At my cousins wedding

 

I was just recently a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding.  It got me thinking how much I love weddings. Like, LOVE weddings.  In fact,  it made me question,  why I am not a wedding coordinator. Jason said I’m not bossy enough to be,  but I definitely have good ideas and crazy organization and planning skills.

 

The past month has been so fun (and a little crazy) with all the wedding stuff. We hosted a bridal shower, attended a Bachelorette party,  arranged flowers,  had dress issues (I had to hem mine the day before, and it was too big) and then it finally came to the big day.

 

It is so wonderful watching two people who love each other,  plan their life together.  It made me think back to 4 years ago when I married the love of my life.  We had already been dating for 6 years and had planned a future together.   We were engaged for a year and 4 months. It felt like forever,  but I wanted our wedding to be everything we could ever imagine (on a budget)! That was one of the best years of my life.

 

When it actually came to our wedding day, we were so excited.  Everything was perfect!  I can still remember so many details. I keep begging Jason to build me a slide show video of our pictures (with video clips too), including all our special songs and everything….  Someday. 😉

 

As I look back at our love, before we were married,  when we got married and now – it’s true, love really does grow. We are still building dreams and working together to achieve them. Of course there is the occasional hiccup,  like a new baby or new video game,  but we learn to adjust and I think we even end up with a stronger relationship then before.
