I am getting married today June 3rd. The day after my dad’s 65th birthday. Nine days before our Palm Springs wedding. 15 days before my 35th birthday.
Someone asked me which day I would use to celebrate our anniversary and I didn’t know. I assume they’ll both be special. Today we’re celebrating the sacrament of marriage in the catholic church. Intimate with only my parents, my sister, the deacon, and our photographer. June 12th will be in front of all our family and friends. Both equally meaningful.
I took the day off to get a mani-pedi, my hair done, and relax. But it’s like any other weekend day. I’m trying to figure out where to eat breakfast, then lunch. I hope the same holds true on June 12th even though there are so many more logistics. Breakfast, lunch, then showtime. Except there will be a wedding coordinator running around, people asking me how I’m feeling, someone will be late, there’s a dog running around and my mom’s allergic, where are the programs, the updo is starting to fall…
Then there’s today. This is so very nice. Off to eat.
