May 14, 2010 I picked up my wedding invitations. May 14, 2010 I was told I had a brain tumor. Invitations were not stuffed and have sat teasing me in mt dad's office since that day. Not to be dramatic but on May 14, 2010 I felt like my fairy tale, happily ever after, and dreams were being torn from me. My bridal shower was canceled within an hour or two of the new findings and my little heart just broke. I knew that I maybe could still get married and that it all could happen and I had a lot of hope but it was really hard for me. I didn't really like the word "could". We decided not to send the invitations to the wedding and decided we would just do inserts with a date change if I was cleared by the doctors to get married. We really did not have a time frame. It could have been a weeks, a month, a year, possibly more.Yesterday miracle after miracle after miracle occurred. My dad jumped over every hurdle and found a way for what we thought, was the impossible to become, a reality. He threw "could" out the window! To make an extremely long (but awesome and full of miracles) story (not short) but shorter... I am proud to announce that Josh and I will be married for FOREVER on JUNE 12, 2010 (that's this Saturday!)
Last night we were frantically trying to stuff some invitations. It was quite a site! We had half an army over here helping us get this ready by Saturday. Some of the labels may be on upside down and I don't know where we were putting half the stamps but we did get a lot done. We were hoping that some of the invitations make it in time but if they don't all the information is right here on that blessed picture above! You are all invited to come and celebrate the happiest day of my life! I am so excited to see you all! They are ordering me a huge nap that day so I can be rested and ready to party with my army! (In case you didn't know, I rather enjoy calling you my army. There is no way I could do this on my own!) So I will see you Saturday June 12, 2010 at 7:30! *my face is stuck in this silly smile...maybe that's why I can't sleep!
There is a list of things that we potentially may need help with in order to get this together by Saturday. My mother is in the process of forming that list. If you are interested in helping or have any ideas or thoughts you can contact her. firstname.lastname@example.org is probably your best bet just because her phone rings off the hook constantly anyway. Thanks so much! Ah I am so happy!
I will keep posting with further details!
And I thought I was happy the other day! Nothing compares to this feeling. I think having it potentially ripped away, has made it all the more special.
I am the luckiest girl in the whole entire world!
My Dreams Are Coming True!
I am a Princess.
