The next nervous step | Illinois Newborn Photographer

The next nervous step | Illinois Newborn Photographer

So, I'm about a month away from my wedding. I'm nervous. I think about my wedding day. I get emotional. I tear up. alot.

I'm not nervous that things wont be perfect. I'm not nervous to spill anything on my dress (well, okay that would bum me out) I'm nervous that the day will go by so fast, and I will be so overwhelmed with the days events that I wont have a moment to take it all in. I'm nervous for Ben to see me walking down the aisle for the first time. I'm nervous that I will cry too much. the. whole. day. I'm already holding back tears writing this out. ughh. I wish these nerves would go away. I'm nervous that Ive picked a song for the father/daughter dance that is too personal and I will just sob the entire time. I'm nervous about moving out of my house, my childhood home. I'm nervous for what awaits in my future. My future that has taken forever to get here and now that its here, I'm nervous to take this next step. I know these feelings are all valid and that everyone must feel this way in this stage of life. This is the part of growing up thats unfamiliar but we all find ourselves in this scary stage of life.

So, for right now I'm a nervous wreck. In about a month, I wont be so nervous though. I will have a wonderful man standing at the end of that aisle looking down nervously at me, ready to face this next step of life.
