My first week as a married woman

Thank you all, dear ones, for all your kind wishes, congratulations and prayers on our behalf! I spent nearly an hour yesterday reading through all the comments you left for us, and they are so heart-warming.

There aren't any pictures yet (probably next week), but for now I just wanted to give you a little update.

My first week as a married woman has been absolutely wonderful so far. I must say I don't even remember much from our wedding ceremony; it was all so deeply moving and exciting that it's all coming back to me in bits and pieces. I remember most clearly the moment my husband put a ring on my finger, and then the moment when he broke the glass (on third attempt ;)).

We didn't even visit our home so far, even though we didn't go on honeymoon in the usual meaning of the word. We simply have been spending time together and with our families. Today will actually be our first night in our new (rented) home, and it will some months before we settle into our permanent dwelling.

Again, thank you so much, dear ones, for your support along this challenging and beautiful journey of ours in the past months. Hope to talk to you soon, and a wonderful day to you all!

PS: As you might have noticed, I removed the picture from my sidebar, and intend to replace it as soon as I can with a picture of me wearing a head covering.

Oh Anna,

I am so happy that everything went well for you in your wedding and that you are begining to remember parts! - The excitement must have been enormous. I pray that you will have a wonderful time now as you enter your new residence, setting up a real home of your own that you will share with your beloved husband.

Oh what a joy it is to be married and sharing lifes blessings with someone else, may you have many blessings, especially of the tiny, cuddly variety!

May God bless you both.

Anna...sorry...Mrs T., ;)

I take it you've been doing the Sheva Brachot for the past week?

I think it would be a great learning experience for your readers to explain the Jewish Wedding Ceremony and the traditions before and after...of course when you are able to take the time to do so.

Not many are familiar with our traditions, aside from the Chuppah and the Glass.

Take care,
Tamara

Mrs. T, :)
It's wonderful to hear that all is well... I know what you mean about memories "coming back in bits and pieces" - I had a similar experience after my own wedding...

I'm looking forward to pictures when you get them, and I can't wait to see you in your headcovering... :)

Peace be with you,
~Jenny

As Tamara said, not so many are familiar with the traditions you observe, so it would be wonderful to have a chance to learn more via our visits to Domestic Felicity.
Congratulations again,
Mrs. G.

Jenny said...
