So, there are a lot of ya'll that have read my blog for many years now, or at least a couple of years. I've been pretty open about most all the stuff that has gone on in my life, for good or for bad. Ya'll have seen me through some pretty rough times and then through some good times. It's funny how much you can seem to get to know or get close to (in an odd kinda way) people that you have never met. Or even seen in some cases. But, I have a confession to make. I've been holding out on ya'll a little and it is time to 'fess up. I'm gonna have to tell you sooner or later.
Jack and I are getting married. Yes, you read that correctly. I am getting married. I am actually going to take that plunge! Jack has wanted to get married for some time but I said I would never be rushed again about such a thing. (My first husband pressured me and it was a definite mistake). So, I told him to cool his heels and I'd make up my mind in my own good time. So, we did. I know we had a few rough starts in the beginning but Jack has proven himself as someone willing, and actually able, to work things out and make the necessary changes to improve things. Not many people will do that. I have to say, he's been better at it than I have probably. I'm a bit more stubborn! But I have learned from him and I'm glad I did. In fact, we both feel we have helped each other to become better people. To be more forgiving and more understanding. I think that's a good deal. He is immensely supportive of all my crazy schemes and endeavors too, but ya'll probably got that from all the stuff he does around here and with helping me with my pottery and everything.
So, we are going to have a small wedding here at the property on October 6. Now, talk about a frugal challenge; this is going to be a good one!! He is going to fork out the money for the honeymoon and rings so I get to do the wedding itself. I get the much better deal! A guy I went to college with is actually making our rings; I think they are going to be way cool. I'll show them to ya'll when they are finished. We just went down yesterday to the guy's shop to get sized and finalized the design and such so it will be about 2 weeks or so before they are finished. It is just going to be 2 wedding bands. I see no reason for an engagement ring and all that crap. I think all the time and effort Jack has put in around here is betrothment enough!
So, anyway, I'll show ya'll anythings I make for the ceremony and how I save money on the whole thing although I can tell you now, that's just mainly going to be through it being a very simple deal. My brother is a minister, the chickens are going to be the bridesmaids and I can bake a cake! lol!! But, don't worry men, it won't be non-stop wedding talk until that day (I know how much that would thrill you)! I'll just post an occasional update.
