Have you ever had your mind so set on something that you could picture every single detail? Who would be there. What you would be wearing. What you would eat. What the weather would be like. Maybe this is your wedding day. A graduation. First day of a dream job. For me, this was the Boston Marathon.
My husband comes from a large extended family that has a tradition that I love. When someone in the family is getting married, a few months prior to the big day, they hold a family wedding shower. At the famous wedding shower, not only are most embarrassing moments shared, but tidbits of wedding advice are given to the engaged couple. While the couple opens a gift, the couple that gave the gift imparts their greatest wedded-life wisdom. I learned quite a bit that day from couples of all stages. There were couples that have been married for 50+ years and some that were married for just a few months – all jumped at the opportunity to share something that they love about their relationship.
