Mrs. Bustopher Jones

On Sunday, August 6, I got married. For about ten nights before that, I couldn’t sleep. I would fall asleep at night but then either wake up at 3 and fall back to sleep around 6 (sometimes with the aid of melatonin) or I would wake up at 5 or 6 and not be able to fall back to sleep. I would lie there in bed worrying about the seat arrangements, the hotel arrangements, my dress, the place cards, you name it. I wanted to have it all done at least a week beforehand, but then the weekend before the wedding I had a bachelorette party, then Martin had his bachelor party, then we drove to Orange County for my friend Jenny’s wedding and drove back the following afternoon after boogie boarding in warm water and eating burgers and fries. It was Tuesday night before I’d even unpacked-five days before the wedding. Then my family started arriving the following day-on Wednesday. Wednesday night Martin and I had dinner in Chinatown with 11 members of my family all seated around one big table. Thursday I let them do their own thing so I could get the place cards and envelopes finished. Friday night we spontaneously invited most of my family (19 of them) over for pizza and drinks. Saturday afternoon Martin’s mom hosted a wonderful dinner for all of the out-of-towners (48 or so people) at her house. Sunday was the wedding. It’s going to take a series of blog posts for me to write about it all. I’ll start with the bachelorette. (The above picture is courtesy of Jenny Talavera.
