This has been a long journey. There were so many obstacles to conquer, issues to work through, a lot of growing up, and even some significant losses occurred before I could walk down the aisle with Frederic.
All of those emotions added to the stress of planning a wedding, and I was literally crumbling down as my wedding day approached. My physical limit was pushed and I was very drained and feeling weak; just one hour before the wedding I felt like fainting and believed I wasn't going to make it, because I had no more strength to carry on physically. After laying down for almost an hour (and getting a shot of vitamins), I finally felt like I could push myself and not miss my own wedding! After all, it took so much to arrive at this day. After I got some energy back, the excitement and adrenaline rushed through my body and I found my smile again and headed to the church were the two loves of my life awaited -- mon chéri, Frederic, and my beloved son, Alex.
