After today, all of us will be able to call ourselves married and mean it officially, with the full backing of our government behind us. Though Jazz and I have used the word “husband” for a long time now, it will mean so much more after today.
I know exactly what to expect about the wedding ceremony, and yet I feel completely out of control as I write this on Wednesday night. I’m nervous and anxious and exhausting my coping techniques, but I’m oh so happy too :) I’m getting married.
We usually spend a lot of time sitting together in the evenings. I don’t know why we have so much furniture when we rarely use anything that would mean sitting alone. Lately, we’ve been quieter about it. Settled and calm. Snuggled up together and not needing words. And it isn’t even that we’re doing something else, like watching TV or reading — we spent hours on Monday just holding onto each other and kissing now and then. If this is us settling into “married life” I sincerely like it :)
The excitement in the family is palpable. Grams and Edgar are full of hugs, my dad keeps looking at me like I make him proud, and my friends keep texting me with exclamation marks :D LOL
My “something old” is a photo of my mom and me hugging each other tightly. It’ll be in the breast pocket of my shirt. <3
Jazz finally told me where we’re going: Niagara Falls. I’m very happy about this :D I’ve never been and always wanted to see it. We’ve got a honeymoon suite and tickets to ride one of the boats right up to the falls! Carter and Alec are going to spend time down in southern Ohio, in Amish country. There’s an old hardware store that Carter loves and lots of antiquing and craft places for them to visit. We’ll all be back in town some time on Tuesday and, when we get together for dinner, we’ll choose all the Wedding Week prize winners ;)
We’ll see you all on Wednesday!
