Today is my day!!!

The wedding day has finally come! I am so excited. I slept at my mom's house in her bed, which made for an interesting night because it is not my normal thing to do, but I was up bright and early ready to go! We are going to get ready for the day and head over to my grandparents for breakfast and then I will do my mom's hair and make-up and she will take me to my cousin's salon to get all dolled up then it is off to the wedding!

I just have to say it is going to be kind of sad for this wedding stuff to end. I have had a great time planning all of this and finding fun ideas to make my wedding unique. The past couple of days have been so great, it has been like a party. We have seen all of the family that has come in for our special day and it is really nice to have a little bit of time to visit with them. Even though we are busy running from family to family I guess at least we brought them all here so they can see each other as well. Stephen's family is awesome, I was going to say especially his parents but it doesn't just stop there, it is all of them. They are just such warm, loving, and welcoming people, I am very lucky! Oh and I am getting a niece out of this marriage! I always thought to become an aunt my brother's would have to start having kids but that is not the case. Madelyn is 5 and is so stinking smart and cute! She and my sister are going to be flower girls together and they have totally hit it off and can't wait to be matching later today when they hit the salon with me! Overall this has been a great experience and the time of my life! I will have a lot of great memories from the planning and now the memories from later today!

The best part of this is that I get to marry Stephen. He has helped me to be the best version of myself and taught me what love really is. I can't imagine my life without him, and now we get to show that to our family and friends today! I am getting teary eyed just thinking about it! I can't wait to see his face when he sees me for the first time in my dress! It is going to be a great day!

Tomorrow we are headed to San Diego for our 6 day honeymoon! Until next time - Ms. Child soon to be Mrs. Reed!
