May 30th, 2015 The Day of My Daughter's Wedding

May 30th, 2015 The Day of My Daughter's Wedding

9, 305 days ago, I stood in the delivery room watching the most fascinating thing I'd ever witnessed.

7,301 days ago, we held her hand as she walked nervously into her first classroom. I couldn't believe it was already that time.

5,475 days ago, we watched her play ball.

4,380 days ago, I first yelled, “turn that music down!!”

2,920 days ago, we consoled her when the boyfriend wasn't working out.

2,555 days ago, we witnessed a twinkle in her eye when she became sweet on this new kid from Thomas, Oklahoma.

2,280 days ago, we beamed with pride as she graduated high school.

2,190 days ago, we moved her into the dorm and then felt the strangest feeling as we waved goodbye and drove away.

730 days ago, we all gathered to watch her graduate college with honors.

285 days ago, we had the incredible pleasure of witnessing her overcome her fears when she accepted her first job as a special education teacher.

1 day ago, I practiced walking her down the aisle.

Today, I will hold her hand again, walk her down the aisle and stand by her side as she enters the next, most wonderful chapter of her life.

It doesn't seem possible to already be at this moment in time. Holding her in my arms for the first time, seems like just days ago.

Today's wedding was out of this world, wonderful! It's almost 3am after what was clearly the busiest day of my life, literally, of my entire life. I'll wait until tomorrow night to recap this monumental day.

I have a few pictures on my phone. The photographer took a bunch. I can't wait to see and share some of those.

I asked mom to dance with me. Thank you, mom! It was incredibly special!

Noah didn't quite have the patience for the ceremony--but the reception? He had a blast!

I danced with both my daughters, mom and some friends.

My focus was so heavily on everything but food, I ended up with only 246 net calories after exercise calories burned. I couldn't keep up. It's one day. I feel fine.

I'm looking forward to more pictures and more writing about today in tomorrow night's edition.

  5. Noah looked so sweet in his tux. Two of the most handsome guys there I'm sure.....besides the groom of course. A very special picture of you and your Mom at a very special time. I too look forward to seeing more pics of your family. I imagine the fatigue hit pretty quick after such a busy but memorable day. You were able to go to bed with a clean heart on managing the day so well both with exercise and food and heart full of love.

    1. I ate well--just not enough. I was so busy and preoccupied, it just wasn't on my mind to eat more. I totally could have considering my exercise calories burned... It was too late--I just couldn't bring myself to eat more than I did.
