Getting Ready






At the beach house. Nick had the bottom floor. I had the top. Downstairs was a fiesta. Ties were straightened. Last minute pow-wows with the officiant were had. Liquor, chuckles, and even a polish dog or two.

Upstairs I sat anxiously in my cave, wringing my hands and waiting for the big reveal. Wedding blogs don't prepare you for this. Amongst the buzz of hectic day-of preparations, my frantic pleas could be heard echoing down the stairwell.

"Can somebody bring me some whiskey? I need a shot, dammit!"

ha! :) I think it's going to be my brother's job to be sure the flask is full & handy.

I'm hoping that getting ready together (and having seen each others outfits a million times) will help with this. Because 6am feels a little early for a whiskey shot ;)

When I hollered for a drink, a kind friend sent me up a glass of vodka with a splash of cranberry. It did the trick.
