“How far to heaven? Just open your eyes and look. You are in heaven” -Shankar
October 4, 2008.
I love weddings. It’s a party to celebrate two people in love. That’s a pretty awesome excuse for a party. Small weddings, big weddings, formal weddings, casual weddings. All make me happy. I’ve been to plenty of weddings. Twelve in 2009 alone! But of all the weddings I attended, my favorite was obviously my own.
It was a PARTY! We had yummy southern food, plenty of drinks, an amazing DJ and hours of ridiculous dancing. And my hair? Totally perfect.
But, the perfection of day wasn’t just about the party (or the hair). Those were just an added bonus. The perfection was found in the love. The love I had (and have) for Brett. The love proclaimed and blessed before God. The love flowing from the friends and family in attendance, most of whom had traveled hefty distances to celebrate with us. Being surrounded by that love, just before my very first dance with my husband, is my interpretation of heaven.
