I’m married now!

I am really a married woman now.  I don’t really feel any different, am I supposed to?  Well I hope not.  After 6 years and 3 kids, we were already living a “married” life. On the other hand I never quite understood the significance of the ceremony itself.  Don’t get me wrong I always dreamed of getting married; but since we did things a bit out of order, marriage was more of a legality rather than a union (I felt we had already been united through our commitment and our children).  {sorry for the super run on sentence} Saturday I realized how important it was. 

We had a very simple yet elegant ceremony. I made all of the decorations, including: pew decorations, the arch, and unity candle. Ultimately we focused on making it a very spiritual ceremony rather than one full of glitz and glam.  Anyways like I said before, actually having the ceremony and saying my vows was incredible.  We had so much fun. 

But now, unfortunately, its over ( we only had a 14 hour honeymoon—that’s what happens when you have kids before you get married).  So my tackle for Tackle it Tuesday hosted by 5minutesformomis to get my life back in order. I’ve been so focused on the wedding that I’ve really neglected many areas of the house. I have loads, I mean huge loads of laundry to do. Drawers to organize, and bills to pay. Its very overwhelming, but I guess I have to start some where. I’ve gotten caught up with the bills (which was a headache in itself) and did 5 loads of laundry. Only 7 loads left. Sigh…. I’ll keep you posted.
Much Love, Reneca
