woke up this morning...

to find my parents house empty. This was odd on many fronts. Afterall, now that Carmi is officially in town, I have four fabulous girls plus parents plus me here in the house....so the fact that it was just me when I woke up....crazy..
But, I suppose I'll take this opportunity to clue in my blog, bless its heart. I've neglected it. ;-) Four day until the wedding. I'm very excited about marrying Brett. Really, I've probably never looked forward to something so much, and now that its literally upon us, I'm even MORE excited and delighted.

Yesterday I spent the day with Brett's family. I finally got to meet Brett's oldest brother Tim and his wife Amber and their adorable son Levi. Adorable honestly doesnt even cut it. He was just that cute. But, along with that meeting I also got to meet Brett's cousin Trevor and his wife Rhonda and their three boys ( also a bundle of absolute fun) as well as catch up with Brett's Aunt Johnetta and Uncle Cleo and have more time with Brett's mom and step dad and Josh ( middle brother :-) )......and I think Brett was there too. But, I felt like I didnt get to see him all day! But, I suppose since I got to talk about him to so many people that love him almost as much as I do...it was still a great day. In fact, I'd have to say it all went waaaay better than my dreams the night before predicted. hehehe. Nothing like anxiety dreams about meeting your new extended family. :-P

...

I don't even know what to say! There is so much going on in my head right now!!
I'm not even going to try. Maybe one day soon I will be able to express the bitter and much sweetness of this time. It has truly been a gift from God. And I have a feeling the next few days will only be building upon blessings.

I know you must be crazy with all the wedding plans the next few days, but I just wanted to stop by and say that I am so happy for you. I think you've found an amazing guy (with an amazing family) and I know that you two will have many years of wonderful wedded bliss! I know I'm not your mom, or your older sister, or even an aunt, but I just can't help but feel so proud of you! I know that's cheesy, but I truly feel that way. You are an amazing person. I spent a few minutes today praying for the wedding that all will go well and you will have an easy, stress-free, beautiful day that day. Blessings on you!

dear abbey, one day to your big day! hugs in my physical absence. i am just thinking this morning that you are one of those people whom i am immensely happy whenever i think about, and whenever blessings are showered upon you. probably a sliver of what God thinks, too.
enjoy your day, and all that is to come!
