Hi hive! Just dropping in real quick…to say an official goodbye. It seems like just yesterday that I started writing here - another part of the whirlwind experience that is planning a wedding and getting married. It’s been so much fun telling you all about us, our wedding, and to get to know you all.

Wolfman and I eased into being married very smoothly and are really enjoying it. Whenever anyone asks me what it’s like, I always joke and say it’s exactly the same as before…but that’s not quite honest. True, not much in our day to day lives changed. We already lived together, we co-parent a dog, and are fairly ingrained in each other’s families. But there are small things - courtesies we extend each other, favors and compliments we pay - that have only come to light with the addition of our wedding rings. It’s a thrill to hear Wolfman refer to me as his wife. It’s lovely to wake up every morning already haven done one thing correctly - chosen the guy waking up next to me.

I read an interview in the AV Club with Aziz Ansari soon after our honeymoon. Discussing his love life, Aziz said:
"Look, I like going out and I like being single, but a growing part of me would rather just stay home, cook food with someone I really like, and do nothing. Well, that’s not a really strong pitch, “Come cook food with me and do nothing.”
Well, I disagree. I think that’s a really strong pitch, and I can’t tell you how happy I am cooking food and doing nothing with Wolfman. Planning a wedding is something I’ll always remember fondly - and even for awhile after it was over I was bummed - but I’m glad to finally just be enjoying my husband…and enjoying Weddingbee as a spectator. Thanks for all your lovely comments and feedback…you all really know how to make a bride feel special. :)
(P.S. Speaking of Aziz, you HAVE to watch the clip of Aziz talking about how insane marriage is. Hilarious…and kind of puts a funny perspective on a wedding!)
