Let's Do Tea
Let's do tea, shall we?
I'll be sipping a cup of hot green or brewed chai tea. 2 Splenda.
If you asked me how things were going, I'd smile and say, "Wonderful. 12-days to go."
I'd tell you about my dress, the flowers, the cake, and I might tell you a little bit about our music.
I'd tell you that most of it is finished, except that I still have appointments every single day after work.
I'd tell you about all of the generous friends who are pitching in to help.
I'd tell you that I had a meeting Saturday that took so much of the pressure off my shoulders, and that my outlook is so sunny and bright now.
I'd also tell you about the people who I haven't seen in years who are making the trek out to see us.
What a blessing that is.
I'd tell you how Daniel's family (his brothers and one brother's fiancè) moved home this weekend.
We'd laugh about the fun times we had yesterday in our packed house with 7 adults and 5 dogs.
I'd also tell you about the delicious homemade meal his mom made for us last night. Mac and cheese, rolls, and green beans.
I'd then also express just a tiny bit of relief that one brother is moving out today, and the other brother and his fiancè will be in their new apartment in a little over a week.
Because even though I love them, I also love the peace and quite of our house as well.
Of course, I'd ask about you. About life. About plans. About your job, your blog, your dreams.
I'd probably want to ask about you a lot more than I'd want to talk about me.
All the while, we'd laugh, we'd sip our hot drinks, and enjoy the atmosphere of a cozy Boise coffee shop.
And then, when the stories were told and the drinks were empty, I'd make you promise we can do it again soon.
Until next time...
