Then came Wednesday, and with it, the most incredible gift basket I have ever laid eyes on. It weighed about as much as a small horse. Not the really small, mini-horses, those are too small, hardly weigh anything at all. I’m thinking more in the lines of a Shetland pony. That’s how much it weighed. It was full to the brim of wine and fruit, and in the middle, a card. A card addressed to me. Nicky, the gift basket goddess of Even More Canada, had sent me awkward bananas and was wishing me all the best for my wedding day. She also, to my great relief, assured me that she would be waiting, that she would still have me if I changed my mind.
Have you ever seen such awkward bananas? Me either.
It’s so beautiful, I could cry.
That said, I did get married. I am now Mrs. M. It was a perfect day, from start to finish. Words can’t describe how happy I was. I don’t yet have the photos that the photographer took, but some kind soul had taken a few photos with my camera, so I at least have something to show you. But for now, this is all you’re getting. Tomorrow M and I are getting on a plane and spending a week in beautiful Turkey. See you later, people!
