Last night we went out to dinner, talked about who knows what, and ended up on the couch watching our wedding video. The kids were screaming from their beds. One of these days they will make signs picketing bed time, no joke. Very typical night.
Watching our Big Day, eight years ago, when we had noooooo idea what this all really meant (thank God) reminded me of all the things I loved about my wedding then. My dress, the music, the food, the dancing. You know, the things you think are sort of important when you’re planning a wedding. I loved my photographer. You can love her too: www.appsphotography.com.
Now, looking back, I realize two things. I have only the images from my photographer and the sweet video our friends lovingly gifted us, which has turned out to be one of our most prized possessions. That is all that is left over from all that planning, and the only things you get to keep. Except wait, no- allllllll of our friends and family! Who, again, in the video, and every day, show us how much they love us.
Seriously you guys I could have cried seeing your very young sweet faces dancing with us, laughing along to the speeches, holding each other on the dance floor. You are still here, loving and supporting us through this completely different phase of life they call parenting. And we have more! More friends who love and support us and tolerate our shortcomings.
I just feel spoiled beyond measure to call you my tribe. Thank you all for being there for us that day and today. I hope we show our love and gratitude to you every time you see us. \
