In light of things turning on their heads, I think everything is actually working out for the better. I wanted that day to feel special, to have significance. But as per usual we have no money and no space and there was big debate over what we were doing afterward. . It's going to be his mom and dad and my mom her boyfriend, probably my brothers and my grandparents. Nice and simple and quiet.
After talking with a few friends and my maid of honour, we came up with a solution. Erin might let us use her farm for the after party. So we'll all pile into our respective vehicles and drive a few minutes outside of town to a lovely berry farm. Inside will be delicious food and some bubbly and we'll celebrate until we get bored of each other. Afterward maybe we'll head into town and celebrate at our local hole in the wall with more friends.
Thank God I have awesome friends with beautiful spaces like farms. I'm really looking forward to that day. I feel like it has a purpose now. Plus we're probably going to have delicious champagne and cupcakes afterward! YUM!
