As I type the first part of this post I am sitting on an airplane heading toward Oklahoma City for my baby sister’s wedding.
I am excited, nervous and stressed all at the same time. And it’s not even my wedding!!!
I’m excited because I helped plan this wedding and did a bunch of it from another state. And because I’m the maid of honor (another sister, Maura, is the matron of honor). And because weddings are exciting.
I’m nervous because I don’t love to fly. I had to check two bags (one which has my dress and the wedding programs)! And because I want the wedding to go smoothly.
I’m stressed because it’s a wedding and there is a lot involved. I want this to be a great wedding for Janine.
I recently told someone that one of my most favorite things in the world is being a sister. I love it. I can’t imagine a life without my sisters. ALL of them. And so, as a sister, I worry about all the things that could go wrong.
The optimist in me says everything is going to run smoothly and everything will be perfect! I’m trying to listen to her and ignore the realist.
Update to follow after the wedding.
IT WAS WONDERFUL!
