This wedding's going to serve a few purposes. One: it's the union of J and me and the beginning of our life together. Two: it's a reunion of families and friends who have not seen each other in ages. Three: it's a get away from problems for some. Manitoulin means "God's land" in Ojibway language. It's the perfect place to collect your thoughts, refresh and pamper yourself and it's just plain 'ol good for the soul, body and mind.

The wedding guests have slowly started trickling in. My wonderful grandmother is here along with some of my mom's fam who are helping out before the wedding. One of my bridesmaids is here with her significant other. Kell and I have been friends since we were 16, so it's only fitting that she would stand up with me on my special day. Things have been busy busy today with all the running around.

I think I'm feeling a little anxious or over excited because I was kinda sick today. I had the weird tummy prob, feeling dizzy, etc.

Can't wait til tomorrow for the rehearsal and the rehearsal dinner. Most of my family will be here by then and we're having a huge BBQ party a la filipino style. Music, lots of talking, dancing..rehashing of childhood stories..I love it! I am sooo happy right now :)
