“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” — John Steinbeck
My guess is the same is true of a wedding; we’re at 8 days and counting, everything seems in order, but I am fully aware that I am not in control. As a matter of fact, I’m looking forward to all the things I can’t predict or anticipate. They make the best stories anyhow. I think we’re at the point where everything is just going to happen the way it’s going to happen, and I’m actively letting go.
On a completely separate note, I just got the kindest offer from a friend of mine to let us take over her beautiful home next weekend. My girlfriends and I now have room to celebrate and relax the night before and enjoy mimosas from one of three ocean-view balconies on the wedding day. Her words were, “what is the space for if not to share?” I’m touched and excited about this turn of events!
