I am BACK AND MARRIED! I got married on 10/10, just a few days ago. It was my dream wedding in all ways. I can't wait to share photos with you all.
But I also want to share a kind of weird thing that happened!
I was married once before--my first husband died very suddenly at age 38 of a brain aneurysm. I was only 36, and our daughter was 3. I went through seven years on my own and then I met the most wonderful guy. He's been so patient and understanding as I learned to fall in love again, while being very respectful of my late husband and his place in our lives, and I got to work with an awesome counselor as well, so I was as ready as I could be!
I was going through my things to do my something old/new/borrowed/blue and was kind of stressing over blue of all things. I had a charm bracelet I wanted to wear, and my new husband noticed that on it was a charm photo of me and my first husband, and my first husband's shirt in the picture was blue. So he suggested I count that as my something blue, and I thought it was very sweet and agreed.
We were married on a beautiful day Sunday, and after the ceremony, we walked back together to take a minute and enjoy ourselves and take a breath. Just as we got to the spot where we were going to take a rest, that charm of me and my first husband fell right off the bracelet. The rest of it (15+ charms) stayed in tact, but that charm fell off.
I felt like it was a sign. It was both weird and comforting. What do you think?
