profound underwear thoughts.
LJ got a nice frilly white pair of underwear from Sam that say "Bride" on them. they are so adorable. LJ herself got me a hot pink and rhinestone pair of Bride Underwear for my weddin. i wore them to the rehearsal and they were just so cute and fun.
since LJ got a new pair, it made me think of my own pair. after i got home from Arizona, i dug around in my underwear drawer until i found them. when i pulled them out, i smiled. but then i noticed: some rhinestones were missing and there was a tear in one of the ruffles. i still love them and will probably keep them forever, but i was a little sad that they were worn out. LJ has her shiny new, never-been-worn pair with the tags still attached, and mine are old. 8 months old. 8 months of marriage old. so instead of being sad, i smiled a secret, knowing smile. because mine are SUPPOSED to be old. they are special. the missing rhinestones and torn ruffle represent the fact that me and JJ have endured the first year of our marriage with ups and downs and wonderful memories.
we have almost passed The Newlywed Stage that LJ is about enter with her finace (AND her fancy brand-new Bride Underwear) and i couldn't be happier for them. i feel so blessed to have my own tired pair of Bride Underwear and my delightful husband.
