Just one hitch

It’s official – we are LEGALLY married. Yesterday at 11:08, Mom completed the ceremony making us wife and wife. Woo hoo!

It was really simple and quiet – about 19 family members gathered on our deck, the sun was shining, the breeze was blowing, the hummingbirds were enthralled by my red shirt. Mom did a great job tying the knot, and only got choked up a couple of times.

Afterwards, we went out for burgers. seafood, whatever – take out, and we all got to visit. Lots of low-key fun.

We really appreciate the family (Dad and step mom, aunt and uncle) who drove all the way up from Connecticut, and the family who made time in their busy schedules to be here for us on short notice – a step dad, three sisters, two brothers and a brother-in-law, a cousin, two nieces, a nephew-in-law and a great-niece and nephew – wow! And for our own “reverend mother” who performed the service. And for the rest of the family who had previous commitments, or who are just too far away – we understand completely, but we missed you all the same.

The only hitch?

It was the planned one, of course!

    1. Hey, wow, thank you! I feel honored as I was recently awarded a sunshine award, too. And actually, you are on my list to award that one to! It all goes around, right? 🙂 I’m still working on the post to accept that one. I’ll check out Liebster info later tonight or tomorrow. Thanks again.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
