Bachelorette Bliss

Today was the best day. My closest friends picked me up this morning, took me to Hot Springs and we all enjoyed a Spa Day. We got massages, facials, and a foot detox. Then we had a private yoga & meditation session. It was soooo nice. Exactly what I needed. But that was only Phase 1. When we got back from Hot Springs, my friends blindfolded me and took me to “Phase 2,” which I had no idea and for the life of me couldn't figure out what else they had planned. Once they were sure I was lost, they led me into the doorway of my house, which they had decorated while I was gone and set up a table of fruits, dips, chips, etc., complete with a penis shaped cake (which provided jokes for some of the night). It was absolutely the best. It was much more laid back than a bar-party, and so much nicer. It was exactly what I needed! (Oh, and did I mention Petey? The inflatable, smiling penis hanging from my chandelier? Yeah, Petey provided the other jokes for the evening!) It was absolutely fabulous and I could not have asked for a better time. :)

Tonight, as I lay in bed thinking about all of this - reflecting, if you will - I realized something that I totally did not think about before. I'm actually thankful for the drama surrounding our wedding and for the disappointments that we've faced. Why? Well, I've realized that I have become more and more sure of myself and our relationship over the past few months. I've always known Mikey was the right one for me, but here lately, as our relationship has been tested these past couple of months, I am absolutely sure. In a way, I think it's made us stronger as a couple. Yet it's also made me realize that the wedding of my dreams is not a big, elaborate ordeal; it's being able to say that I am married to the one I love. It's not about whether we have a sit-down dinner or a cake-and-punch reception. I'd marry him tomorrow even if nobody showed up. And I realize now that that is the most important thing.
