The Wedding Day
Today I'd like to derail off of writing and talk about weddings. In exactly three days, I am off to India for 3 weeks to attend our friends' wedding ceremony and my brother-in-law's engagement.
Some girls grow up dreaming of their wedding day their whole life. They plan out every single little detail from the dress, the flowers, to the music, to even the groom.
I was not such a little girl. I never wanted to get married. I always thought the concept of being a "wife" was so archaic and wrong. "Mrs. Something" UGH!
Of course I changed my mind when I fell in love with my best friend. After signing a fair amount of pacts and making a ton of promises, we bit the bullet and just went for it.
If you've ever seen Monsoon Wedding, Bend It Like Beckham or Bride and Prejudice, you know how crazy our weddings can be, but also how important they are to our culture. They are occaisons that bring entire families together to celebrate a happy moment.
I've posted a few pics of my wedding 4 years ago. The top left set is of the before. The one in the middle is the during. The one at the bottom is of M and I together after the ceremony. Since I'll be out of country for a while (the ENTIRE month of December), I'll see you all in January.

Have an excellent New Year everyone!
