Wedding recaps

They are coming, I promise you. Just slowly. I guess I am just a little afraid that if I write about the whole wedding and show all the photos it will be over. Officially over. And I don't want it to be. I want it to be real. Not just a memory of a great day.

Because it was a great day. One that I didn't want to end. I kept thinking "this is our wedding day. the one day I will look back on more than any other. remember it all, least you forget". I keep thinking back to the day {the good and the one bad moment - getting my period on the way to the church...} and wanting to be back there.

At the German wedding 'informal' pre-wedding drinks on the Friday night (read very formal) I kept looking around for my family and then remembering that it wasn't about us any more. In the space of 3 weeks we became an old married couple, handing on the newly wed baton to the next of our friends. We weren't centre of attention. we were guests. it was odd. But nice.

I replied to the rest of the summers wedding invitations last night. Writing Mr and Mrs M... B... thank Mr and Mrs xyz was actually rather satisfying. It's hard getting used to my new surname though. Especially with all my job applications in my old one and all my social things in my new one.

I guess what I am saying is that I am slowly getting used to being married. And soon, soon, will come the rest of the recaps.

You started on the way to the church?! Oh no!

Take your time with the recaps. There's no rush. :)

It's tough recapping, because you feel like you can't describe it all and then also that what is down on 'paper' is what you will remember. I worry now that my memories are my photos and not that my photos reflect my memories.

And on the name thing, hell yeah, still get called by my old name, still so much stuff in my old name... One day!
