So last night was our first marriage class!! It went really well and I think there were 6 couples there plus the teaching couple. It went well. Jerry and I managed to get all of our homework done! Yippee! This week we ran short on time due to introductions and just settling in, but next week there will probably be more discussion time. I am looking forward to it!
So far, I have mixed feelings about the book. I think it is meant to give a realistic perspective of marriage and let people know that it isn’t always sunshine and flowers. But it seems a bit TOO negative for me. I will admit that I am forever the optimist, but I would like to think that I am a realistic optimist. The stories presented in the book have been great. However, the author is a bit, “marriage stinks, but it will only make you stronger…(paraphrase)”.
It is getting better the deeper we go (on chapter 5 now) so I won’t give up just yet!!
We have a bunch of loose ends to tie up with various projects this weekend. I am hoping to do a few more centerpieces, finish and send out the rehearsal dinner invites, finish the ribbon wands, and maybe even start on the favors! I will post pictures as I go!
Tomorrow I am having a fun un-bridesmaids luncheon with a few of my girls! I really wanted our little crew to have a special day so we are having a ladies lunch! Well, a lunch at least 🙂 Pics to follow!! Have a great weekend!
