Our family is in the midst of celebrating my sister-in-law’s engagement. She is busy planning and all this wedding planning activity is making me reminisce about my own wedding. Fear not… I am not about to write countless entries about how I planned it all.
But I will share an interesting fact about hubby and I that only our siblings and parents and two witnesses know. Although most guests think that we were married on June 1st, 2008, we were really married on September 15th, 2007. Oh and we did it in-style — in Quaker Style.
Why? Because we got engaged in September 2006 and planned to marry in June 2008 and at some point decided that we were happy and in love and we wanted to be married … now… we didn’t need to wait. Because there was something incredibly appealing about doing it OUR way, very privately, with just two witnesses and only our parents in attendance. It was casual… my mother-in-law baked a wedding cake for us as a surprise. Here’s us cutting into it.
We didn’t tell anyone about it because we didn’t want to distract from the wedding planned on June 1st. It was a classy affair.
