i'm in Turkey!
probably in Istanbul, but since we didn't really plan anything beyond buying our flights
here's a little post i prepared in advance
something to keep you all entertained in my absence
and it's somewhat wedding-themed...
since we are quickly nearing the first anniversary of our wedding day!
(which was 05.28.10)
this is my wedding dress.
i bought it.
from a bridal boutique.
not the most original way to obtain a wedding dress, i know.
and in all honesty,
to buy a wedding dress and pay full price for it
and do the "normal" things like have it altered, go for fittings, etc
just go against the grain of how i normally go about my life
i just don't usually go the path of least resistance.
but for me,
it was an act of rebellion.
my mom made her wedding dress
like, sewed it herself.
it looked beautiful on her
but i wanted to do something different than what my mom did.
so i bought a wedding dress.
and i LOVE it.
i hope i still fit into it the next time i try it on :)
and i could never sell it
or give it away
or let a stranger wear it.
it's just wayyy too personal for me.
it wasn't just a dress.
it was MY dress.
my wedding dress.
the dress i wore when i promised forever to Nick
and i'm not sure i will ever feel more beautiful than i did that day.
and that means something to me.
so i'm keeping it.
and that's how i feel about it.
just in case you were wondering
which you weren't.
but now you know!
