Cupcakes, vows, and all you need is love

by singlemomseeking on September 14, 2010

Our wedding countdown is on. In less than two weeks, we’ll be surrounded by family and friends under oak trees, as our insightful mutual friend, Ronnie — the one who tried to set us up years ago — officially marries us.

Last night, I was re-reading an email from Ronnie, dated two weeks after I’d met my guy at her book launch party. She was responding to my gushing confession. I really liked her cute friend! She had written back:

I just want you to know that I’m 100 percent for this relationship working out, because you both are extraordinary people and deserve each other.

I’m so grateful to her. Heck, I am feeling grateful to everyone right now: my family, my friends, all of you.  I’m so thankful to my future in-laws for letting us throw this love fest in their backyard… with more than 100 adults and 25 (!) kids. It seems like a long time ago when I wrote on this blog about my childhood friend who invited me — but not my daughter — to her wedding. I threw a small tantrum back then, but I now see why some folks do go for kid-free weddings.

Well, our wedding will be kid-plenty. In true kid-fashion, we’re going for cupcakes over a traditional wedding cake. And in addition to the home-brewed beer (one of which we are calling “Matrimony IPA”), there’s going to be an alcohol-free slushy machine.

In the meantime, I’ve tried to steal away (imagine five minutes in between taking a shower and packing a school lunch this morning) to finish my vows. We’ve decided not to share our vows with each other — well, until it’s time.
