Fear not, my darlings, I'm still here! Thank you so much for the lovely 10th Anniversary wishes and greetings. So many of you lit up my FB wall and messages, my email, and Twitter. I was totally touched by your thoughtfulness.
As you know, my anniversary celebration was a blast! A calm, quiet blast -- of course. I tend to enjoy calm, quiet festivities these days. If I can stay at home in my comfy yoga pants, relax with my kids and Roomie, watch some sci-fi, and have someone cook yummy food for me, I'd be more than a little content.
Then I got to thinking... Considering how much I've mellowed over the years, what would my wedding be like now?
Things like Roomie's "I'm wearing a t-shirt to my wedding!" attire, my (according to my friend Sly) "naked" shoes, our mind-blowing invites designed by our friend Stephen, inheriting my in-laws' wedding rings, not having a wedding cake but a dessert table (which we never got to taste because all the cakes were eaten before we got to it!), and having our wedding in May likely wouldn't change, but some very key things would.
Inspired by this post by Martha B., I decided to visualize and compare my Original Wedding with what my wedding would be like now if I could do it all over again...
Now: destination wedding (Austria)
Now: hair down in cascading waves
Now: Nicole Miller
Now: real jasmine flowers
Now: tapas & sushi
