finally, the big day

My mom, Andrea, Ruby and I all went to the coolest salon to get ready for the big day. Andrea & I had our hair and make up done and Ruby ended up getting a little attention, too. We were just planning on letting her wear her hair down, to avoid any drama, but she LET them comb her hair, put a sparkly barrette in it, cover her scalp in glitter (?) and put a touch of blush and gloss on her for the pictures. This place had a whole room devoted to parties for little girls and Ruby had a field day in there. She actually took every. single. thing. out but I was too busy at that point to snap a picture.

I spoke earlier of what an awesome day this was, all around. Personally, I was so happy to feel so good and not tired the entire day. I really enjoyed it all and was so thankful for that. The reception was SO MUCH fun and we danced and danced and danced. I love dancing. I love seeing (almost) all of my family in one place having so much fun together. I love seeing my sister so happy. xoxooxoxox

p.s. A huge thank you to Andrea, my sister's friend & fellow bridesmaid, for the BEAUTIFUL shots of the ceremony that she let me share here! :)
