Words are inadequate to describe this year.
Photos will have to suffice.
Here's to a new year!
I've noticed something recently. The eyes of little people staring... Staring at me. Staring at beau. Staring at us as a couple. As creepy as it sounds (and feels), I have come to understand why they stare.From my understanding, they have rarely seen a young couple married and in love before. My home church has some married folks in it, but Beau and I are by the far the youngest. We don’t take this lightly. We see it as an opportunity to set an example for the younger ones.Maybe I will touch more on this in future blog posts.
Beau and I are in the finishing stages of preparing for our wedding this weekend. There are still a few tiny details and decisions that need to be ironed out. One of them is the deciding whether or not to wear my glasses for the entirety of our big day.I have been wearing my glasses for 14 years now (since I was 7 years old) and have seen it as an extension of myself. However, I considered removing them for the ceremony in order to achieve what I thought would be 'better looking photos'. I planned on using the little vision that I have to be able to make it down the aisle and throughout the day, but after reviewing our engagement photos (where I removed my glasses for all of the photos), I would feel much more comfortable wearing them because I look much better with them on and because of the insecurities I have surrounding my exotropia.I am still a little worried about wearing glasses for fear of the awful glare with flash photography and having them look cumbersome with a veil, but I researched photos of brides wearing glasses, and found that they were all beautiful and glare free.
