It's very odd to me how that one moment, when Bryan was down on his knee saying those fateful 4 words, can change everything about how my brain works!
This strange phenomenon I'm sure is something that all women experience, but wedding consumes the brain and everything in life relates somehow to something that I'd never had to think about before.
-Driving home from dinner with friends, and all of a sudden there are 4 bridal stores I never noticed before. -Watching a movie with a 75th birthday party, and the table's centerpieces are what I'm focusing on through the drama while thinking "If I get a smaller version of that, it'd be great for the wedding."
There are many things to think about, but right now my brain is pretty much consumed with The Dress! Exactly one week from today, along with 4 women who are very special to me, I will be trying on wedding gowns for the first time!!
We will be dress shopping near my hometown just next weekend, but as the days go by it gets harder and harder not to stop in to David's Bridal and just "take a quick look" which I know will turn into, "oh I'll just try this One" which will turn into "so mom, I tried on 50 dresses yesterday, and I think I found one I really love."
And as much fun as that would be...I really do want to have my favorite ladies with me when I put on a wedding gown for the very first time!!!!
So in short..."Summer you need to go by slowly because I love the beach..., but next weekend needs to be here already!!!"
