So Small

Sorry for being MIA yesterday — I had a big event yesterday, so I didn’t get lunch and didn’t get off until late last night, by which point I was way too exhausted to post!

For those of you who don’t know, I love country music. Don’t really know why — I grew up listening to classical and oldies. I have a bunch of favorites, but one song that I’ve been loving for a while is Carrie Underwood‘s “So Small.” Today I need that song. My best friend from college, who is (was?) one of the bridesmaids in my wedding just told me she can’t come. The list of people pulling out of the wedding is starting to feel like a landslide — she’s the third person out of the original seven. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a control freak, but this wedding is definitely making me learn to roll with the punches. Probably not a bad thing.

Which brings me back to the song. I am absolutely, totally heartbroken that my friend won’t be able to be at my wedding. I’m still wracking my brain trying to figure out a way to make this work. But I’m also trying really hard to be philosophical about this and all the other things that happen in the days leading up to our wedding. At the end of the day on June 19th, I will still be married to the most wonderful guy I’ve ever met. The person who is the very man I dreamed of during those college days when I used to wonder if I was ever going to get married. So I know it’s going to be ok; we’ll have to face a lot of things during our marriage, so starting out with some challenges isn’t the worst thing ever. And whatever happens, whoever can or can’t be there in person (I know they’ll be with us in spirit) on our wedding day, we’ll have each other and God. And that’s what really matters, huh?

  1. Congratulations! I wish you all the best.
    Ps: Stop worrying so much everything will be fine

  2. Thanks! Yeah…I am a worrier. It makes me good at my job, because I plan for every contingency, but it definitely makes my own wedding planning a little high stress!
