Etsy is a wonderful place. I put a deposit down on these invitations which were 100% love at first sight and after finding this, I contacted the artist to see about the possibility of a squirrel groom and she's making one!
Unfortunately, it's also the first thing about this wedding that has made me cry. I know it's strange and people aren't going to get it but it means something to us - Matt really is my squirrel groom. It's the one thing I've found so far that really represents our relationship.
I'm not going to go in to what it was that upset me but it made me realize that I need to toughen up a bit. Okay, I need to toughen up a lot. My need to make other people happy is going to make some things about this incredibly difficult. And the fact that my parents are paying is going to make it even a little harder. I need a mantra tattooed on my palm, "It's about what makes us happy."
Thankfully, my squirrel groom is there for me 24/7 and didn't mind making me feel better last night at 2:30 in the morning, his time. So far we're agreeing on plans and that's all that matters.
If it's sunny at all this weekend and good for taking pictures, I have lots of yarny goodness to share and a few other, non-wedding related things to blog about. I will not slip into the black hole of all wedding/all the time, I swear. Just some of the time....
