A journalist observes life in the far north.
I’m not down on marriage. I think what I have now is more or less marriage. But I’m down on weddings. Mostly I don’t want to deal with the hassle of planning one and carrying it out.
I mean, dinner parties stress me out. They’re a lot of work. A wedding would be 10 times worse, right?
But today I saw a happy bride and groom, enjoying a lovely party. That’s what I want too.
Alec wasn’t keen on planning our wedding right then and there. This couple’s celebration was far from what his dreams is for us. (Whatever that dream may be.)
But he didn’t make a sour face when I suggested we do a small ceremony in our home on our awesome new deck, which Alec is currently building.
I just want a pretty dress, flowers, good food and people around me who love me for me.
And nice pictures like the one above of me and Jade in a field of fireweed at the lovely wedding reception.
