Dress, Anthropologie replica home-sewn, Belt Ralph Lauren, Shoes Michael Kors, Pearls thrifted
Could I get three cheers for this dress?! Or rather three cheers for my sissy not making her bridemaids wear something that would illicit tears of shame 20 years from now? Many thanks, Caytlyn. You're a hero in the books of wedded history.
I wore this to church today, dressed up with some pearls and Ruby-Woo lipstick, praying to goodness that I didn't resemble a first-lady wannabe.
I can't decide if I failed or not.
On a sappy, erm ... different note, Husband spoke in church today.
He was wonderful. I really mean it ...
I sat in the pew watching him and was suddenly in love. Which sounds weird, but that's how it felt. I was reminded of exactly the reasons why I married him. I got Nala Eyes. You know, Nala in the Lion King? When they're romping down the side of the hill and "can you feel the love tonight?" is settin' the mood in the background. Then she leans back in the grass, after he's pinned her down and she gives him ... THAT LOOK ... the Nala Eyes.
Well, I got that today.
And honestly I think all marrieds need moments like that sometimes. We live together. We dress together. We go to the bathroom in front of each other. We smell each other's morning breath. Mystique? --- forget it. So, every once in awhile, when you get that chance, it's nice to see your spouse in a situation outside of the day-to-day routine --- it just keeps that spark burnin' baby.
Let it go down in the books, that today, I fell in love again.
