Throwback Thursday

A friend sent me these photos a while back.  They're from a wedding that was four years ago today.  In 2009, Colorado had the same idea of spring that it does in 2013, and on April 18 dumped a snow storm on Denver that measured in feet. A quick plan B had to be come up with for a venue, as the Plan A venue (for an outdoor mountain wedding) couldn't even be driven to in the storm.  It became a beautiful story of community and creativity and letting go, and Sawan and I ended up helping more than just my hairstyling committments.  Afterward, we got to party a bit.  Here are the photos:

I love that they show us as so ordinary.  An ordinary couple with extraordinary love.

  1. Hi,

    I happened to come upon your blog tonight, and it has given me some comfort that I have not felt for a while. I am currently 25years old, soon to be 26, and my husband will have been gone now two years in August. He was 29 years old when he died. Like you, my husband's death did not come with a warning sign. I miss him every single day, so much that sometimes I can literally feel my heart aching inside. Some days are better than others, of course, but I have found many days to be difficult lately. I admire your strength and willingness to get back out there, in a sense. I still feel compelled to stay home and just think and read. I often feel quite lonely, and it is hard for me to imagine doing anything without my husband's company. I just wanted to send a quick note and say thank you for sharing your thoughts. -Brittany
