- Wedding: December 2013
Maybe I’m feeling very overwhelmed because I’m getting married this weekend!
I had my bridal shower (at my BMs insistance – I didn’t even want one) earlier this month and was just soooo touched by how many people came to it, and moreso, their generosity. Fi and I are from middle class families and I know of several members that have lost their jobs the last few years with the crappy ecomony, yet they were so generous with gifts!
Today, I walk into my classroom (I am a high school science teacher) and above my desk there were streamers and paper wedding bells hanging, and little sparkly confetti on my desk. Several teachers that I worked with planned a surprise shower for me today at lunch! I honestly had no idea! I almost started crying when they handed me a card with a gift card that so many teachers and staff had chipped in for!
My students didn’t realize I was getting married this weekend until they saw the decorations (I don’t think I told them) but have been so sweet too.
I didn’t expect any of this and like I said, I just get emotional just thinking about it!
Did anyone else feel like this, or is it me?
