I have dreaded writing this post. How do I say thank you and goodbye to so many wonderful people? How can I possibly express to you how much your wonderful comments and amazing support has meant to us over the last 20 months? I can't, so all I will say is thank you all so very very much.
We started this journey seven years ago, when my freshman hallmate asked me to come meet the boy she liked. We first talked about getting married five months later, early on a Sunday morning, by saying something like, "y'know, I know this sounds really weird, but unless something...weird...happens, I can really see us getting married."
I will also warn you that it is possible that the events of your wedding weekend will be stressful and overwhelming and that there will be moments that you are annoyed at your loved ones, your fiance, and your hotel for sticking you in a room with a damp carpet the night before your wedding. None of this matters, because on your wedding day your sister will wake up and ask you if you want to jump on the bed yelling, "I'm getting married today!!!" Which you should do.
See you on the other side! This week, while we are off honeymooning, I've scheduled a few "Classic W42" posts from the archives that I think still ring true. Enjoy and I'll see you in a week!
