A 4-Week Countdown

4 weeks left of being single, 4 weeks left of wedding planning, 4 weeks left of sleeping in my own bed. There are a lot of things that could be in the "4 weeks left". I am more excited about the "4 weeks until". 4 weeks until I am married, 4 weeks until I get to see my wedding come together, 4 weeks until I have a new last name, 4 weeks until we go to NYC, 4 weeks until I gain a whole new family, and more!

This week has been rough. Between school, work, wedding, and life I have stretched myself pretty thin and I have started getting burned out. Then Daniel puts his arm around me and tells me only 4 more weeks and I am instantly calmed down.

One of the things I am most excited about being married is that it is no longer me and you but it is we. We get to be our own little unit and we get to make our own decisions, we get to be in our very own place, we get to depend on each other for everything. I have decided that the "we" is going to be the best part about marriage.

4 weeks, 4 weeks, 4 weeks!

A Trip to the Happiest Place

Last January we went to Disney Land and ran a half-marathon. We were instantly hooked on Run Disney races. We looked up the next race and it happened to be on Kacey's birthday in Disney World. Of course, we jumped right on it!

Luckily, this time around Daniel got to join in the fun. He had never been to Disney World and we were excited to show him around one of our favorite places! We went a few days before the race to make sure we had plenty of time for all the parks! We did the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Universal, Harry Potter World, and Hollywood Studios!

My cute friends the Welch's from London are working in Disney World. I was so happy I got to spend some time with Bre!

The race was Saturday night. It was a 10-mile Tower of Terror run. The entire course was decorated in Halloween with all the disney villains out and about! Every person in our family did it! Allie pushed herself in her wheelchair while the rest of us ran alongside her! It was the perfect end to a fabulous trip!

I love that my family is able to do so many fun things together and that now we get to add one more to our little crew!
