I probably wouldn’t have realized it without Facebook, but June has been chock full of anniversaries! It’s the five-year anniversary of my impromptu trip to New Orleans where Dave and I met, the three-year anniversary of when we reunited in New York and fell in love (aww), and the one-year anniversary of when we got married (that was yesterday). It’s also the one-year anniversary of when Lily was conceived, and it’s been a year since I’ve had a period. Here’s to another year! Lol.
I managed to finally upload my wedding photos to Facebook. As I was going through them I felt happy and sad. Happy because it was a beautiful day and everything went pretty perfectly. Sad because although we wanted it to be a small wedding, in hindsight there are some family and friends that I wish we could/would have invited. It was such a special day, and I wish they had been there with us. But it is what it is, nothing we can do about it now.
I also got “sad” looking at how “thin” I was compared to now. It’s funny – the first few times I looked at those pictures, all I could think was “damn, why didn’t I lose more weight before the wedding?!” But now, now that I’m about 25 pounds heavier, I’m like “shit, I looked pretty good back then!” Lol I guess it’s all about perception. I also wish I’d gotten my hair professionally done. Oh well!
