Oh my goodness! I can not believe it has been 70 days already! Some days it feels like I only just begun, but the. I think back to 70 days ago and see how far I've come and it makes me so happy that I took this journey. 4 things I have learned...
1. I AM BEAUTIFUL!
2. I AM STRONG!
3. IT'S OK FOR ME TO BE CONFIDENT!
4. I DON'T NEED ANYONE ELSE TO TELL ME I'M BEAUTIFUL!
This has been an incredible journey and I am so thankful for everyone who has followed me through it. Your encouraging words, prayers, goodies and friendships have truly helped make this a pleasurable experience.
Now onto what I promised last night, my speech and more pictures. For my speech, I decided I should tell the groom a little bit more about his wife and how we were as teenage girls...young and stupid. We would walk 3 miles to the corner store to buy Jones Soda and candy cigarettes and then walk home smoking our "cigarettes" and drinking our Jones Sodas, which were being cleverly hidden in brown paper bags. :) Like I said, we were young and stupid, but we definitely had some fun times. And then I ended with saying "And Ben, take care of her. Cause if you don't, I WILL HURT YOU." And since everyone laughed, I think it turned out ok :) So, here are more pics
