Today is my 6-month anniversary. 6 Months ago my hubby and I were nervously awaiting the smashing of glass, the dancing first dances and the cutting of the cake.
As some of you know, we got married rather quickly. Essentially, we were enaged and married in 3 weeks. Our party was 36 people (including ourselves) which consisted of mostly family and a few extended family members. It was lovely and completely the way to do it.
It was so nice not to obsess over the little details. Not once did my mother and I fight about whether it should be white or off-white, purple or lilac, fish or chicken. We didn’t have time to stumble over choices like this, we just made them. And it was great.
Geoff and I were engaged on Valentines Day (ick). Well technically it was past midnight so lets say Febrary 15th. On the 15th I ordered my beautiful dress from AnnTaylor.com and it was on my doorstep a few days later. My mother in law took me to chinatown to get it tailored and done! The only thing that was a bit of a struggle was the veil. I refused to pay 100s of dollars for something I could easily make myself. I managed to get one of ebay for a resonable sum (the express shipping cost more than the veil).
Anyway, reflecting on the last 6 months, I can’t say married life has really changed us. I think if anything, we like each other more. There’s a certain mutual respect that you can’t really feel for a person until you’re married. We look at each other now and think, this person is my family and I need to think before I yell at them for not putting the cap back on the toothpaste.
I am very happy and feeling good about the last 6 months and the next 60 years to come. My husband is wonderful and we plan on having a good time and kicking ass for the rest of our lives together.
Congrats on your first six months – and here’s to many more to come. Mazel Tov!
I hear you on the small wedding thing! The pictures are beautiful, by the way, and y’all look great! Congrats on the first six months- Dan and I have been married 6 years, and you’re right- it’s the little things that make you fall in love all over again. (Ok, or want to yell about the toothpaste!)
We did the “Justice of the Peace Thing.” It would have been a nightmare to coordinate a big wedding, and neither of us wanted that. It was just us, our parents, my grandparents, and some dude in an orange jumpsuit. It turns out that there’s no difference between criminal and civil cases for the magistrate here in NC on the weekends- they all get funneled to one courtroom waiting area… so some of our pictures have “the dude” in them. I always swore I wouldn’t do a traditional ceremony- and we lived up to that and how!
