|What can I say, we've always been stylish|

As the wedding grew closer and closer, I realized more and more that I was THISCLOSE to moving out of my parents' house. And it was incredibly bittersweet. After the wedding and the honeymoon, as we got ready to move to California, I grew increasingly sad and was in denial about leaving. One evening, Bryan saw my mom sitting in the living room, and said "You need to go be with your mom. We leave in two days." I'm not sure I ever cried as much as I did then, sitting in my mom's lap, feeling like a child who wasn't ready to grow up.
