A day of such incredible joy and small sweet moments.
Looking over at Liv during the short ceremony, her eyes swimming in tears, leaning against her Father. Smiling her jack-o-lantern smile.
Bing's surprisingly warm hands in the cold outside ceremony where we had a shockingly 48 degree day in DECEMBER. On the prairie. We took a risk. It could have been a blizzard.
The ring that we bought for her and she has agreed to wear, shocking me.
All the friends and family smiling. Smiling. Smiling. What had started as a just us and two witnesses at the courthouse had somehow turned into a smallish ceremony that was really more like mediumish.
My dress. (Free People, Calamity Jane Dress in the color "cloud" if you are inclined to look it up....) Bing's burst of laughter when she read the tag on the back that pronounced it Calamity Jane.
"Yes," she said. "To marry you is to court calamity."
And afterwards, the crazy reception in the strange little diner that Bing found. Everyone laughing over the insane dream that I had a few nights ago. Eating pancakes or pie or sausage and biscuits. Bing playing the piano for me, a song that I had never heard before while Vince and Thuan sang in perfect harmony.
Yes, we are the luckiest.
