hello! it has been a while but i am starting to come up for air. it is about 8pm and i dont have anything to do! i didnt realize how high my stress level had gotten until now. but, it was all worth it as the day ended up being beautiful and it all went off without a hitch. a few hair raising moments pre-wedding:
-tent guy going out of business and not telling us
-newish glasses first broken, then glue-gunned together, then falling to the bottom of the local duck pond
-trying on my dress and ripping the zipper-then fixing it
all of these moments that at the time seemed major and now seem very minor all lead up to a great event. i learned a lot about rolling with the punches and letting go of vanity. no one noticed that i was wearing my other pair of broken glasses epoxied together : ) i dare say i will NEVER go back to lenscrafters after having several lousy customer services experiences there.. but that is another story...
there are so many people that worked together to make this wedding happen smoothly i cant express my gratitude enough. the music, readings and decorations were just perfect for us. i dont have my camera back yet to get the pictures downloaded but soon i will share those! i only wish there could have been more time (and energy) left in the day, i feel like i didnt get to spend enough time with each person there. i know they understand, but that would be the one part i would change if i could.
i think i am going to take advantage of this quiet and clean (thank you hubby) house to read and go to bed early. btw i am reading Animal Vegetable Mineral by Barbara Kingsolver and i love it. highly recommended.
