portugal


Greetings dear friends! 

I'm across the ocean and loving it. Europe is my safe haven, there is nothing better than good food, good wine and family. Today is my first day that I have actually been home doing nothing and relaxing, I know that there is a lot of sight seeing to be done but I needed a day to just recuperate. We have been driving all over the place these last few days seeing family and getting things done for the wedding. 

This is such an exciting time in my life, I get all teary eyed just thinking about it. Seeing my parents acting giddy and excited about their first child getting married is pretty amazing. I love that I am sharing this amazing experience with them. Brent arrives on Saturday and I am literally counting down the hours! I found a venue that will most likely be our wedding venue and I just can't wait for him to see it. It is everything that we have ever wished for and it works perfectly with our budget. 

I know us getting married in Portugal seems like a bit of a stretch, it seems like it will be expensive and in hindsight if you factor in all the flights people will have to pay for it technically is a bit out there but in reality it's just a fun vacation for everyone! I am so incredibly over joyed with the amount of support we have received from friends and family for doing the wedding here. If we didn't have this many people on board I don't think it would be possible. I am so grateful and so excited and I can't wait until Brent gets here so that he can get a taste of the excitement! 

I hope that you are all enjoying your week and just remember its almost the weekend! More updates will be on their way but for now I'm just enjoying this magical time with family.
