Technically it’s the end of the day on Wednesday, so it’s really three days and an evening! I wanted to document this experience.
So here I am, 46 years old, and I’m getting married. If you would ask me five years ago if this day would come, I probably would have said “no to maybe.” When Ted and I started talking about what type of wedding we would want, long before we were actually engaged, I really had to start from scratch. I realize that I never really thought this would happen.
You know how there’s some moments in your life that you just can’t forget? I remember going to Venice, and talking to my roommate about how I realized in one of the most romantic towns in all of the world that I likely was never going to have children, and I didn’t know if I’d ever get married. I did say that I wanted to take a gondola ride for the love of my life. So I need to make that happen on my honeymoon!
I want to clarify about the no children thing since I’m about to be a stepmom. I made the decision not to have biological children because I didn’t want to pass on my depression and anxiety. This is not to say that I don’t love children and I’m not thrilled to have the twins in my life.
I have many thoughts to share about my love for Ted, but I will likely write them after the wedding because I shared some of my thoughts with our officiant. All I’ll say is I feel so fortunate to have met and will be marrying such a wonderful man, father, son, brother, and friend. ❤️
