Before you remind us of the obvious; you’re right. Our October wedding is still two months away (exactly 60 days, if you were wondering). But, in the lost year of Covid, we have leaned into the romance. Three months ago, we got dressed up and legally married, in a perfect ceremony, just us two. This month, on August 1, we celebrated three months of secret wedded bliss by renewing our vows on the top of Deer Mountain Inn, just as we had imagined it when we planned our perfect wedding. Tears and improvised vows; the flower crown we just happened to have on hand. Polka dots and stripes. Wild and sweet. His and hers. Have and hold.
In two months, we will, again, renew our vows. A renewal on loop. Keeping our hearts full and our promises fresh. Forever has already started and it will never end.
