I'm back ...
and still kicking .. sort of.
New Orleans was amazing ... no wait it deserves capitalization ...it was AMAZING!!! And there will be a full recap, very soon ... in the meantime I have settled into a nomadic existence. You see the Big Guy and I have decided not to see each other for the full week before the wedding .. and so I came back from NOLA to settle in with MOH Yevs and today I am heading on over to my parents house for the rest of the week. I did not think about how much a pain in the ass this was going to be but I am sure it will be worth it when I get the butterflies in the belly before seeing the mister again!
In the meantime, this week, we have hit some wedding ... obstacles ... lets say. First, the ketubah that the Big Guy created himself was accidentally tossed by a cleaning crew and he has to make a brand new one all over again (but dont worry Ketubah 2, The Ketubah Strikes Back .. With a Vengeance is wwaaaaaay better than the original, for serious, its awesome). Also, my dress is a smidge too tight ... damn this whole getting married in winter thing when everyone is bigger than we should be! Ahhh also, the dry cleaners put a small tear in my veil, ... yeh its been kind of a funky week ... but I am not really letting any of it bother me ....
What I am thinking about is standing next to the Big Guy under the hoopah ... thats the moment I am waiting for, the moment I can't get out of my head, that's the moment that all of this has been about. It feels in these last days leading up to it, like I am swimming in a huge pool and I dove under water, and its beautiful and peaceful and full of warmth and support but all I am waiting for is to come up for air ... and that's what I anticipate that moment will be like for me ... that first burst of fresh air as I come rushing to the surface.
Sigh ...and its just around the corner!!!
