The waiting is over. The days will pass more quickly than I could imagine. And soon, Saturday will be here.
Planning for a ‘fairy tale’ takes a lot of work – and, to be honest, I’ve been a just a very small part of the tremendous effort and work that has taken place! Jeff and Jamie have taken to see to all the details, all the ins and outs; the tasting and testing; looking and booking; planning for the bridesmaid who didn’t know she would have TWIN BOYS when Jamie and Jeff were engaged and asked her to be in the wedding, to who and where everyone would stay and for how long. We are so proud of them!
Jeff is amazing. With his Green Bay Packer gusto, he has worked amazingly hard – not just at his job that took him away for a lot of the summer (we love our construction men in Alaska – NO where is “close”!!) and now that the construction season is winding down, he has been helping with all the last minute details with the graciousness of a true gentleman. I love how he respects and honors our daughter . I admire how important family is to him. I admire how hard he works in his profession. I am glad it does not go unnoticed by just me, either!
Jamie called this morning on her way to work asking if I had ever heard of any thing to do for ‘S-L-E–E-P’……we laughed and said – it’s called “after the wedding (and NOT the honeymoon!!) I love to hear her laugh, even though she is exhausted. It fills me with joy and the knowledge that everything will be as it is to be.Excitement is in the air. Her matron of honor arrived just after midnight last night, and the rest of the crew and babies later in the week. I know she is harried, but she is Jamie – she ALWAYS gets things done! What Jamie does is ALWAYS classy and PERFECT and Saturday her “fairy tale” that we have all been waiting for will come true!
Well done Jamie and Jeff – we can’t wait for Saturday!!
