And Now a Word From the Maid of Honour

When I heard of Kim and Derek’s engagement, I think that I almost started to cry!!  I was so happy for them and SO excited for the actual wedding!!  I had a permanent smile on my face while listening to the story of that amazing moment between the two of them, I think that my heart melted… (kudos to Derek).  I have never known of two people more perfect for each other than Kim and Derek.  The kind of love and respect that they have for each other is truly amazing and something that everyone should hope to have one day.  I am thrilled that both Kim and Derek asked me to be a part of their special day. I have known Kim for over 10 years and she has been the best friend that anyone could ever ask for.  When she asked me to be her Maid of Honour, I swear I almost leaped across the table and kissed her!!!!

Within hours, I was on the internet googling ANYTHING and EVERYTHING possibly related to weddings.   I am taking this MOH thing serious and thought that I would brush up on the responsibilities and duties that I would have to do.  But, I have discovered over the last few weeks, that Kim and Derek are two of the most organized people I will EVER meet.  I have no doubt in my mind that I will not have to deal with any “Bridezilla” issues… (boy, did I ever luck out :)).

I think that Kim has picked a great group of ladies to stand beside her and share in her special day.  We all have amazing relationships with Kim and wish her nothing but the best.  With so many great friends, we should be able to treat Kim to some fun “remember when stories” over the next few months.

The count down is on… I am soooooo excited.



My Girls

I have chosen my bridal party, and they have all accepted…whew.  I feel grateful that everyone was excited to be part of our day.

Erica is my maid of honour.  We have been friends since ninth grade, so to me she was the obvious choice for this job. I know she’ll be perfect.

The bridesmaid’s are Johanna, Jennifer and Amy.  Johanna, my soon to be sister-in-law, has been a great friend for nearly as long as I’ve known her brother.  In terms of quality, Jen’s friendship is top of the line.  I’m thankful that she and her family are part of our lives.  Amy is a long time friend, and is the reason Derek and I met in the first place – thanks Amy!

I will also have two princesses leading the way down the aisle: Alexia and Karylton.  Alexia is my beautiful 9 year old cousin, and Karylton is the only 3 year old I know that can sit still for a mani/pedi – how could I not choose these two girls to start the ceremony.

I am very much looking forward to having these wonderful ladies by my side.
