Blog Every Day in May [Day 31]


Day 31, Friday: A vivid memory
I've thought LONG and hard about this post,
being that it's the LAST post of the challenge
and I really don't wanna just phone it in slacker style.

I have a few vivid memories
from childhood,
college
and in my 'grown up life'.

After much hemmin' and hawwin'
and worryin' that this was too much of a cop-out
I decided to go with my MOST recent
VIVID memory.

!!!!!!!!!!!THIS!!!!!!!!!!!


and THIS


 Even though IN the moment, I couldn't remember
EVERYTHING GOING ON,
now I can look back and vividly remember
how I felt and what I saw.

I can V-I-V-I-D-L-Y
remember:
The candles burning
The smell of roses
The sight of lil fake diamonds everywhere

I can V-I-V-I-D-L-Y
recall:
My heart being in my throat
Trying to process "IS THIS REAL
or am I DREAMING"

I  V-I-V-I-D-L-Y
recollect:
The moment I walked in the door
and the moment I understood
MY MOMENT HAD COME.

Are some details hazy,
HECK YES!
 [but I'm lucky, two sissys are smart
so I have a video of the whole process!
thanks sissys...weeeeee!]

But, I still can close my eyes and
 remember how C looked,
the smell of Jack Daniels
almost dropping my phone
watching him going down on one knee
and the moment he place the ring on my finger
and said those 5 special words.

What they say is true ladies,
time really does stop and all of a sudden
it's just you and he and BOOM
I'm a MRS.TO.BE!

THANK YOU for giving me SUCH an amazing
and special moment.
I LOVE YOU!
