Today, we woke up around 9am. We had a nice breakfast together. We made eggs, bacon, and cut up some avocado, then we put it on a wrap and it is amazing! After breakfast, he iced his back and stretched some. I went up and got a shower and started getting ready. My parents were getting remarried again today.
Once we left the house, it was 1pm. We stopped at Starbucks on the way. Once we got to the church, it was 1:45pm. We were the first ones there. Drew dropped me off, so I wouldn’t have too far to walk with my heels. It felt really cool to be back in the church where we married. I saw it as a new beginning for so many reasons and on so many different levels. Andrew arrived with Anthony. My parents arrived shortly after. We practiced our readings.
When my parents arrived with my bouquet, we pinned on the boutonnieres, then it was time to get the ceremony underway. We all sat in the first pew until it was time to come for vowels. Andrew did the first reading. I read the New Testament reading, and Anthony read the response and the prayers of the faithful. When it was time to come for vows, Anthony video recorded their vows from the pew. I kept looking at Drew and we would smile at each other, and wink. It wasn’t too long ago that we were up there, saying our vows to one, another. I think about how far we have come and how much life has challenged our love, and faith in our marriage, and we made it! I want us to continue to make it no matter what the challenge.
After the ceremony, we took cheesy pictures, and Fr. Gizler talked to us a bit, then we left and went back to my parents’ house. Anthony, Drew, and I drank some beers and had some chips before it was time to leave for dinner. We went to Atria’s, in the Northshore for dinner. It seems like a lot of new bars when in down there. We are never down there unless it was a game. Dinner was alright. I had two martinis and was enjoying the evening. BB and Doug went us down there, and that was the first time they really, “met” Anthony. It was a beautiful day and evening.
After dinner, we went back to my parents for a triple chocolate cake. We ate so much and drank so much. Andrew, Anthony, and I left when BB and Doug left. I was so tired. When we got home, I put my bouquet and his boutonniere in water, and then I got up and got washed off, and then we watched a little bit of television, but I was having trouble keeping my eyes open. I couldn’t wait to go to bed.
