's block and also just having a hard time finding the words to say. This has been one of the hardest parts for me!!
So far for my vows this is what I have, but i'm planning to add and elaborate/change. It's sort of my 'shell' right now.
Because of you, I laugh, I smile, I dare to dream again. I look forward with great joy to spending the rest of my life with you, caring for you, nurturing you, being there for you in all life has for us.
I promise to encourage your compassion,
Because that is what makes you unique and wonderful.
I promise to nurture your dreams,
Because through them your soul shines.
I promise to help shoulder our challenges,
For there is nothing we cannot face if we stand together.
I promise to be your partner in all things,
Not possessing you, but working with you as a part of the whole.
I promise to always walk beside you in this crazy life.
Lastly, I promise to cherish and respect you through all the changes of our lives,
forever giving thanks that we found each other.
This is my sacred vow to you, my equal in all things
