Today would’ve been just like any other Thursday. Any other lame Thursday.
But it wasn’t.
The weather was partly cloudy, breezy, a little chilly out but not quite. But that isn’t what makes this Thursday different from any other Thursday.
Matt and I are trying a cleanse for a few days…the kind where you drink exorbitant amounts of lemonade and peppermint tea. But that isn’t what makes this Thursday different from any other Thursday.
I’m cleaning the house like mad and doing laundry. But that isn’t what makes this Thursday different from any other Thursday (because I do that every Thursday, so it doesn’t count).
We may settle down on the couch later and watch a movie…while we sip peppermint tea. But that isn’t what makes this Thursday different from any other Thursday.
What makes this Thursday different is that 3 months ago today, right now, we were enjoying our beautiful wedding reception.
After a day full of anticipation and excitement, getting ready, our “first look,” lots of picture taking, and walking down to the beach to say our vows on the most perfect afternoon God ever created. The sun was slowly setting and the lights strung over the tables were getting brighter as dusk fell. There was the sound of talking and laughter, the clinking of silverware against plates and ice cream dishes. The candles in the hurricane vases were flickering. There was family and friends and my new husband sitting next to me. …just a surreal, happy, lovely time.
So, today 3 months ago is what made my Thursday. If that makes sense 😉
And even though I know 3 months really isn’t any time at all in the scheme of things, every anniversary with the man of my dreams is one worth celebrating.
