Adrian Kosky and I decided (spontaneously) to get married on Monday, March 17, 2014…..St. Patrick’s Day will be an anniversary party day for us every year from now on!!
We had fun without a plan.
On Monday afternoon, we went to buy a wedding ring from the local jewellery store here in downtown Clarksdale, Mississippi, but the store was closed and not opening again until the 19th of March. So, I have a Wal-Mart wedding ring! It was the only one in Wal-Mart’s jewellery department that fit my finger……AND it was very reasonably priced!! 🙂
Our wedding was officiated by our wonderful friend, Randall Andrews, at the Atzimba Mexican Restaurant on State Street in Clarksdale……yes, right at the table, pushing the chips & dip and Diet Coke aside, Adrian and I exchanged our vows and took a selfie for our first wedding photo. The event was lovely, it was fun, it was definitely relaxed, and it was sincere.
We are happily calling each other “husband and wife.” We’re a little giggly about it, and we are enjoying all the love and good wishes that we are receiving as messages from friends & family via facebook. 🙂
Here are a few photos that tell the story of our wedding and the first day of our marriage.
It’s Wednesday now, and we are back at work on The Holy Moly project….scrubbing and sealing floors. It’s our unusual life, as usual, today.
Adrian and I are always thankful for life together. We are both now thankful that we will be “married” wherever we might be and will no longer need to explain the “de facto” relationship we had in Australia.
