24/30: Something pink. We finally got a copy of our official wedding photos from Exquisite Photography. Kuya Bim, our dear friend and surrogate brother who agreed to take our photos, did a really good job with them. There were hundreds of beautiful photos but the MacBooks were stolen even before we found time to choose which ones to upload on Facebook. I guess uploading them is not going to happen anytime soon.
EP uploaded some on their official FB account though. And this photograph is one of my favorites, yay! I looked really happy in this, no? (: That’s because I was. I am.
This reminds me that no matter how stressful, sometimes heartbreaking, the days were leading to our wedding day, I still woke up on the morning of August 13, 2011 with so much peace and hope in my heart. I’ve waited for that day for so long, and when God finally made it happen, there was nothing or no one who could take away the joy in my heart.
We’ve been heavily warned about getting married. Some people even questioned our decisions and challenged us to reconsider, while others gave us their full blessing and support. We were told that marriage isn’t all love and bliss, that it involves a lot of work, and that it can be a painful thing if not done right. You might think that I’m not the right person to validate these claims as I have only been married for 3 months, but if you’d take my word for it, I say, yes, married life can be really challenging, but the fact that it’s a God-given gift does not change. I say, it’s truly worth it.
I’ll be posting 2-3 quick posts per day starting today, my way of sprinting to finish line. This 30-day Challenge has dragged on too long already. It’s funny that I still refer to it as a “challenge” when the real challenge in blog activities like this is the part where you’re supposed to blog in 30 consecutive days, “consecutive” being the operative word. Fail. :P
On the upside, I have every intention of reaching finish line, in spite of the delays. That being said, the last 6 photographs are all coming out this week. (:
