Magical Moments


My memorable moments are when i woke up the morning and realised that this is it. We were waiting so long for this. It was a very emotional day because both my parents are in heaven so i tried very hard not to cry. I remember my best friend brought me coffee in bed and the day started. The hairdresser stressed more than me and then she made me 30 minutes late. It didnt put me off, i stayed focussed. When i got dressed and when i went down the stairs , got in the car and my principal (im a teacher) asked me how do i feel. I knew i got this! When i walked down the aisle and saw all the special people there for us and then then i saw my future husband with our 2 year old son. Amazing feeling! We had a very good Pastor and very relaxed ceremony! Our first dance was also very special, our son joined into the dance.
