Sarah asked me to do a reading for their ceremony, so of course I said yes! And come to find out, it was the same first reading we had at our wedding!! It's such a beautiful reading, I couldn't help but share here:
Hark! My lover! Here he comes,
springing across the mountains,
leaping across he hills.
My lover is like a gazelle
or a young stag.
See! He is standing behind our wall,
gazing through the windows,
peering through the lattices.
My lover speaks and says to me,
"Arise, my friend, my beautiful one, and come!
My dove in the clefts of the rock,
in the secret recesses of the cliff,
Let me see your face, let me hear your voice,
For your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely."
My lover belongs to me and I to him,
He says to me,
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
For Love is strong as Death,
longing is fierce as Sheol.
Its arrows are arrows of fire, flames of the divine.
Deep waters cannot quench love,
nor rivers weep it away.
Song of Songs 2:8-10, 14, 16a; 8:6-7a
My husband gets teary-eyed whenever he hears it. So sweet.
We got pedicures! My mom, my sister, my niece, and even the little nephew joined in on the fun. Although he was just hanging around. No painted toes for him.
Pedicures are always a fun treat, no?
My niece got bright pink toes with pink glitter hearts, obviously, and then tried to get the rest of us to add glitter to our toes. It was cute.
And I got this fun color that I totally spied on some random lady's toes as they were finishing her pedi. I had already picked out a color, but that went out the window when I spotted that purpley fun!
My husband is holding the flower girl's bouquet. Your argument is invalid.
It's fun getting all snazzified for a wedding. Totally rocked that Stitch Fix dress. And my husband always looks dapper in a suit. Dapper, I say!
That's all for now, folks! Peace and love and a happy week to you all!
