Here I am, back at home with three days of “back to work” under my belt since The Electrician and I eloped August 17th. Marriage to my sweet man is wonderful, and, while school is heaps of work as usual, I’m certain coming home every afternoon to my husband will make this school year a great deal better than the ones that came before it.
If you’ve been wondering where I was, and why my poor little blog seemed dead in the water this summer, I was busy planning a secret wedding. I truly thought having a wedding with fewer than two dozen guests would be a minor investment of my time, but unfortunately preparations for the big day took right over. When I wasn’t working on things for our wedding day, I was thinking about the things I needed to accomplish, so I didn’t have as much to write about as usual because I didn’t want to give away the surprise. If you were waiting for a post that took forever to appear (I realize that sounds rather self-congratulatory) I’m sorry to have disappointed you. If you write a blog I typically visit, I have not been deliberately ignoring you and I will be around again soon. I plan to return to a more regular writing schedule now that the excitement is simmering down.
All summer long, when my mom called and asked what I was up to, I’d have to say things like, “Oh, you know, summer stuff. Being lazy,” when really I was baking stuff or calling vendors or trying to practice my hairstyle for the big day. Sometimes I told Momma I was “cleaning house,” but not too often or she might have suspected I was up to something or had been replaced by a late on the scene changeling. I am admittedly a terrible housekeeper; thankfully I can cook so I’m not entirely undomestic.
At any rate, our wedding day unfolded exactly as we planned it, except that neither of us blubbered our way through the ceremony as we feared. Somehow, we managed to control the waterworks and just have swimming eyes in some of our photos. We had a perfect day to start the rest of our lovely lives together.
I’m grateful in so many ways.
