Thinking of my Man


These days, my man and I are living on different islands. We’re both very practical and we understand that it is temporary, but it is regrettable nonetheless. It’s got me thinking about our unique romance.

Marc asked me out on the premise that we would be leaving for Europe in 3 months. Once in Europe, Marc waited a little more than a month and while we were in Scotland, in the Ness Islands, he got down on one knee and proposed. Then promptly took me out for Italian food. For the five months we were engaged, we travelled Europe, while emailing my mom to see how the wedding plans were going. Yes, did I mention my mom planned our wedding with very little input from us. It was definitely our preferred way of wedding planning. I wasn’t the little girl who imagined every detail of my wedding. I was the little girl who played house with the couple already married, with pets and children.

We arrived back from Europe on December 11th, we had two weeks until Christmas, then a week till New Years then a week and we got married. I stepped into my wedding dress that a dear friend sewed for me and then we fit it to my tiny body. The wedding wasn’t the event for me, it was the marriage. I was so excited to be married, to commit myself to my best friend. I was so excited that this was the beginning of the rest of my life.

The wedding itself was a great party though. I got to dance to all my favourite songs with my favourite people. I don’t remember the food at all, I didn’t eat even a nibble of my own cake. But I danced and danced and danced.

And our wedding party. Well that’s another story entirely but really, we are so blessed with really good friends.

So dear hubby of mine, even though we are far apart, I’m thinking of you and so glad that we had that special day that marked the rest of our lives.
