You know how sometimes you can anticipate that you’re going to be nervous? Like before giving a speech or let’s say … get married in front of about 75 people. Well, even though I’d been pretty even keeled up to that point - I knew that nervousness would show up right before. Like … right before.
As my mom and I were waiting for our cue to start walking, my heart started pounding and I was a little short of breath. Holy shit. This is really happening. I am actually going to say vows to the man I’ve been sharing my life with for the past nine years. I was really excited but also just the thought of being in front of all of those people was a little nerve wracking.
Thank god I had my mother there with me. I don’t know how I would’ve done it without her. After my strict instructions to her on not crying, she went into mom mode and just made it all better. She helped calm me down and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else to share that aisle with me.
BTW - did you see the back of my mom’s dress? Hello! My mom was looking hot!
Once I got up there, it all just became okay. There we were, in the blistering heat (100 degrees … seriously), and all I could think was, This is our time.
To me, it was perfect. And that’s all a girl can ask for.
