What kind of Flower are you?

You Are A Lily

You are a nurturer and all around natural therapist.

People see you as their rock. And they are able to depend on you.

You are a soothing influence. You can make people feel better with a few words.

Your caring has more of an impact than even you realize.

What kind of Chocolate are you?

You are Milk Chocolate

A total dreamer, you spend most of your time with your head in the clouds.

You often think of the future, and you are always working toward your ideal life.

Also nostalgic, you rarely forget a meaningful moment... even those from long ago.

Wedding Updates

Well, once again God has revealed to me how much I worry about things when I shouldn't. I guess I'm just the type of person who knows that God is in control, but doesn't understand why in the world He would want to bless me in great ways. So, long story short...

Not only did a timeshare open up, but it opened up in Cancun, Mexico, and because my dad is amazing he is letting us pay less money than we would have for flights to use his Frequent Flyer Miles which allow us to fly to Cancun FIRST CLASS!! It's unreal, one minute I'm stressing over what we're going to do for our honeymoon and then next minute everything has worked out even better than I'd imagined!

Also, it's looking like Dave will be able to officiate the wedding after all! All of the little details are coming together and planning this wedding has become fun again. God is amazing and has blessed Noah and I beyond what we could have hoped for! I'm sorry for not trusting Him more!

Wedding Stress

Lately I've been on the verge of an anxiety attack quite a bit, and it all surrounds the wedding! I know this is considered normal, however I have begun to feel like Murphey's Law has made a home for itself in my wedding plans.

Currently: we may have to find a new person to officiate the wedding (mind you this is the one of 4 people that we would have liked to do the wedding that was actually available to do it), my previous guitar teacher and dear friend who I was hoping would play guitar in my wedding will not even be able to attend my wedding (ouch), I was also hoping to have the violinist at my parent's church play but know that she will be attending another wedding, I personally know 3 other people who are getting married on the same day as me causing some people that were very important in my life to miss my wedding, neither one of my grandpas will be able to come to my wedding, as of right now Noah & I have NO place to honeymoon because apparently every timeshare (which is the only thing we can actually afford) is booked, and the list goes on...

I know I sound like a bridezilla, but really I don't feel angry...just sad and worried. I do recognize the blessings as well, like: getting the invitations I wanted for very cheap, finding affordable and adorable bridesmaids shoes (thanks Ginger!), and having a family who is doing everything they possibly can to help me in any way possible! I am truly blessed! And eventhough I stress, at the end of the day if I'm married to Noah, the most wonderful man I've ever known, I will be the happiest person in the world!
