And I Said Yes
We had decided to take a break from unpacking our new apartment. It just seemed like we were barely making a dent in eliminating the sea of boxes stacked up everywhere. So, instead of getting ourselves even more overwhelmed than we already were, we decided to make it a family movie night! Thank goodness the public libraries here have a great movie collection because the cable people hadn’t yet come out to hook everything up.
Anyways, we set Moo up to watch The Muppets in the living room (JJ was asleep) and then we watched Red Tails and Horrible Bosses in the second bedroom. It’s right off the living room and I could watch Moo to make sure she stayed on the couch. The Mr and I don’t get tons of time to be alone. So, despite the mess around us, it was nice to snuggle and have a little romantic moment.
Anyways, we’re watching Red Tails. By the way if you haven’t seen this movie definitely see it. I give it two thumbs up. It’s about the Tuskegee airmen (African American pilots) who were finally given a chance to really serve our country in Italy during World War II. Add this to your list of movies to watch during Black History Month.
We’re watching the part of the movie where one of the characters, Lighting, proposes to his Italian girlfriend, Sofia. It was a really sweet moment because of course he’s kind of portrayed as being a ladies man. So, I wasn’t expecting him to really settle down, but hey love can change you. I won’t spoil the movie and tell you what she said, but here’s the conversation the Mr and I had afterwards.
The Mr: “Would you marry me?”
Me: “Umm…. I’m pretty sure I already did that.”
The Mr: “I know that. But would you marry me again?”
Me: “You don’t want to get married again.” (Our first attempt at planning a wedding was a disaster. He hated everything about the whole process except for the food tasting part.)
The Mr: “No, I’m serious. I want us to renew our vows.”
I still thought he was kind of joking but he kept talking about and finally I realized he was serious.
The Mr: “So, do you want to marry me? Again?”
This mama is one happy bride-to-be again! I’ve always dreamed of having an actual wedding and to finally have him want that to is exciting beyond belief. We definitely won’t be doing the wedding this year because our wedding anniversary is less than a month away, but I’m looking forward to possibly walking down the aisle the next year to exchange vows with the love of my life again. This time around, I’m not trying to plan something huge. I want it small, intimate but grand and elegant. We’ve overcome a lot and I think renewing our vows is the perfect way to celebrate our victory.
I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on everything as we go along!
Would you marry your spouse all over again?
