What day is it? And in what month?
This clock never seemed so alive
I can’t keep up and I can’t back down
I’ve been losing so much time
Cause it’s you and me and all of the people
With nothing to do, nothing to lose
And it’s you and me and all of the people
And I don’t know why, I can’t keep my eyes off of you
I have to say, this song was inspired by the breathtaking pictures taken by Gabriel Mendes at Stella’s wedding. The dude and I had the pleasure of attending her church ceremony and just like before, the beautiful ceremony got soppy me all teary-eyed, goosebumps prickling my back. I’m not quite sure why it always gets to me: is it the stately walk down the aisle, knowing that the couple have only eyes for each other across that narrow lane? Is it the handing off the bride to her groom, the beginning of a new chapter? Could it be the vows said so solemnly and purely in these awe-inspiring locations? Is it the finality of it all – that the marriage is now recognised and bound by God? Big sobs.
The bride was beautiful, as she has always been since we first met in JC. And though this might sound crazy, I thought her veil was gorgeous! I’ve got an unhealthy obsession for veils and now that I am on the hunt for the perfect veil (I have a feeling I am might end up with, like, five of those ridiculously expensive scraps of tulle), I just can’t help but notice how exquisitely vintage hers looked!
Aww….anyway, I’m happy she’s married the nice and cool Lester who clearly adores her and whom she adores.
And then there was the good news that Abs shared with me today. While we were chatting (I was squealing and going “OMG!!!” a lot), I suddenly remembered why I decided to give us a second chance four years ago. It’s this feeling of “he’s the one” – I never had that with other people. And then, when I was with him, the emotion was so intense and yet so comfortable, so good, so right.
We may not be perfect beings but I think we are good together. No, we’re better together! Hurrah!
