1 Week Left

I have one week left before I take off to Hawaii. God, it seems like it's been forever. At the same time, I feel like I could use more time. I understand now why brides get so psycho.

I had a wonderful bridal shower/bachelorette shower last night, thrown by two of my friends...Laurie and Christine. It was a small group of us, and we had plans to go dancing... but instead, we just hung out and talked! It was perfect. Feeling lucky to have such great people around me.

Anyway, I think I'm acting pretty normal, but then again, I had a mini-breakdown today. I think it's because it is such a weird time. I am stressed because I want to make sure that everyone is going to have fun in Hawaii, that everything will get done, that we won't forget anything... but I know I can't control those things. I need to chill out. I think that I am pretty chilled out, but then again, my mind won't stop racing. What a cluster.

How do I stop to enjoy it?

Here's how you stop to enjoy it:

You force yourself to do it.

When you feel things getting hectic, slow down. Force yourself to take ten minutes to sit down and eat a cookie or watch the wind blow the tree limbs. Then go back to what you were doing.

Did you say eat a cookie? Kidding... Thanks, Jason... I'll try to remember your advice this week.

Perhaps you need to think


I think it would be hard not to and provides a better teaser for your mind.

Best Regards,

I agree. Who in their right mind wouldn't have fun in Hawaii (pronounced "How're ya?" by my grandma)?

You already got some from me, but remember, it is your and Jim's day. There will be snafus that appear to be overwhelming at the time on your special day, however, they will be the things you two laugh about in the years to come.

The main thing to remember is that you are about to embark on a lifetime journey with the man you love.....what else could a girl want.

Have a joyous time in Hawaii. I wish you enough, Michelle.

I can't wait to call you this week. We just got back and missed you BIG time last weekend. You and Jim are going to have the time of your lives...I know just how you are feeling. Best advice: you just have to remember to be present in the moment. :) KS
