This might come as a surprise to you, but as Michael and I were picking the themes for this challenge we weren’t picking themes that we already had ideas for, or that we thought would be easy. On the contrary, we picked themes that we thought might be challenging, throwing in a few easier ones to keep everybody sane. The past ten days or so, I’ve really been struggling to think of ideas, even had a few desperate moments when I thought about posting photos of posters or something. The same thing happened with “The Future.”
I thought about everything from tinfoil hats to flying cars to UFOs to remote controlled toasters, but nothing seemed to be good enough. And then it hit me. It was so obvious, right there in front of me the entire time.
I am getting married this summer. My future is with M. This is his ring, the symbol of our future together, of our love. Planning this wedding is a lot of work, more than I ever thought it would be, and we’re only really getting started. Among all the stress and the invitations and the music and flowers and food, among all the decisions I have to make, the “I do” part of the wedding seems like a small thing.
Because that’s the only part I’m 100% certain about.
