I cried when I came home from my shower. It was just so emotionally taxing. My DH and I had lived together for 6 years prior to getting married, so we had all the essential home goods. I begged my family to go light on the gift giving since we lived in a small 2 BR house. Honestly, I wanted a honey moon registry but my mom refused to host a shower with such a tacky gift scheme. I came home with enough gifts to fill our dining room. I was so stressed out and our house was already overwhelmed with wedding decorations and craft projects. And, I was working a fulltime job and was getting sick of my weekends being a second job, planning the wedding. I felt so out of control. To top it off, my mom decided to do a “Christmas Ornament” tree, each guest gave us an ornament to help deocrate our first tree as a married couple. It was a sweet idea, but I hated the idea of digging out our christmas storage in the middle of August. I just ended the night sobbing, stuffing all our new towels into our linen closet. Poor DH thought I was losing it…so to cheer me up, he put on the white silk nightie my sister gifted me for the wedding night. I’ll never forget that :p

I still have some gifts, unopened, in storage. His and her towel hooks. Monogrammed hand towels. Art work that doesn’t match our house. I hate to sound ungrateful, but I really am a simple person. A card would have been just as nice.
