My friends are the greatest. I've said this before, but it bears repeating. the greatest.
They are so giving, so loving, so funny.
One of my absolute favorite things about getting married was being surrounded by my favorite women in the world. I felt so loved. so lucky. so joyful.
There is literally nothing better in this world than being surrounded by friends who know you better than you know yourself.
The last few days before the wedding felt so surreal. This big life moment that you've waited for and are so ready for is barreling towards you, and all you can do is try to be present.
My friends kept me calm, laughing, and feeling loved. They kept me feeling like me.
To thank them and the ladies in my family for being so awesome, we had all met for brunch at one of my absolute favorite restauarants Zazie. This is the same place where Viet and I ate the night we got engaged. Sorry these pictures are so blurry. They were all taken on my iphone. I was too excited and forgot my real camera.
A few minutes into the brunch (in honor of them) the ladies surprised me with a TIFFANY's Bag/BOX. I was shocked to say the least. I've never had a Tiffany's box before! Shap started speaking, and I started crying.
Inside was a beautiful silver infinity necklace and a card that said "Honored to be your friends–now & always-your friends of honor." I cried. a lot. There's a video.

After our incredible mani/pedis, we headed to a yummy dinner at Chow:
And we were having funnnn. Check it out. Momma B on the left (due in November 🙂 and Fanny on the right. I love this three shot series:
Thank you ladies. I love you dearly.
