....Many times I take advantage of my family (like go over to their house 5/7 times a week to eat dinner) and forget to sit down and really thank them for everything they have done for me. Not only did they make that entire day/experience the best, they make every day the best. Last night for instance, Erik and I were once again at my parents house eating dinner, and somehow we ended up reinacting all of the best scenes from the movie Grease. It included singing, dancing, acting, some tears, and many loud voices. I have the best family in the world. And soon the 2 lovebirds on the left will be getting married themselves. Yippee!!
And then I thought of my new family. Oh my new family. They are just about the funniest people. You will never have a boring moment around them. I also love how much they care about me and that is not a recent development. They have been that way since I was 12. They were family before Erik and I got engaged and I am so happy that I am now officially part of their family.
...I am the luckiest because I don't get just one new family, I get TWO. These people are the most generous, kind, loving people I know. And I have only known them a few months. They accepted me right in to their close family without any problems. I can not wait to spend Christmases, Thanksgivings, summers and many other times with my new mom, Malcolm, Grandpa Andy and Grandma Lois! You guys are the best.
Thanks to all you guys who supported us! We had a blast and the day wouldn't have been the same without you!
...Oh my girls. My day would have been nowhere near the same if it weren't for you. First, my sisters: they helped me with everything from day one. From the dress to the flowers to the bridal shower and the honeymoon help. You girls are awesome and I love you. Second, the greatest best friends in the whole world: Dana, Janell, and Karissa. Even though two of you were in Utah half the time it was so nice to be able to talk to you in the middle of chaos and have you calm me down. Second grade was when our friendship began and it was great with you guys there. Thank you! (And a special shout out to Dana who helped with the disaster of the sign-in book). and last but not least: Kelly. Kelly my maid of honor I love you so much! You are my best friend and I couldn't have done any of it without your love and support. Thank you!
...There are two important men in my life. Just because I'm married it doesn't make me any less of a daddy's girl. This is the greatest man that I know. He has the biggest heart (even though he tries to be intimidating) and was one of the reasons my day was everything I wanted it to be. He will always be my pappy and I love him so much!!
...And then Disneyland!! That is my favorite place in the whole world!...
He was such a trooper and wore the hats I have been wanting since I was like 5. Our honeymoon was the greatest ever! 9 days of pure fun!
If you made it this far congrats. Sorry it was so long but it was fun!
