Our Wedding Also Looked Like This


It was a fanf*ckngtastic wedding. I looked like this. There are more pictures. For later. We're moving to North Carolina tomorrow and I am tired, and have bug bites on my eye lids and have bronchitis. But the wedding? Luminous.

And as for Zen? It's kind of real. So weary that I don't really care all the much that my ATM card won't give me anymore money for the bartender and organist or that the plumber my mom called to replace the jank looking downstairs bathroom faucet actually just ripped the whole thing out and it's sitting on the lawn and the downstairs bathroom is non-functional is not reaaaaaaaaallly what I would have called zen. I'm not at peace. I'm calm like a serial killer is calm.


Is tomorrow. I know it's not really done to post during your wedding weekend but there is a moment of quiet. Dad and Sister Dos went to pick up flowers, Mummie is taking the dogs to the kennels and picking up the CSA and Sisters Tres and Cuatro went to pick arms loads of Queen Anne's Lace to fill in bouquets. Brother and his bandmates are still en route and non of the bridesmaids or friends has shown up yet. David is hungover somewhere in bed after bachelor party. Susie, the prettiest bridal dog in town, is on my feet. We are tired. All of us. We want things to get rolling. This getting married business is scary but my favourite thing ever gleaned from Meg is the Jewish Proverb that has been in my facebook favourite quotes (mock, I don't care) for like a year:

“The entire world is a very narrow bridge
And the essential thing is not to succumb to fear.”

2 Days

From right now I will be driving to the inn and it will all be over. There is a little zen now.

Did Anyone Else Hear This?

I heard this article on NPR this morning while making about Not Getting Married. Becoming domestic partners rather than getting married. One guy said "marriage is the big commitment, let's not ruin anything" which reminds me of Meg's post yesterday. For me I think the best thing about having made the decision to get married is that we've decided to be together forever. So whether or not we ruin anything, we're in it. Which is kind of the point. Hmmm.

This is my fantasy right now so much.

I loved when Ten Thousand Only just kind of disappeared after getting married. I had Doux before but have left it in Mary's hands completely since getting engaged. Because you know. I'm a monstrous engaged disaster. Well with ten days until the wedding I'm really looking forward to a real life again.

We just booked our mini-cabin (MD parks department's term, not mine) for three nights right after our wedding here. We'll have a firepit, and a picnic table and a one room cabin with one double bed and an outlet, and a lake and a cooler filled with beer and s'mores and we'll arrive in our new groovy city of Durham a week after our wedding tan and sunburned and sleepy a week after our wedding. I couldn't be more chuffed with us.

Also: Today we bought Perrier in little glass bottles and glass bottle Cokes and big bottles of Pelagrino for yummy wedding yum yums. Now if I can drag our enormous old '60s freezer out of the basement of the barn and clean it off..... Oh yeah. And OUR MARRIAGE LICENSE was gotten today. HOLLER.
