- Wedding: June 2009
Sorry I’m not home right now I’m walking in a wedding web…well at least it feels like it. I never thought I would be one to stress over something like wedding planning. I purposely chose a far off destination to get married so that it will be small, intimate, and stress free (so I thought). Already, 6 months before the big day my mind is racing with questions I have no way of answering like: who will come?, will it rain?, will my arms looks fat in my dress? I find myself dreaming of pocketfold invitations…seriously who am I and what happened to the pre-engaged me? I did not want to get caught up in this consumer trapping institution of marriage. I wanted something simple, but somehow I have the power to make the most simple things complex. I know now the planning will never be without stress, but I remind myself each day to keep my eyes on the prize. The prize being a loving, caring, funny husband who reciprocates my adoration of him and maybe even more so. A man who really can care less about the wedding details and cares only about being with me. I admire his ability to always see the wood for the trees. I love him for that. Beyond that one fairy tale evening on the beach we will live a real life together back in our cozy little home in the suburbs. That day to day life as mundane as it may seem is where the effort, creativity, and legwork should really go. That is what really matters after the open bar closes and he beef tenderloin is digested.
