Today is our 6 month wedding anniversary but we previously dated for 10 years. We are high school sweethearts. On a sunny afternoon, in what used to be an old jam factory with a tiny garden, we got married surrounded by our family and our closest friends. It was an “urban garden party”, with cupcakes and lemonade, hors d’oeuvres and organic wine. A violin and a cello were playing lovely music and 45 little potted plants (our favors) were decorating the room. It was simple yet elegant.
To celebrate our “we are still together after 6 months” anniversary, my husband got me one of Ella’s beautiful dolls. It’s actually a substitute for our “tree of life” which is now in rehab at my mom’s house. The tree (aka giant potted plant) was suppose to represent our growing relationship as husband and wife. People were also invited to write their wishes on little cards and tied them with ribbons to its branches. To make a long story short, after only one month, the tree was in pretty bad shape. In conclusion, you don’t need to have a green thumb to have an happy marriage…and a doll is very low maintenance!
