Shells In Ivory

We just got our first response card back for the wedding. Talk about getting excited! Isn't it silly that it feels more real now? I mean we have been wanting it for over a year. And we have been planning it in our heads and now finally through contracts and decisions. And it is the talk of work right now. I am guessing that won't stop until the day arrives. I am not the one bringing it up at work. I am the one going, "What wedding? Oh yeah. Now about this grant application...." It is more powerful than the first time I did this. But also without the nerves and fretting over needless details. It's me and him on a beach promising forever with so much more knowledge of what that means now. He will never be my "second husband." He is the one and only.
