Confessions of a Newlywed

Despite all my ranting and raving about how I am not a planner and wedding planning is not my thing...I miss it. Who am I? I think I have come down with a bad case of PWDB...the Post-Wedding Day Blues.

I hate it, but its true what they say about your wedding day being a blur and that the day goes fast. Dang they! And dang nostalgia! After the AMAZING wedding, I had the honeymoon to look forward to. After the AMAZING honeymoon, I had the professional photos and moving into the new digs to look forward to. And after I received the AMAZING photos and somewhat settled into the AMAZING, new home with my Hubby (who I finally get to wake up to every morning and fall asleep to every evening), I felt sad. Sometimes, I look at the photos, and I can't believe it all happened. I'm married. To the most AMAZING, sweet, kind, loving (I could go on) guy I know. How did that happen? And now what?

I know the answer, life. But if I know the answer, the logic and the reason of it all, then why am I still bummed? And should I be this bummed so soon?

As my fabulous Hubby gets busy with school, I find myself needing to immerse into something productive. Yard work and cleaning has been the answer lately, but its 106 degree heat index today, and a girl can only do so much mulching before she passes out. I've been thinking about volunteer work, working out (although I don't have to fit into a dress anymore...whaaa!), church, making new friends (currently the majority of my friends in my new city are busy med school students)...Another confession...I talked to a little, green grasshopper today while I was watering flowers...I definitely need more friends...And even now, I'm smiling about how cute and friendly that grasshopper was...get a hold of yourself, for good God, woman.

I guess these things are considered life. And other women have gone on before me and lived their lives after their wedding day...

But, before I go gung-ho on moving forward, do I get a grace period?

Wedding planning...planning, planning planning. Its hectic, it consumes your days...then suddenly the big day! Its wonderful, its fabulous! Then, like planning for Christmas, the day comes, planning is over, and then its New Years!!! There is a new phase, a new day, and isn't it grand!
And yes,dear daughter, every girl gets a grace period! Its God's Grace and it is yours! Savor the day, and the days, and watch life happen! enjoy the quiet, and even the grasshoppers, life is so good and at this wonderful time of year, each day is a gift, none to be taken for granted!
Loved the wedding, your and Blake's day was so perfect and we all loved witnessing your love!
