I now introduce Mr. & Mrs. Squid

It came and went, and we’re exhausted. An entire day off work today to just relax, was the best thing I could have ever done. Who knew dancing so much would make my legs unable to function?

The wedding was fab. Couldn't have been more perfect. It’ll be a few weeks before the pictures come back from the photographers, so this post will be short of professional wedding pictures. But fear not, I have a few from a friend.

Last I wrote about my +1 for the wedding, it was still a secret. I didn’t now if the plan would fall through, so I didn’t want to talk about it and get excited. Turns out it worked out perfectly.

My date for the wedding was RJ!! The X let me against court orders take RJ for the entire weekend. It. Was. Amazing. At times it was overwhelming, but it was definitely a learning experience and I don’t regret one second of it. During the reception, RJ had a song dedicated to me. While Richard Marx sang Right Here Waiting, we danced and sang to each other. I was crying, and so were a few other people watching. RJ kept wiping my tears away, but he couldn’t keep up. They just kept falling. They were happy tears. I was in heaven.

Seeing friends and family was fantastic. Reuniting with some people always makes me realize why it’s so long between visits. ha.


  1. LOL, I know about seeing folks after a long while and you hope you never see them again.

    Glad the wedding went over good.

  2. Glad you had fun. I know all about family weddings! :+)
