Do I have the personalized hair bows?
I cannot forget my engagement ring, or make up. That would be bad.
Do I have the bag of snacks? drinks? bribes?
Where's my speech? Is it good enough? Will they laugh? cry? GULP...stay silent?
It's here, the day before my sister gets married.
Her rehearsal dinner is but a few hours away. The planning, the chaos, and the tears have been shared. The final fitting of the dress over, as I learned how to tighten the corset and bustle the train. We're all ready.
It's time for the fun stuff now, the stuff that makes the memories.
It's time for little girls in their dresses and party shoes.
It's time for the vows and the rings.
It's time for the wow as she walks in,
the shared smile as they see each other for the first time,
and the kiss to seal the deal.
It's time to reminisce with the extended family we don't see nearly enough.
It's time to share a drink or two or three with the friends we've known since childhood.
All too happen the everyday gets in the way. Work, schedule, routine, and conflicts make their voices known, preventing us from that promised dinner out or visit. Everyday life happens and it's so easy to get swept up in the montony. However on days like this, it gives us all a reason to pause, to make an effort to enjoy the moment.
It's time to celebrate!

It's #GoodThingsThursday at the Little White Whale.
What's 'gooder' than a wedding?
