I had a long day today. My hands hurt after tying 220 bows, my back hearts from standing and from carrying Iona in my arms.
I thought I would relax while doing some web browsing. I usually do, but tonight I am closing the browser thinking about all those that feed the wedding industry. I know them, I talk to them every day. It's all about the right colour, the perfect dress, the uniqueness of the event.
I cannot stop wondering when and how did we loose the essence? Why isn't a simple wild flower bouquet and a classic announcement enough? Why is it more about the decor than the actual act of marriage?
Unfortunately we are taking this into our married lives too. Work and more work, fast food, fast cars, little love. As I was reading Anca's post tonight, I decided to live the essence. Tonight I have the option to shut down my computer and spend some quality time with my family, maybe clean the dust of that bible.
Good night, friends!
