A picture is worth 1,000 words

I know, I know…I usually do the anonymous thing.  But really – this doesn’t show my face…although, I’d be easily recognizable to anyone who was at my wedding since I’m in a car that was an integral part of it all.  But when it comes down to it, I don’t really care.  I don’t post enough for anyone to really read anything that juicy about me, and I just love this picture so I want to see it for a little bit when I come here to not-write 😉

Long story to say – here’s me & my husband on our wedding day…four months from Wednesday.  Happy 4-month-Anniversary to us.   Even though it’s only four months, it’s still nice to remember how we felt that very first day.

So much, So little.

It’s been a long time. And I need to write.

I find these little breaks are good in that a lot happens…creating oh so much to write about. And then I find these longer breaks are bad because…yeah…well…where in the heck should I start to write about…ummm…everything?!

The short and long of it is that I found the love of my life in the last year and I went and married him. So. Un-me to do something like this. And SO SO SO right.

And I need to write again. Maybe not every day, but more than every year. Here’s to a happy medium.

It sure is Sunny Today. And I leave on my honeymoon this week!

Shopping for my future

I guess I’ve always maybe thought I would get married. Eventually. But maybe somewhere deep in the back of my scared, skeptical mind, I thought I would never find someone who just ‘fit’.

And now I undoubtedly actually have found him. Yes, HIM!

Which brings me to the fact that I am utterly unprepared to even know how to do this whole ‘getting married’ thing. (yes, forget about the fact that the ‘being’ married might actually be harder than the ‘getting’ married – but for the purposes of this entry, we are just focusing on one issue at a time here, people!). 😉

We went ring shopping the other day, which, it seems…is the first step in this process that may be a very, very long one with someone who is as unprepared as me for this. Now, apparently…many women know exactly what type of ring they want – down to the designer, the size of diamond, the style…any number of factors that I evidently was COMPLETELY FREAKING unaware of until I went shopping and felt TOTALLY unprepared. Color? Cut? Clarity?

Uhhh…are you serious? ME: Can’t you just pick out something you like for me? I’m fine with any of it. I just love you! (didn’t that score me some points?! ;)) HIM: Believe me, there IS a difference. Let’s just look and see what looks good on you, OK?

I am lucky he is patient. And understanding. Oh, and actually knows something about rings. Thank goodness, because those people can be Snobby, with a (purposefully) capitalized ‘S’.

I’ll show them though – as I go and pick out the most expensive one – since apparently I unknowingly like one that is WAY more expensive then I thought I would! It IS, in fact, a good idea to try things on to see what looks good because NOT all of them do (contrary to my original naïve belief). I, thank goodness, also found a less expensive one that looks nice as well.

And although I am embellishing our conversation, I actually DO just want him to pick one out for me. That is half the fun – the ‘unknown’, the ‘compromise’, the combination of our two styles, the selection of something symbolic of ‘us’. I will love whatever he picks out. I really, truly will, and I’m sure of it.

SIDENOTE: Who knew how freaking expensive rings were? Surely not me!
