THE Dress (No Pictures!)

So....I was notified yesterday that my wedding dress has arrived! I received a message last night that it's been 14 days and "at this point" they need to hear from me or else "the dress will be returned to home office". Wow. That's nuts, considering I've never been contacted that my dress had arrived. Also, I was told when I purchased the dress (which is paid in full, by the way) that it wouldn't be delivered until March. But it's here. Now.

Am I excited about this? Yes. But I haven't had time to mentally prepare for it. I know that sounds weird, but I've been thinking about it and talking about it since it was purchased and now it's really real. I will, as of tonight, have in my possession, the dress I will wear when I marry the man of my dreams, the love of my life. It's real.

Not that, you know, it wasn't before. But as we slowly start collecting "stuff" for our wedding, I look at the piles and know that it's really going to happen. People are going to gather to celebrate our love with us, and we will be legally husband and wife. I will take his name. We will be bound in the eyes of the government and the Gods of the Sea. It's pretty awesome.

And also, I'm worried that I might put it on everyday until September 14th. I have to exercise self-control. At least after this week...a girl does need some time to twirl in her pretty dress, right?

Twirl away, and allow the fullness of the joy of your love to be the music! There are no rules except to be happy. Blessings honey!

IT LOOKS SO PRETTY!!! I can't wait.

Jess, yes-it's in a non see through garment bag in my closet, which Brian does not go into. Even if he were, he'd only see a big garment bag. And I know he doesn't want to see it, so I don't worry about him peeking!!
