I'm a creature of habit. If I put something away in the same place everyday, I will never ever lose it. I always know exactly where it is because it's exactly where it ought to be. I'm also a neat and tidy person, so, odds are, everything in my house is exactly where it goes. I own one wide-toothed comb, and it's in the same place where I need it to be every day. My glasses, when they aren't on my face, are in their case. Each kitchen utensil goes back in its spot after I use it.
Ninety-nine percent of this time, this system works flawlessly. On other occasions, I happen to put something in the wrong place for once...and I have no way of finding it because since it's not in its spot, I have absolutely no idea where it is. One time my grandma and I spent more than an hour looking for a textbook that wasn't in its spot. We ended up finding it under the bed. Who would have thought?
Problems also occur when the item isn't something habitually used, just put away once and not used frequently at all. Remembering where exactly those extra passport/visa photos we had taken last year got stored...yeah...probably not going to happen...
Anyways, all this is to say, I recently got a reminder that I hadn't logged into an old Dropbox account for over a year upon logging in, I was curious to see what was actually stored there, and found a lot of wedding-related files, from planning and budget files to wedding photos, and, indeed, the classic 'photos of us growing up and meeting and deciding to get married' video. I didn't even know this video still existed anywhere, so it was a very happy surprise to find it in that long-forgotten Dropbox account. It was a very educational visit to Dropbox, because for a long time I haven't been able to remember what song I walked down the aisle to, and I was also informed by a file containing our wedding program that it was "God is With Us" by Casting Crowns. Amazing the things you can learn on the computer.
Also, I have never had much access to any photos of Angel growing up to show you on the blog, so please enjoy some of these never-before-seen photos of us as wee things and in college together. I love how you can already tell he was a total mischief maker from his earliest photos.
p.s. I also totally forgot about the "So, when can we get married? Next Wednesday?" which is what Angel asked when we got engaged in July and started planning our wedding. The wedding, however, was unfortunately pushed out to December due to logistics. Silly logistics.
p.p.s. Do you forget about the existence and location of things the way I do? Also, I haven't been to many weddings in recent years...is the whole 'through the years' slideshow hopelessly out of date at this point?
