Happily Ever After


Don't ya just love weddings?? Although my mother has always scorned me for never having an "official" goo-goo gah-gah wedding, I remain glad in a way that I never put myself through all of that. Weddings are the kind of places that you get stupid memories like this (above). A groom being so nervous that he can't blow out the unity candle, or someone getting blitzed at the reception and doing something crazy. So maybe I should have had a real wedding... who knows.

Richie and I just got up one day, threw on jeans and sweaters and headed down to the Courts, got the only JP that wasn't out for the holiday (being December 28) and got hitched! Then he was so freaked out and frozen over the whole deal and the fact that we'd actually gone through with it, even though he was the one who brought the whole thing up in the beginning, that we never really went on an Official "Honeymoon". That kind of sucks. I never get to travel to many places, and I always wished we had gone somewhere cool.

But, we saved the money and ended up being able to buy a house around six months or so later... That's cool too I guess. Then again, I am so freakin ready to move out of my neighborhood. Maybe I'm just going crazy and wanting changes all the way around.

The point is I guess, writing things here, and all of your responses about being positive and looking towards the future do not go without merit! I have been thinking about these things a lot. It's true. We really can't live in the past, even if we have wonderful memories of the past.

In fact, having those magical, delicious memories is just positive proof that we have truly lived life up until this point. But if we stay stuck in those great memories, we stifle out the flame, and die in the "now". As I have said before, you don't really know what the future holds, whether you have a tomorrow or even a "later on today"... It's all about living in the moment... here, now!

It's what we do with each and every moment we are blessed with that determines if we can look back and laugh at something that happened yesterday, if we are indeed lucky enough to have tomorrow.

Thanks, guys, every one of you for always trying to spread an encouraging and uplifting word. That includes my best friend, Tamra, my Parents, sisters & nieces (when they act right), other great friends in my life like "Jinks" and all of you terrific bloggers too! I'm not promising I won't bitch and whine here and there, but just know your kind words do not fall on blind eyes or deaf ears (that is if I don't let Rock and Roll kill me-lol).

Have a great Saturday, and hey live Happily Ever After WITH me!

Nothing wrong with that Jaxx. Hugs to you.
