My soul sparkles and my heart shines. I am Mrs. Womack forever more. On Valentine’s day 2016 I gave myself completely in vow to my best friend and chose to spend my life with him.
Zane and I have had so much fun with each other. That has also been foreshadowed by a large amount of responsibility and difficult times together. We have done a lot to make our life together and our place in this world. We have worked, as a team, to be where we are. Every single day we make sure to show each other in every way we can how much we love each other. Our wedding day was no different, and every single person who was at our wedding was utterly touched by the ceremony and the amount of love we have for each other. Even the pastor who performed the ceremony was moved by the love flowing out of the two of us.
Did we make Eve Online video game jokes in our vows? Your damn right. Did we dance poorly with each other after the ceremony even though no one else danced? Absolutely. It was a blast. Everything was beautiful. It was perfect. I walked down the aisle to our song “Bright” by Echosmith. Our nieces and Nephew could not have been cuter. Alexandr and our Nephew made adorable ring bearers, and my brother in law and sister were wonderful. My friend Matthew walked me down the aisle to my waiting future husband who couldn’t have looked more shocked and in love. Then we were married! After our dancing foolishness and some pictures at the park we had dinner at a place called The American Bowman Restaurant. It sits atop an amazing microbrewery called O’Malley’s in Kansas that makes some amazing beer. After some amazing conversation with family and some close friends one of whom, Richelle, I had not seen in far to long and was so happy to get a chance to see even if we didn’t get to chat much given the excitement, we we relieved of parenting duty for a few days for our “honeymoon”.
We spent the next few days having fun visiting with Matt and doing things like playing arcade games at Dave and Buster’s, and in general just being big goofs. It was so much fun. Soon I’ll make a post about how I did the budgeting for the wedding. We were able to clock in at a VERY small budget for the wedding How small? Check out my next installment to find out, but I bet you’d be surprised to find it’s well under 1,000 dollars.
Moving forward. Life these days is great. Zane is going to be trying out a driving job here in town, this would allow for him to be home at night, and have two days off a week. This is absolutely amazing because a lot has happened in the last few weeks. I found out that I also have Kidney disease on top of everything else (IgA Nephropathy/Berger’s Disease) and our son was just placed as special needs as he’s showing a 25-50% delay and might have sensory processing disorder. Not to mention that I badly wanted him home. I love him so much and having him home only four days out of the month was so tough. He’s so much of my world and I’m such a strong person but he’s such a big part of my life, having him hundreds of miles away….well it sucks. I hate it. So I hope this switch sticks and works out because I want him here. I prefer him here and I have no doubt he’d rather be here too.
