LJO to LJK: One Month to Go!!!

My Wedding

Typing the title of this post made my heart pound a little–I can’t BELIEVE this day is here and that one month from today, it’ll be my wedding day!!! The past few weeks have been a big mix of emotions, from the joy of my two amazing bridal showers, to the nerves of realizing how little time we have left to finish planning. More than anything in this last month, I want to enjoy this time. Being engaged is such a short and unique season, and I’m thankful that Dave and I have made so many memories over the last 16 1/2 months. My prayer for April is that it is happy, productive, and always focused on the sacrament we’re preparing for.

P.S. I’m going to split this month into two updates, so I’ll have another in two weeks!
