Finally! Pictures!

We got pics back from the wedding! Here’s a sampling; slide show is coming. This also means we can finish thank-you cards! Bet y’all thought we forgot. 🙂

A beautiful day, night

I’m still in bliss. The wedding went wonderfully, with only a few hitches, a stuck heel and an army of kitchen helpers for the reception. More details and pictures later.

Tuxedo to do

A little formal wear frivolity…


And the following picture is the number one reason my friend Ann should love me forever.

She doesn’t have to wear this dress to my wedding.

Procrastinators of the world unite! Tomorrow!

Paula writes:

Our wedding day has officially arrived!

Are we ready? Hell yes. Ready to be married anyway. For the ceremony and reception…not so much.

It is almost 1am and we are still feverishly working to get ready.

Poor Joe is probably very tired of saying “It’s going to be ok baby, I promise.”

I have never seen someone work as hard to make another person happy as Joe has done with me. I love him so much.

I want to second Joe’s earlier post thanking all the people who have helped us out. We could not have gotten through this without all of you. Thank you all so much.

Wedding is tomorrow!

Joe writes:

I had cold feet.

Seriously, I did. It’s because there’s an air conditioner vent right by my feet below the computer. So, I put on some socks, and I don’t have cold feet anymore.

Paula is tired of that joke, truth be told. But the wedding is less than 24 hours away. And the kindness of many has blown my mind.

Thank you Tara, Genevieve, Ann, Mom, Dad, Judy, Michael Sowers of Well Fed Head, and anyone else we have forgotten. This wedding wouldn’t have come together without you. Don’t worry, proper thanks are coming. I’m just overflowing right now.

The wedding is at 2 p.m. tomorrow. We’ll post a quick note and pic after the wedding and before the reception. Then we will drink margaritas and display frivolity. Woot!

I LOVE THIS WOMAN!

Boy oh Boy

I have my boys with me and I am about to marry the man I love.

Life is good.

Inside the music: Dig

Paula writes:

Joe has kind of taken over the posting lately because typing is a challenge since the surgery. But here goes.

“Dig” is an awesome song by Incubus. Fair warning though, it might get stuck in your head.

We all have a weakness
Some of ours are easy to identify
Look me in the eye, and ask for forgiveness
We’ll make a pact to never speak that word again
Yes, you are my friend
We all have something that digs at us,
At least we dig each other

So when weakness turns my ego up
I know you’ll count on the me from yesterday
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone

We all have a sickness
That cleverly attaches and multiplies
No matter how we try
We all have someone that digs at us,
At least we dig each other

So when sickness turns my ego up
I know you’ll act as a clever medicine
If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other
When everything else is gone
Each other when everything else is gone

If I turn into another
Dig me up from under what is covering
The better part of me
Sing this song
Remind me that we’ll always have each other,
When everything else is gone
Each other

This song is just an great reminder that no matter how much the world is getting on our nerves we always have each other. Having each other to lean on gives us the strength we need to get through the tough times.

It is also a reminder of something that all couples should think about. When you know someone as well as you know your life partner, you know all of their buttons(“we all have something that digs at us”) and exactly how to push them. But loving someone comes with the responsibility not to push those buttons. If we fight we have to remember it is our job to protect our partner and our relationship. We shouldn’t try to win the argument at all costs by resorting to pushing our loved ones buttons. Make the discussion about the issue, not about each other.

Hmmm… sorry about the rant. It’s late.

Anyway, great song.
