Showered

I can't explain, although I'm sure most already know, the feeling of being surprised. In the last year, I've fallen twice. First, Quinn. The first person I can ever remember to surprise me for my birthday. I love surprises, I love the everyday surprises too. :)

Then, before I marry the love of my life, my wonderful friends surprise me. I really didn't speak of it for a week, til the shock and awe wore off. I'm so grateful for the excitement brought to me that weekend, not to mention the excitement Quinn felt. Quinn had no idea until approx 3 hours before the surprise. He was having one of 'those days' at the office, but by the time he came to pick me up he was on such an excited high, I was impressed, but suspected nothing. My sister and Mom came in to go dress shopping, but said they were going home early that night...at times I suspected something, but each time my suspicions were diffused.

Thanks for making the surprise trip Candice & Tom, thanks to everyone, I mean everyone for surprising me, and thanks to everyone else who helped out. The shower was perfect, when I walked in and saw all those people were there for me (and Quinn)...no doubt I was overcome. The gifts...Quinn and I were...just...wow. Thanks people. Thank you God.

We tried to surprise you last year too with that "Get together for our Maid of Honour" (at Tim and Sara's). I now it wasn't fantastic, but we tried! Sniffle.
