(words written by Theodore Roethke/graphic by me)
Friends, thank you so much for the encouraging comments + emails that came this week. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your words were amazing.
I never planned to share those stormy moments from the past few months--every intention was to leave it in the life-vault. My husband and a few others knew, that was enough vulnerability for me. But without complete vulnerability, I could never accurately express why we scrapped a wedding, did things our way. The whole experience was a total life shift, and meant so very much...I'm a bit of a changed woman, and not only because I'm now a wife. :)
Next week, I'm going to keep filling you in on the wedding deets, and it's gonna be a good time. I swear. Because after people ask "Why did you move up your wedding by six months?" their next question is always, "How?!"
Oh, friends. "How" is where it gets interesting. And pretty stinkin' joyful. :)
