After heading back to the hotel following the rehearsal dinner, there was still another sweet spot in the night, a sister sleepover. My sister is forever my best friend so there was never any question that she would be my maid of honor. Who else, but the person who has been by my side since she entered the world, could I possibly ask to stand by my side on my wedding day? I know for a fact that I wouldn't be the same person if I'd never had her as my sister. And I knew I wanted to have a little time just the two of us before T.J joined our family.
When we got back to our hotel room after all the rehearsal dinner fun we sat on the side of the tub and soaked our already aching feet so they would be ready for another full day of dancing. We rehashed the night, and shook our heads in shared disbelief that tomorrow was my wedding day. And I stored it all up in my heart, this sweet time with my sister before the crazy day to follow.
