Today is a HUGE day! Kevin and I are going to the location of our wedding to do a walk through with our wedding planner! I know she has a beautiful vision for our big day and I can’t wait to hear all about it. It’s crazy how fast time is flying by. But at the same time I feel like we have been engaged forever! (I already call him my husband and fill out paperwork as Ali Manno since I’m so over calling him my fiance and it’s so much easier to write than Fedotowsky Ha!)
It especially feels like a long time since we had to postpone our wedding twice! The first time was because I got pregnant (even though we were trying to get pregnant – weird logic on our part I know. Ha!) and the second time was because of the Zika virus. Long story short, we were supposed to get married in Mexico at the most incredible resort, but then the news about Zika broke and we just didn’t feel it was fair to ask our friends to travel there especially since many of our friends are either pregnant or planning to get pregnant soon.
Well, no more postponing! Our wedding day will be here before we know it! And I have to say that I’ve never been more in love with this guy. Seeing Kevin be the absolute best dad in the world to Molly has made my love for him grow in a way that is completely different than my love for him when it was just the two of us. I guess “completely different” isn’t the right way to say it. I don’t even know how to say it. I just respect him more than ever and the love I have for our family is beyond any love I’ve ever felt.
That said, things have certainly changed and not always for the better. I mean – let’s be real. We are SO sleep deprived and that causes us to bicker more than we normally would. Also, we sleep in separate bedrooms some nights. No, not from fighting. I feel so lucky to say that we rarely fight. I can’t even remember the last time we got in an actual full blown fight. Maybe twice ever honestly. But we’re sleeping in different rooms on some nights because it’s the only way we will ever get any sleep with an infant! Kevin sleeps some weeknights in the guestroom because he has to get up at 4am to go to work and I spend some weekends in the guest room so I can sleep more than 3 hours at a time. Kevin will give Molly bottles throughout the night on those nights. SO we make it work and even thought our relationship dynamic has changed, our love continue to grow in ways we never knew before having Molly.
Anyway, I just wanted to share that we are officially in wedding countdown mode!!! Woo hoo! I won’t share the actual date, but I will say it’s in the first half of 2017! I plan to share some of the wedding planning and excitement with all of you on my blog! So grab a virtual glass of champagne (or sparkling cider!) and let’s toast to love! Whether it’s loving your partner, your child, or yourself! Love is a wonderful thing 🙂
And while you are here check out my outfit details below! My army green jacket is a FAVORITE of mine, See me wearing it HERE too. So cute right? And these boots are to die for! They are the perfect fall boots. They go with everything and are really perfect for gals on the go since they are flats and so comfy. Also, they zip all the way down to the foot in the back so you wont have a problem getting them on over your calves or taking them off! I know that can be a problem sometimes with boots for women with muscular calves. So these are great for that!
I also LOVE LOVE LOVE my bracelets. They are very personal to me. I have the “Daughter” Alex and Ani Bracelet and the M for “Molly” (or Manno!). Kevin’s mother Joanne gave me both of them as gifts and I couldn’t love them more! They would make lovely gifts for those you love this holiday season! More outfit details below!
