My mom, Stephanie is the most amazing person I know. She is the strongest, kindest, most sensitive, most giving person I know. She would do anything for Anybody- especially her family. I'm very close w/ my family, especially my mom, which is why it's so hard to live 700 miles away from all of them. The past few months she has been doing 90 percent of my wedding planning. She works full time and STILL finds the time to visit the florist, the cake person, the church, etc. EVERYONE needed to make this wedding happen. She is super mom. She got married to my dad at 19, became a mom at 20, and 4 years later moved to cold Sweden, from Sunny FL with my dad and her 4 children. How she did it alone (my dad worked abroad most of the time) in a foreign country with 4 children and then a 5th I'll never know. She is truly amazing.
My dad, Stefan (yes, Stefan and Stephanie, cute huh?) is a the most hardworking man I know. He also leads the most exciting life of anyone I know. He works as a corporate executive chef/food manager for a cruise line and every time I get a phone call/text/email he is in a different country. Even from thousands of miles away he has do everything he can to help with the wedding. I get to see him one week from today when he flies in from Italy and I can't wait to see him!!
