My mom just sent me the following email:
"Can you send me a picture of your wedding dress? I can't tell you why . . . a surprise. You don't have to put it on, just a pic of front and back."
And I have no idea why, and it's driving me nuts! Any idea on what she could be doing?
Lately, my family has been a little more engaged in the wedding process which is nice. For the longest time, they didn't really seem to care about it, which I think is because they didn't, which is totally understandable. If you'll remember my parents' wedding, you'll see that our wedding, despite our relatively relaxed attitude, is much bigger and more formal than theirs was. They just don't really care about this kind of stuff. And the only other family member I have who could care is my 19-year-old brother. 'Nuff said. His girlfriend is more engaged than he is.
I don't really mind. Not caring means I don't have to deal with their opinions being forced on me like most people do. That has been such a blessing. And it's not like they don't care at all, they just don't care about any of the details or being involved in the planning. Still, it's nice when they show a little excitement.
