Today the roles get reversed. It was nearly 3 years ago that I put on the white dress, and you stood next to me as I married the man of my dreams. But today? Today is all about you. You get to step into your beautiful white dress in just a few hours, and then before you know it you'll be holding dad's arm, walking towards your groom... Nothing can prepare you for that amazing moment. For the start of it all.
I'll never forget the night you first told me about Dan last summer. The excitement in your voice; it was unlike anything I'd ever heard from you before. And as you spent hours telling me about this man you'd met in California, I knew. No questions asked. This man you were describing was the one who would steal your heart. The man God had made just for you.
Today is going to fly by. A string of little moments and lots of emotions. And when the day is done, you will go to sleep as a WIFE. As Dan's wife. You'll be married to your best friend. And your whole lives will be ahead of you. Years full of adventure and happiness. Good times and hard times. Learning and growing. And loving, more than anything, loving.
Nobody ever said marriage was easy, but without a doubt it is the most beautiful, amazing, and rewarding thing. And I'm so beyond excited that today you get to start your marriage journey with Dan.
I'm not prepared, in the slightest, for you to move to Wisconsin. I already miss you just thinking about the distance. But knowing that you've got such an amazing man to protect you, care for you, and love you, helps make it a tiny bit easier to let go.
I love you SO SO SOOOO much, and I can't even begin to say how happy I am to share this day with you.
CHEERS to the start of Happily Ever Forever!
Your Little Sister
