'Bout to be a Bride Again
Updated: Jul 14, 2019
Three years ago when I was visiting my family in Washington State for the summer, I discovered two things: Spotify, and a song that grabbed me by my throat and filled my stomach with butterflies. I texted Josh, telling him about the song and asking him, "Will we ever get married again? Will we ever actually really do it?"
"Of course!" he texted back.
I smiled to myself and wiped the tears from my eyes and began to, in my spare time, dream up the details of a day I knew would come, but had no idea when.
And then life just has a way of happening! We found out our building was going to be torn down and replaced with a larger-than-life luxury high-rise, forcing us to find a new apartment after nine years. We had many family, medical-related expenses. Max had the amazing opportunities to travel abroad. And we also began to experience the ultimate of life's tests. Dearest friends, close to our hearts were dealing with disease, divorce, sickness, cancer and death.
We realized in living the real life, that monumental joy will undoubtedly accompany unimaginable pain. We decided to do it before any more time passes. Looking at the calendar, and the year, we decided on this August because it will mark our 19 years of marriage, but our 25 years of love.
A lot happens to one couple in 25 years. And we can't wait to celebrate it ALL.
What would an I Do Renew be without wedding dress shopping!? I tried on several at a salon in TriBeCa and a few in midtown and ended up with something so perfect for this occasion, perfect for this party we're planning and as my friends say, "So LINDSAY." I can't show you the one I landed on, so keep checking back for a post later in August!
