Today I was a princess.
My mother, stepmother and I went wedding dress shopping today. (yes, I know, all three of us and it was just great) The day started out very stressfully: saying goodbye to my best friend who is moving to California, getting lost and then being a half hour late for the dress appointment, etc... I picked out 5 dresses to try on, including one that I had seen in a magazine that was at this store. I put that dress on first and stepped up onto that platformy thing and that was it. I knew, mom knew, the salesperson knew. "The dress." Everybody told me you'll know it when you put it on and I knew. While I was still wearing it DF called to say hi and he said, "I don't know what you're wearing right now, but you're beautiful and I love you." That just about sealed the deal.
The whole day was so wonderful. It was a very emotional time for my Mom and I and I was so glad that we included my stepmom, who I am close to and my mom is friends with. She was so touched to have been asked to come and I couldn't think of more special people to have shared this occasion with. And then to come home and see my DF and know that this is my life......wow. I am a lucky girl.
I don't know how to post pics, but if anyone wants to see it: www.palomablanca.com and it's style 6516.
As you can tell, I'm pretty emotional today.
