with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
There’s been a lot of talk in the press about how Angelina Jolie cried when Brad proposed to her. I’m not sure that that little tidbit is newsworthy, but it did get me thinking.
Did I cry when we got engaged? No. Well, I don’t think so. I tend to be a crier, whether happy or sad, but I don’t remember crying that night. I remember saying yes, and hugging, and kissing, and smiling so hard that I should have been worried about my face cracking.
On our wedding day, however, there was almost a big waterworks show. I was walking down the aisle and my (now) husband was standing there, turning a little pink in the face, blinking back tears. He’s not a crier. As I got closer to him, I mouthed “Don’t you dare cry” with a small smile, because I knew that if he lost it I’d be doing the Ugly Cry.
There was some mistiness, a few sniffles, but no emotional breakdowns.
How about you? Did you cry when you got engaged or when you got married?
