We Are...

exhausted, happy, tired, anxious, excited, sleep-deprived, sick of being in the car, dreamy, in love, grateful, burned-out, content and ready to get married.

But mostly just exhausted. :)

My whole family is in Rio de Janeiro right now, and it is the first time in my ENTIRE LIFE that I have had everyone together. My family is small - I'm an only child, I have 1 surviving grandparent, 1 blood uncle, 1 blood aunt, 3 first cousins and 2 second cousins - and we have never in my lifetime managed to get the nuclear family together. (To be fair there are a few more distant cousins in there, but I'm not in touch with any of them and likely couldn't even list their names.)

Rico's whole family is here as well, so it is an especially nice reunion on both sides.

We're almost there. All the details are in place, now we just have to sit back and enjoy!

I am SO EXCITED for you!
You just made me remember the week before my wedding. I remember being so exhausted at the end of the day that by the time I'd crawl into bed in the wee hours, I'd feel like I was going to die. The flip side is that I was so happy and excited that somehow I managed pretty well on limited sleep.
Cheers to you!
