The wedding is just days away! By next Saturday evening, God willing, my life will forever change as I will become one with the love of my life. I am so excited! 6 months is such a short time to be engaged but for us felt like eternity. Hashim and I are besides our selves with excitement. We have so much to look forward to. This week I am going to hold onto God's loving peace. As organized as Hashim and I have tried to be, even now we are working on finalizing certain details! I just know that our big day is going be a bright beaming light of God's radiance and that we will have so much fun. I can't wait to see my family in friends here in our city of love. God willing our story will be in an upcoming issue of the New York Times (the reporter is 99% sure it will run!) for all the world to see, forever recorded in history. I probably won't sleep much this week, but I'm going to try to drink lots of water and eat an extra helping of fruits and veggies. Pray for us!
