Ten on Tuesdays

Hello Knitters,

Today's Ten on Tuesdays theme is "Things I learned from the wedding." 
  1. The day goes by really fast, so make sure you take the time to slow down and ENJOY it!
  2. You'll see, be hugged, and kissed by a lot of people.
  3. You also will forget those people's names - and likely at the most inopportune times.
  4. Unexpected things will happen - for example: you may forget your purse in the shopping cart at the grocery store an hour away, then end up having car trouble on your drive home and have to flag down someone because you now realize your purse is missing and your cell just happens to be in it. However, the good news is that there are still good people out there in the world who will stop to help you out.  - Just ask my Mom, she knows all about this :-)
  5. Take lots of pictures, it's the only way you'll be able to remember it all.
  6. Make sure to pack snacks.  After the ceremony is over and your nerves have calmed down, you tend to become excessively hungry.
  7. Have some flip flops or comfy shoes with you because your feet will get sore and need a break once in a while - or you may have to climb a mountain, and they really do come in handy then!!
  8. If you focus on the bride and groom and not on the audience, then it makes it less nerve-racking during the ceremony.
  9. It's very good to have one or more super-organized people helping out on the day of to make sure everything runs smoothly.
  10. It really is worth all the sweat, tears, disagreements, stress, late nights, and early mornings.  There's nothing better than seeing my sister so happy she glows!!
Happy Knitting!!
