It's been over a decade and I can finally look at the colors pink and brown and not have a visceral reaction. Why exactly did I think getting married smack dab in the middle of the holidays was a great idea? I am not sure? But it happened and although we only bother to celebrate the actual day once every 3 years or so, the love is still strong. And every year when friends send me pictures of our favor and remind me of the fun day, I realize December 29 was a great day to be married.
