Love is as much of an object as an obsession. Everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it. Those who do will cherish it, be lost in it , and among all, never...never forget it. Curtis Judalet
Summer is the wedding season and we have been to four weddings already. We are invited to five more AND we are planning one of our own for Mindy. There is so much planning and scheduling to do. Each wedding is beautiful with every little thing thought of. Some are elegant. Others are romantic/country. Some are trendy. Mindy's will be a little vintage.
This got me thinking of my own wedding. Jay and I were engaged on Labor Day 1978. We were married only three months later on November 25th. My mom made my dress. A friend of Jay's mom arranged the flowers. Another family friend made the wedding cake. There wasn't alot of details. All I know is that I was getting married to my best friend. We were really young and in love. That was almost 30 years ago. We had so much fun and so much adventure ahead of us. There was a couple of years with just the two of us before we had kids. In those 30 years we have done so much. It was never boring. I never wished anything was different. I enjoyed every minute of it.
What I am trying to say is that so many times you put so much into every detail of your wedding and not enough into your life together. Just think how great your marriage would be if you wanted every day to be special. Being married should be as important as getting married. Of course, your wedding day should be perfect and you should be a princess. But remember it's your life together that is important and it should turn out happily ever after.
