Every morning for the week leading up to my wedding I woke up extremely early. I'm talking 3 or 4AM sometimes. I would wake up, and my mind would started going, and it was then impossible to fall back asleep. It was no different for me when we got to the amazing beach house where we all stayed (and where all of the CA wedding events were held). The day of the wedding I woke up at 4:30AM, lied in bed for a half hour trying to will myself back to sleep, then decided to text my mom (who was in her room 2 floors below). Of course she was up. We organized a rendezvous on the patio with our favorite tea, to watch the waves, sit in the ever fleeting peace (until the other 30 guests began to stir) and talk about how excited we were. The very same thing happened the morning after the wedding. I got to start my wedding day, and my married life, waking up with the person who makes me feel the safest and coziest, drinking our favorite drink, in one of the most beautiful settings I could imagine.

It was one of the most peaceful times in my life. Hopefully that doesn't make it seem like my husband doesn't make me feel safe or cozy; it's just that there's nothing like being with your mom to make you feel warm and cozy. Scratch that; there's nothing like being with MY mom to make ME feel warm and cozy. This is literally one of my favorite memories from my wedding.
