I can be impulsive and like to do things as the mood strikes me. We bought a house recently, added a dog to our family, things are going well. Maybe the best since we married about 18 years ago. About a month ago I decided I was in the mood to celebrate! So we decided to plan a nice celebration for our Anniversary in October. The idea that it’s not a milestone year doesn’t really bother me, I’m still plenty happy and excited.
We did talk briefly about having a party, but that part didn’t work out since the date we choose conflicted with another event for just about everyone local. So we decided to ‘keep it simple’ and celebrate with getting dressed up and going out to dinner.
Early next week will be probably the last fitting for my dress. My dress went from being a lace top and skirt to a lace full length dress. Since October could be Chilly, I think a jacket is going to be added to my anniversary look. A neighbor of ours is a photo hobbyist and offered to take pictures for not very much at all, so now there’s that. 🙂 I just got done texting her, and she wants to take some practice pictures before the official day. We don’t get pro pictures taken that often, so I’m excited. Now I’m looking to see about a hair and nail appointment, wondering what jewelry I should wear, I’m even considering a birdcage Headpiece for the pictures. Have a feeling I won’t do the birdcage, but I am envisioning things like Lace combs for maybe a up-do. Now I’m getting excited about things like what jewelry to wear, things I didn’t think would really matter when we first started making plans.
Last night I had a dream that my cousins and my long gone grandma showed up at my door, put me in a car and we ended up at Kleinfelds for a big sale. They were having me try on Ball gowns and big veils. lol. Not what I have in mind for the real day, but the dream was fun. My dad has recently passes as well, and he would tell me to take the time to enjoy my husband and embrace times special time. I think things will stay under control, but this day is becoming more and more special as it approaches. I’m excited!
