Wow, what feats you have accomplished! With all that your remaining 5 tasks should be a piece of cake!

Can't wait to see you! With or without flowers in your hair!

Also, hope wedding photographer doesn't have a migraine the day of wedding (it came Thanksgiving, one day off).

Wow, that is some busy. The more I think about it, the more I think Drake had it right. Go to the courthouse and boom, done. No fuss no muss.
