"I think a honeymoon is when two people go to a place they really, really like for a few days. If they're not husband and wife they have to get married first. It's kind of like a date. I think you and Andy will do something like, maybe have fun...? I don't know."
I try to keep a straight face.
"Hey Britt, can't you just tell me what a honeymoon is?" She begged, adding, "I'm kind of sheltered, you know."

Janae (my niece and flowergirl) speaks often of "Beemoo's Wedding"... I think she's just a little eager to see her Beemoo get married... that, and for Janae to wear her pretty little white dress--as unfortunate as it is in her mind that it is not pink.
And I just got my flowers finalized. Yet another thing that gets crossed off my list.... and another thing that makes the whole big day seem more real and close and exhileratingly exciting. Strange how details being accomplished can excite a girl so much--"Yay! I'm getting married, my flowers are finalized!"
It's the wedding bug. It bites and you get a little.... weird.

Ahhh.... So true...
Add to that, it was a wonderful experience to be at a dear friend's wedding this past weekend. My joy for her and knowing it will be me soon increases my excitement to the third degree.
In 20 days we will pose for endless, countless pictures
In 20 days I will be surrounded by people I love who will celebrate the biggest joy of my life with me
In 20 days I will bid my parents goodbye to begin a family of my own.
9 more days until Andy comes home... 11 days after that we will become man and wife. The thrill is almost more than I can bear. Did I mention that I'm excited?

My adorable nephew, Alex, who did me the favor and learned how to walk recently. Can't wait to see him walk down the aisle with a ring pillow.
The goofiest of them all, my nephew (and second ringbearer), Landon

Fortunately this period of time came at a busy time for me. Our wedding is twenty-five days away and there should be plenty to do to occupy my time and make it go a little faster. But.... I find time inches along at a snail's pace and my hands accomplish the things on my endless to-do list much too quickly. It's a tragedy to look at my list now and find I have crossed off everything I wanted to do in three weeks in half that time.
