Ok, so my bid to avoid laundry was only partially successful. Thanks to a bit of a blow out with a pull-up (we're working on using the potty ALL the time -- so far so good, but, well, it takes time) today I'm doing laundry. Drat. I'll live *sigh* and as I pre-treat and shove things in the washer, I've been dreaming about what I was doing 5 years ago today.
On that lovely October day, I was hanging out in a garden with my friends, my family, and my best friend.
The weather cooperated, though I wish I had remembered the bees. Luckily my best friend is a quick thinker -- he managed to get the one that was crawling down the front of my dress out quickly. (we won't mention the snickers we heard while doing so -- or the questions later about WHAT he was doing)
The day was a nice mixture of tradition and quirky. Just like us. (don't ask how I found a bagpiper who would play the theme from Star Wars -- but it was perfect!)
And best of all -- I got to marry my best friend. We've had our ups, and our downs. We don't always agree -- and sometimes we annoy the crud out of each other. But we're still best friends. We still laugh more than we don't. He's still my shoulder to cry on and my person I want to share the good stuff with. Yeah, this marriage thing is pretty cool. And those kinds of memories, can make even doing the laundry not so bad :0).
