I apologize for my absence for the last month and a half. Life and work gets really busy for us (and the rest of the world) around the holidays. In the last month alone we have traveled about 2,000 miles and have attended three weddings! Going to so many weddings had me reminiscing about our own, so let the recaps recommence!
When I left off we had just ended our short rehearsal and it was time to say goodnight to all of the extended family. I scheduled our rehearsal dinner/rehearsal to end early (8:30) on purpose so I could spend some time with some of my good friends who had come in to town for our wedding. Amarillo doesn’t have a ton of night life, so we opted to go to a late movie.

While the guys opted to see Ted the ladies took a different route and chose to watch Channing Tatum shirtless for two hours. I was so excited to be able to have some fun with my friends, but for whatever reason, my mood was starting to turn from relaxed and happy to sad/upset/somber. Something about being in the same place where Mr. Scepter and I had began our relationship, exactly 10 years earlier, made me super aware of what was going to happen the next day and all of the emotions I had been suppressing for three days bubbled to the top and began to cause an inward freakout.
I wanted to say an official “the next time I see you we will be getting married goodbye” to Mr. Scepter, so I met him in the lobby of the movie theatre in attempt say goodnight and calm my freakout.
After our goodnight we parted ways to enjoy the movies with our friends. I loved getting to spend that time with my friends, but to be honest by moodiness persisted. All I could do was go to sleep, and hope the next day would bring a new mood. Did you experience any weird mood swings before your wedding?
