The Honeymoon is Over. Until We Go on Our Honeymoon.

L and I had our first big fight related to the wedding two nights ago. Considering we're about five months into our engagement that's not bad. Things are fine now, although there are still a few ruffled shirt collars that need to be ironed out before I go public with the details. The experience did, however, allow me to come up with the following rule, which I call PlanetGordon's Rule of Inverse Proportions as Related to Weddings and Planning:

The smaller the detail, the larger the potential conflict.

Stay tuned...

It's true! But it's also true in life, not just wedding-related stuff. The important thing is to know how to resolve those inevitable disagreements/fights/spats/whatever you call 'em.

Right on brother!! Don't want to scare you or anything, but just wait until you get closer to the big day...this hasn't been the last of the 'discussions'!

No worries. We both recognized how silly our fight was and laughed that it was started by something so insignificant. If there is one we are good at is getting through fights and finding the real discussion that we should have been having.

Our first big shocking, "Who ARE you?!!" disagreement? Cut glass goblet patterns. Talk about inverse proportions. I mean honestly.. how often will you really use these things?

Yep. The littlest things will for some stupid reason get me all sad. But honestly, I AM getting better! Valentine's Day here I come!
