To Do: Get Married!

To Do: Get Married!

As Rob said yesterday: it’s the beginning of the beginning!

In just a few hours, our wedding and vacation officially start. Guests are coming into town from all over the country. We’re getting well wishes from co-workers, friends and readers. People are offering to help left and right. And I appreciate it all!

It’s been amazing sharing the wedding planning process with you. From the first happy announcement to the stressful search for a venue to the last little details, you’ve helped me to celebrate and plan each step of the way. Now all that hard work is going to pay off big time.

I promise to share all sorts of details from the wedding and the “Tour of the Great American West” when I’m back in four weeks with my new last name. Jordan will probably post a few details from the big day next week and my friend may guest blog here occasionally.

Until then: a million thanks for everything and happy trails to you!

    Best wishes to both you and Rob! And thank you for sharing so much of your life and plans. I cant believe you are still blogging less than 48 hours before your wedding. Amazing!

    My favorite quote, not necessarily a wedding quote, that makes me think of and hope for a future filled with promise:

    “Remember tonight, for it is the beginning of always”

    A traditional Irish blessing for your wedding/marriage:

    May God be with you and bless you;
    May you see your children’s children.
    May you be poor in misfortune,
    Rich in blessings,
    May you know nothing but happiness
    From this day forward.
