It's been a year and 3 months since our wedding. Time flies. So much has happened and our lives have changed forever in the past year.
Soon after we were married, we were blessed with God's greatest gift to us. We now have a 4+ months old baby boy who is the most handsome in our eyes. Yes we are biased but I believe all parents are :)
Our first wedding anniversary was not much of a celebration because I had just completed my one month of confinement after the delivery. I was struggling in learning how to care for baby and frankly, was very clueless and clumsy. But we were glad for having him with us on our very first anniversary regardless.
What else has happened? Let me see....oh yes! We also had to change our wedding bands because they got too small for our fingers. Haha...is that a sign of "prosperity"? ;) I would like to think so.
We didn't do our honeymoon where we initially planned to because my pregnancy got in the way. But since delivering, we've had 2 holidays together and they more than make up for the "forgotten" honeymoon. Everyday of our married life should be a honeymoon if we think of it as such, right?
After "graduating" from answering the "How's married life?" question, we are now bumped up into the next level. It's like those computer games where you clear one level of difficulty to proceed to the next.
What do you think is the question at Level 2 that we gotta clear?
No prize for guessing it correctly, though.
P/S: If you're asking the question too, the answer is: not right now... ;)
Some posts back, I said I'll write about how Ray charmed our guests (AND ME) at our wedding reception...so here's the post that tells it all.
Before the wedding, he has been frantically looking for the minus-1 for a song by Kenny Rogers called Crazy. Years back when we were dating, he mentioned he'll sing me the song only at our wedding. And true to his words, that's what he did.
He entered the reception belting out the song, and I joined him halfway. Although I never told him in so many words, it is the sweetest thing that anyone has ever done for me. To many, it might be just another wedding reception "gimmick" if you wanna call it that or simply a cliche for the groom to sing his bride a song, but for me it is a lot more than that. I can't pretend it didn't touch me, and now whenever I listen to it, it's so much more than just another love song.
A family friend captured the entire wedding on video and shared it with us. Here's an edited snippet of the reception in Muar to share. You can see me grinning ear to ear, no? :)
Here's the original song by Kenny Rogers and lyrics to the song:
Girl, there are no words to say What I feel in my heart You, you're on my mind night and day And it hurts me when we're apart When you're not here by my side There is nothing in this world for me
I guess I'm crazy, crazy for you can't you see And although you may think it's crazy Here is where I want to be I will always need your love
Now, I can see every dream When I look in your eyes And though things never are what they seem There is one thing that I realize That there's no doubt in my mind We can make this love go on forever
I guess I'm crazy, crazy for you can't you see And although you may think I'm crazy Here is where I'll always be And I need you with me 'cause you are the dream That finally came true for me
And all my life there'll be no one else If I looked all my life there could be no one else And for the rest of my life all I need is you
It's exactly a month since the wedding. It doesn't seem like a complete month has passed us by...but yet it has. Am I enjoying married life thus far? You bet. Is he enjoying married life? His reply to my question was "Oh yeah..."
Ju asked if I will be uploading the rest of our studio shots. I hesitated because there're over 60 of them and the file sizes are quite big. So after some thought, I decided to put them up as a slideshow.
If our friends hadn't put in all the effort and hours to help us during our preparation days as well as on the wedding day itself, we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. They had long days and very little sleep and not a word of complaint. For that, we are deeply grateful. We threw them a thank you dinner over the weekend.
As it turned out, we had even more to celebrate. It was one couple's 6th wedding anniversary that night. We also congratulated another couple on their very recent engagement. Another friend of mine is also getting married and I am honoured to be recruited as one of her chi muis.
Love is in the air...and many more wedding bells are ringing! :)
During the long break that we've been enjoying including this weekend, we've been shopping hard. Before, shopping meant buying mostly stuff like clothes, shoes, bags, you know, the normal stuff a girl shops for. But in the last 2 weeks, shopping has taken on a new definition altogether.
We've been going shopping for the most boring of things - from wall hooks to frying pans to drawer liners amongst other things. It sure sounds like "fun" shopping as husband and wife!
Really, I mean it :) Because it all boils down to us building every nook and corner of the home together.
And while I'm writing this post, my dear hubby is sweeping and mopping the floor. Ain't he a keeper? Not only for this reason. Next time I'll tell you about how he wowed the guests during our wedding reception.
