MY RUN: My Workout today was a quick run after work. I decided to do 4 treadmill miles since it was gloomy outside. I watched Friday Night Lights on Netflix during the run. Love that show
Anyways, I hope you are having a wonderful start to the week so far. February gets me in the spirit of Romance. I decided to continue recapping one of the most romantic days of my life- My Wedding Adventure. Right where I left off.. "The Rehearsal Dinner"
Sitting down to write my wedding recap is therapeutic in a way. I love reliving the most amazing day of my life. It brings back so much joy, I can feel all the emotions as if it were yesterday- excitement, relentless, happiness, joy, energy, desire, love, anxiousness, peace, ...all the emotions surrounding the day my best friend became my husband. What a great Day!
We decided to have the rehearsal dinner at a Cuban restaurant we discovered a few months prior. It was a few miles from the church we were practicing at and seemed to fit the bill, so to speak.
Bryan and I both decided to give out our bridal party gifts at the dinner. Mine were very DIY. I wanted them to be personal to each bridesmaid.

After dinner Bryan and I wanted to do something out of the box so we took everyone on a 1block walk to Sloan's Ice cream Parlor. It was meaningful because it was where Bryan and I first shared our first Brownie Ice cream sundae the night we met.

I went back to my condo that night with my friend and bridesmaid Sarah. I couldn't imagine having slept alone that night- she was so supportive and got everything ready for the girls to come over at 5am the next morning while she sent me off to bed for my beauty sleep. I am so lucky to have such amazing friends!
