as soon as we connected this morning i heard mohamed yelling,
"mom, mom, MOM! i heard about the married!!!"
in sierra leone everything is a married. 'we are going to the married', 'how was the married?', never a wedding. and if the other side of the world has heard about our married, well then i guess it's official. josh and i had our second ceremony, a little less sweaty and a lot more legal, in our backyard here in nashville on saturday. it was perfect. just our families. a couple of friends to make sure our mimosas stayed full. absolutely no stress. just perfect.
in the spirit of our tendency to do things a little differently:
my dad walked me down the driveway. aisles are so 2012.
the neighbors stood on their side porch silently holding hands and watching.
josh surprised me with an engagement ring after putting my wedding band on my finger.
because of this i got a little excited and accidentally kissed him before the whole 'kiss your bride' bit.
like i said, just perfect.
a handful of aunties at the covering popped in to our skype call to wish us well this morning. lots of mrs. garrett's and laughter and ooooh's over my bouquet that is still sitting on my dining room table.
i give you tuesday's best. married style.
