yet important. Last night I nicked two blank flash cards from our ‘let’s practise vocab for the GRE-pile’ and wrote our vows on them.

I really like that accidental symbol. We both see this wedding as a first step leading up to bigger life ambitions of going back to school (him), of moving to another continent (us), re-starting a career and trying to live off a keyboard (me) and generally making this planet our oyster (us).

It makes me wonder how we’ll look back on the start of it all 10, 25 years from now.

    I think today is the day ? Here is sending you lots of magic, love, joy and happiness. I always say this phrase to friends when they marry , by Antoine de Saint Exupery : “Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.”

    Thank you, Amanda. It was a gorgeous day. What you said in one of your previous comments – about how all the energy you put into it just comes back to you all at once – that’s so true.

    We’ve just come back home after the wedding night and well.. everything was way better than I had dared to hope for. People were on their best behaviour and everybody seemed so full of love and happiness. It was a kind of magic. I love how we could just have our closest family there and see everybody starting to feel connected.

    As to quote from Le Petit Prince (because that’s what the quote is from, right?): it’s spot on. That book is full of wisdom.
