Not long ago I wrote a post regarding the simple things. This past weekend David and I have both been sick. I got it first, then as usual, passed it on to him. Gotta love that! He’s so awesome though. He doesn’t blame me, he just tells me, “boop-boop (his nickname for me, I don’t know why???), we’re in it together,” kind of thing. So I googled homeopathic remedies for sinus infections, since I don’t like the idea of taking antibiotics unless I have to. And we made a list and went to the store.
His mom stopped by to check on us and to bring us some apple cider vinegar, which I despise but David actually likes to use to spice up his “greens.” (Let me just say that gargling with apple cider vinegar is beyond disgusting.) We bought a vaporizer, all natural vapor rub and mist, Mucinex DM, rented season 6 of Supernatural, orange juice, the rest of the ingredients to make homemade beef stew, and a few other misc items.
While we were on each end of the couch in our recliners (the new couch my brother gave us as a wedding present has a recliner at each end), under blankets, watching Supernatural and drinking hot chamomile tea with honey, I looked over at him as he reached for my hand and all the love and happiness burst inside of me and spilled over into that glow that you get when you’re in love and in like…And I knew, just knew, that no matter how the wedding turns out, whether or not it goes off without any major problems, like if it rains (we’re having an outdoor wedding in my parents yard, it will be okay.
I no longer feel all that pressure and stress to have “the perfect wedding,” all I really care about is marrying this man that I love with all of me, that I truly like and who has become my best friend, and that our family and friends get to share in that. So instead of thinking about it as a wedding, I’m going to start thinking about it as a celebration of our love, of our commitment to each other, and our desire to share that with the people we love and care about.
