all of the groomsmen, my brothers, and my dad carried that thrifted piano from the barn to the edge of the pond. it was – it is – one of my favorite memories. all he did was suggest how neat it would be to have an upright instead of a keyboard and i ran with the idea. YES. we must make this happen – it will be SO beautiful.
and it was.
an accidental glance at wedding photos, turned a solid hour poring over the beauty. the innocence. the stress. the relief of a vision made reality with the support of all of our loves, in one place.
full disclosure – it still confuses me.
how was i supposed to know what i didn’t know, what i didn’t have the capacity to know before? and – we really did love each other, so much.
i was the firecracker to your calm.
