This weekend was full of April showers, flowers, farmer's market trips, and lots of errands ran for the wedding. I love how every Sunday we visit the same farmer's market and every time, the produce guy recognizes us and the bakery lady does too. The produce is always insanely cheap for bags worth of fruits and veggies, and the bakery woman is always so proud to show us what bread she'd made for the week.
We ran some errands like finding S a belt and some clothes for the rehearsal dinner. He tried on his entire wedding day outfit and I marked his pants to hem them. We went over some songs and practiced dancing to our first dance in our living room. In the moment, I hope I smile and have as much fun as we do on our carpet.
Last week was full of monumental events, my 365 favorite things journal is full of good things from last week. On Wednesday, I went into to work thinking it was just another office day. Only, around lunchtime, my coworkers are throwing white balloons at me! It was another surprise bridal shower, this time with all of my close coworkers, who are more like friends. We ate food from one of our favorite caterers, and I enjoyed celebrating our upcoming wedding with them!
Thursday was actually my last day of school - ever. I will never again search for a classroom, sit in another lecture, or be assigned another group project. I have exam-week up ahead, but my classes are actually done! It was a little bittersweet on the drive home. Being that my last class of the day, the professor played this inspirational video, which left the class a bit in a "what am I doing with my life?" But mostly, it was bittersweet because I've been attending college for 5 years and finally, it's done. I loved every class I've ever taken because I love learning, but I'm done, and I'm relieved. What I've been working toward, it's finally here.
A week ago, we had a rainy wedding. I had such hopes for this wedding, as I do with every wedding. I get so attached to my brides and grooms that I don't want the rain to come in the way of them having the ceremony or reception that they wanted.
This time, it was my first time with two grooms, so I really wanted them to be extra happy. And they were. They didn't let the rain ruin their day, after all, they were just happy to be having a wedding together. We have a rain back up plan for them and they have each other for support, so in the end, of course they were happy.
