This is the last time I’ll be writing to you as Miss Mink. I have to admit that the week leading up to our wedding hasn’t been what I expected. As the various weather forecasts started to line up and agree, we had to define what had been a fairly vague rain plan.
I’m a little ashamed to admit it, but I’ve shed some tears in the last 48 hours over the weather and the changes to our plans. My main wishes for this day were to get married outdoors, with the Blue Ridge Mountains behind us, and to have my dog present. Thankfully, our venue briefly lifted their “no dogs inside” rule so Junior Mink can be part of our ceremony. However, getting married outdoors seems impossible right now.

I wish I could write a dreamy, bliss-filled “morning of my wedding” post like other bees have done before me, but I feel I have to be real.
So, goodbye from a sad Miss Mink. While I’m thrilled to be marrying Mr. Mink and am looking forward to tonight, I’m very sad that everything from our pictures to our decor (corn hole in the rain, anyone?) will be negatively affected by the rain.
