This past week, it dawned upon Mark and I that we are really getting married. After having been engaged for almost 16 months that may seem like a "Duh!" to everyone else but I think it's because we finally started wedding planning.
A few weeks ago, I was riding in the car with my mom and my grandmother (Momaw) and we drove past a dress shop. In the window of the dress shop was a beautiful wedding gown. So, after a huge lunch, we decided to stop and look at the dress in the window. It was not the perfect dress for me but I did have the privilege of spending an afternoon in a Victorian house trying on dresses with my mother and grandmother. In the end, we found the perfect dress, that one dress that made me sad to take off but more than just having found the perfect dress I had shared a wonderful afternoon with two women that I love.
This past weekend, Mark and I completed our wedding registries. People who know us will be happy to see items such as a sushi set, octopus soap dispenser, and a cat statue that holds the toilet brush on our list. Life is good.
