I am SO sorry about my long absence! Life has been a whirlwind, with an engagement in August, and then our wedding on New Years Eve 2010…add on a new job that I started in January, and, well, I am just coming up for air!
So on to the first and most important bit of news – I am MARRIED! And (drum roll please) we can now call “J.” by his actual name, John.
So, coming back to the title of this post, John did say “I Do.” Right after we read our vows to each other our warm, charming, and twinkle-eyed Justice of the Peace said,”Now John, I am about to ask you a question to which there is only one right answer…” Both of us, as well as the twenty family members we had in attendance, chuckled in amusement and joy. And then, just like that, we said our “I Do’s and we were married!
Everything was just as I wanted it – well…er…the cake was the wrong color, the Champagne glasses were no where to be seen for our first toast, and the wait staff began to cut the cake before WE cut the cake!! But, guess what? We didn’t care because we were as giddy as a kid on a magic carpet…suffice to say nothing could have torn the million dollar smiles from our faces, nothing.
How does it feel? Wonderful. You see, everything is “right with the world when we are together.”*
* Quote from my vows :-).
I will be back soon!
