10 Sips for the Weekend: 10 wedding inspirations

Today we turn seven. My husband and I turn seven years of marriage today. (BTW the reason we got married 2 days before Christmas is material for another post!) Seven years of pure bliss! (this statement will score some points, maybe he will do all the dishes tonight!)

Eight years ago I wrote something similar to the text below, except in Portuguese. It was part of a book I was writing (that never got published, another project added to my bucket list!) It was a few months after I had met my other half, and I am sure that wedding dreams were all over my head. Today I decided to translate it to English, and here it is. A little gift to my soul mate (as this is the first time he will read it) and to all of you out there that are having wedding dreams!

"One step at a time I move forward, sure of the path I decided to follow. I can feel the veil touching my face as I move, my eyes and lips smiling. What in the world could feel better than just advancing forward? What other path could be more worthy of taking?

The music that reaches my ears, touches my soul. I can feel every tune inspiring drops of emotion in my blood. Its harmony levitates me above the carpet. My feelings chat with the orchestra as good old friends. My vocal cords, while resting, are vibrating as much as the melody.

On my hands, the most beautiful flower bouquet. Beautiful for its meaning in my life. Its petals softly touching my fingers, spreading their perfume on my skin. Even holding a small sample of Nature's vitality, I can feel its life renewing mine.

The path ahead is completely reserved for me. Free of obstacles, impediments or crowds. I am not following anyone, but I know which direction to go. I am following my heart. Protecting its beats, the white silky dress rests as a feather. No weight, no pressure, no tightness. Just like the decision I am making.

Yet nothing compares to the sparkling eyes that I sight a few feet ahead irradiating my path. My lighthouse in the midst of a multitude of tearful looks. My compass, my trophy, my treasure. My journey's goal ahead. The complement missing in my outfit. The complement missing in my life. The men I chose to spend the rest of my life with."

Happy Anniversary Dear!
