While having our slices of pumpkin pie today at High5, Kristina and I got to talking about our futures. I can’t even remember a a time when that subject didn’t come up in conversation because it happens on a daily basis these days. When we graduate this spring, her and I will both be on this pathway of paying off loans and all of that, but then we realized that that’s not the most expensive thing we’ll ever have to pay for in our lives. After paying off school loans, we will have a wedding, purchase a house and hopefully have our own families, which I can’t even begin to imagine how much that is all going to add up to nor do I really want to imagine that at this point. After the whole Kim Kardash wedding scandal, I feel like the whole world sort of got a little lost on what weddings were supposed to be about. It’s not about how much it costs and how lavish everything is and how many people you have in attendance, it’s about the journey.
I was touched by a story I read on Seattle Met Blogs today about a couple that has been married eight times in eight different cities including ours! Lisa and Alex love traveling and each other so much that they wanted to host wedding ceremonies all over the globe. At each location, they are enlisting the help and support of vendors to provide standard wedding norms such as a wedding dress, a photographer, food, etc. and are documenting their entire adventure on a blog. It was so sweet to hear that the two of them were able to use Pike Place Market as the setting of one of their ceremonies!
