Tiny bits of random thoughts from Wife of 36 days — Scripting Happiness

Tiny bits of random thoughts from Wife of 36 days

Getting married and becoming a wife is a big deal in Scripting Happiness. If you’re wondering what life looks like 36 days after the big “W” day, here’s my take.

  1.  Planning a wedding turned out to be a mini test to see if we can work well as a team. Navigating two sets of families, friends, taking everyone into consideration and keeping to a budget was tough.
  2. We took dance lessons and found to our surprise that we really enjoyed it. Now we have a hobby we can enjoy for years to come.
  3. I have no regret about not buying center pieces or not being color coordinated. I do wish we skipped the fancy bouquets and picked up flowers from the corner flower stand instead.
  4. It was decidedly the happiest day of my life. I find myself reliving all the precious happy moments in my head. (It’s like daydreaming but about something that’s already happened.)
  5. That $4,000 dress that I really wanted? It seems completely insane that I even struggled with that decision. It’s a dress that I would’ve worn for 5 hours. That’s $800/hr. I rented mine. No regrets there.
  6. All the details that I spent months obsessing over? It really didn’t matter that much. I wish someone would’ve told me this much much earlier.
  7. Just like life in general, s*** happens. Our caterer showed up an hour late and a man short. Yes, I was freaking out but it turned out okay. I’m glad we didn’t have to resort to Plan B and order pizza. But if it did happen, it would’ve made a good story.
  8. I love our wedding photos. I feel so happy whenever I see it. I hope it always bring me the same sense of joy.
  9. I still feel a bit tickled when I say “… my husband.” It seems so special each time I say it.
  10. Getting back to life post “W” and 10 days of honeymoon was harder than anticipated. It gave us much needed breathing space to contemplate what’s really important to us and prioritize.
Thanks to @MrsJenBardall for encouraging me to put my thoughts in writing!
