Something very nice happened in my life that I'd like to share. Almost a month ago Vani and I went to Colorado and got married. We were considering going to Hawaii, but it's not quite the right time of the year to go there -- or so it seemed from the weather reports.
We decided going skiing and snowboarding would be more fun, so we looked for cold weather instead. As Vani said, at least then people celebrate when the it's snowing. We stayed for a long week week at "the peaks". Half the week we even made it out in the snow, it was a blast. The other half of the week we were just wandering around town. Actually, we were mostly just geeking on our laptops the whole time. Yes yes, you might shake your head, but the hotel was a very comfortable place to geek. :-) (Another reason for not going to Hawaii could have been that we couldn't find a nice hotel in a place we wanted to go that had broadband internet, but we'll never admit to that).
For our tiny ceremony it was just the two of us. It was beautiful. In the morning the clouds were hovering over the mountain, but as we were getting ready they disappeared and the sun came out shining on us again. Which was fortunate, because it was really cold outside otherwise! (Vani said walking in the snow was cold even with the sun). It was Very Pretty. Tall white mountains. Mmmmnnnn.... We were pretty too, of course.
We have only been together for a few months. I know how understanding I would be if someone I knew did something this crazy, but I promise you, dear reader, that from here it doesn't seem quite as insane as it might be. Okay, maybe it does too. We are happy and the slightly nutty way seems to be working best for us. :-)
The whole thing is still not always entirely believable, but I very much like it when I do believe it. To make up for not inviting anyone to our ceremony (I know, how egocentric of us!), we're planning to do a reception in the summer and after that again in denmark and malaysia.
