I'm so grateful for everyone that came out and toughed it out in the cold and rain to celebrate our special day with us. I'm grateful for my husband's (!!!YEA!!!) brilliant idea to bring the Keurig out with us so everyone could have warm beverages while they waited. I'm so grateful for all the help we received in setting up and preparing for our big day. Thank you to all those who did the heavy lifting while I got to be with my bridesmaids and focus on nails and makeup. I'm so grateful to have not only my blood-related family but my friends, that have become family, there with me. I'm so grateful to be extending that family with my new husband's family and friends that have definitely become family. I'm grateful for the wonderful photographers and beautiful setting! And I'm even grateful for the ducks that flew in as witnesses. It was a beautiful and perfect day!
Today I am so grateful to start my life as a wife. I'm grateful to be able to call the man I love my husband. And I'm grateful for my new name... both first and last. I'm grateful to make AmandaRey my official first name as so many know me as Rey, like I prefer. And I'm so grateful to release my former last name and step into the future carrying the family name and Swedish heritage of my husband.
Thank you all for celebrating with me yesterday and following along in my journey over the last few years. I do not fully know what is to come but I know it will be beautiful. What is beautiful in your life today? What are you grateful for and who in your life inspires that gratitude and thanks? Have a beautiful day!
