Day 151

I love, love, love being married. It's awesome largely because I have the best (and dreamiest!) husband on the planet. Being engaged was pretty fun too because we had several wonderful celebrations during our wedding season, but planning a wedding is tough work. I did my best to breathe and enjoy the ride, but by the time we were picking chairs and table cloths for our reception, I exasperatedly called Richard and told him that he had to handle that detail, because I couldn't make any more decisions, no matter how small they were. (He did just fine with the chairs, too.)

Over the past few weeks, though, I've learned that co-planning a shower to celebrate your best friend is less stressful than planning a magical wedding. That's what I've been doing, and I don't have any decision fatigue!

I'm heading up to New York for the weekend, with the shower on Saturday. Planning the games has been my favorite part because they are so silly and fun! When Ariel was my maid of honor, she planned several fun games and activities, and doing the same for her has helped me remember what a great time we had and how much fun being engaged was when I wasn't worried about some minute wedding detail. Being married is like that, too; it's fun when I don't sweat the small stuff. But when I do sweat it, Richard is patient and kind and helps me figure out the next steps. (Mental note to self: try to worry less and have fun more often!)

Ariel and me at my bridal shower in North Carolina! She and Robin did an amazing job planning a lovely event.
I'm so excited to meet some of Ariel's friends from New York and spend some time together this weekend! I love a good excuse to celebrate good people in love, and one of these people happens to be one of my favorites in the whole world.

Something that made today great: I ate even more bowls of Lucky Charms than I did yesterday!
Time I woke up: 9:00 am...oops. Guess I needed it.
