- Wedding: September 2011
Funny story from our wedding a couple weeks ago— as we were standing in front of all those near and dear to us, preparing to exchange vows, now-DH had the most intense and serious look on his face. He stared me straight in the eye for the entire ceremony. Really intense eye contact. I was super nervous during the ceremony, and really emotional, and I guessed that his trying to hold my gaze was his way of helping me stay calm, cool and collected through the ceremony, kind of like “just keep looking at me, and don’t think about everyone looking at you, and I’ll help you calm down.” And I thought it was very sweet! So I stared back at him lovingly through the whole ceremony, and I got through it just fine!
Well during the reception, his sister mentioned to both of us that I had looked really nervous, but he looked cool as a cucumber, and I replied “I was so glad he kept that eye contact with me the whole time– what a doll he is for trying to keep me calmed down!”
His response? “Well actually, I was staring like that because that dress… umm… I was afraid if I looked anywhere other than your eyes, everyone would catch me staring at your boobies!”
God I love that man 🙂
