how to not stress over a wedding

24 Sep

make it all about you

fortunately, for ROF and i, that wasn’t hard.  it wasn’t about all the little things, it was about the sum of all those things.  today, is our one year anniversary.  you know what surprised me?  it wasn’t “the hardest year of my life” it was fantastic. 

the whole weekend was magical! 

full of family we love, friends we love, steak dinners at mortons, showers at neiman marcus cafe, parties in the penthouse of the joule, bus rides to bbq place with live band, drinks and of course…bbq.  then a sunday brunch at our house to top it off.

i look back on that time and think about all the work my mom and sister put into the weekend as well as my wonderful aunts and can’t tell you how much i appreciate them.  i think about all the planning ROF did and i feel blessed.  i remember how wonderful it was to have susan, mike and michael all together with us.  loved having good friends chris and mark geiger, paul and kelly moser and of course the bolners (who cooked breakfast tacos on sunday) be with us.  what great memories.  and…

what a year! (click on pictures to enlarge)
