One moment in time……..

11 Aug

It’s one month today since we got married.

This time last month I was busy getting my hair done (3 hours!!) and frantically trying to round up my family to get them where they needed to be. No, I wasn’t a “Bridezilla” but I may have been close, it depends on who you ask.

One month on, I’ve been up for five hours and am still not dressed. I’m not entirely sure when I last washed my hair or shaved my legs. But I am unreservedly and singularly happy!!

Does marriage change everything? No. Putting on a new shiny ring doesn’t change people, even if they get all dolled up to do it.  It does change some things though. You have to start thinking of yourselves as a “unit”,  more so than when you we dating (or whatever).  Having a child makes that a little more of a challenge. We are a family unit. But we need to be a “united” couple, for we are the foundations upon which this family is based.

One month ago we had a great day. Now, the onus is on us to make this a great life. Should we mark this “anniversary”? Maybe in some small way. It was “one moment in time”, but it was the moment that bonded us together. Forever!!

    lovely post and so true…the wedding is just a moment in time, its what you do with it that matters.

      I hate the “My wedding is my dream” mentality, and the idea of spending tens of thousands on a wedding. It’s not about the wedding. It’s about the marriage. (Spot the newlywed! 😉 )
