"Perfect love casts out fear." (1 John 4:18)
We were both so busy that we forgot our anniversary until after lunchtime on Tuesday. But Ed got me flowers that night, and last night we went out to dinner at the Persian restaurant where our reception was held. Then we tried to watch our video, but the DVD has a problem. So we looked at the photos instead, and remembered what a beautiful day it was.
I loved getting married later in life. You so don't care about the silly parts of a wedding. I especially loved that I walked down the aisle with Ed. We were two adults making another step in our commitment to each other that day, not ontologically changing from single people to married people (a little theological term!). And the two did not become one. We're still two people.
Craft-wise, I made our invitations (stamped with a fall leaves theme) and stamped/painted terra cotta pots (again with fall leaves theme) for the centerpieces (the mum plants were $1.99!) and then stamped mini terra cotta pots and put fall-color foil-wrapped candy in them for favors. It was just enough to put a personal stamp on the day (no pun intended!) but not so much that I stressed out about making everything. I'll have to post photos of those someday since that was pre-Spiritual Knitter. My goal is to do our wedding scrapbook before we have kids!
