The journaling reads: This story begins at midnight New years eve 2001/2002 when my hubby went down on his knees and asked me to marry him. The proposal came as a big surprise. I said yes. Everybody that knows me know that I’m REALLY organized and always plan ahead. Since I was a little girl my dream wedding was a spring weeding. So the big day was set on the 24th of May 2003. We started to make plans for the big day. Then it happened in November 2002. I did not start my period. This could not be…we were using birthcontrols. We had not planned for a baby until after one or two years. We were going to get married in few months. This could not be. A Pregnacy test confirmed it I was pregnant. What now ? Should we postpone the wedding ? I did not want to get married 6 month pregnant. Somebody (deffenitly not me) suggested we should get married en Febuary. Febuary ???!!!! What’s wrong with people I thought. I “hate” Febuary. The most boring month of the year. Dark. Cold. Not my favourite month. We got married the 22th of Febuary 2203. My spring weeding turned out to be a winter wedding…not as I had planned. It was amazing day. Then Sunneva was born in August 2003 the best unexpected gift I have ever gotten.
The clear flower embellies symbolizes that on our Wedding day we were already three. I was 16 week into my pregnancy.
