Our Story from Start to Beyond the Grave: (77)

Back in Redondo Beach

Goodbyes are still hard, but I’m trying to look at our future, that being soon I will be living with my Jace*—- in Texas. We have talked of marriage and so once I am settled in the Lone Star State, we can plan a simple get together celebrating our marriage. What I envision for the big day would be renting an RV. We would drive it to Nasworthy Lake Park. We would have our ceremony there. Jace*—- would be dressed in his tight blue jeans with a chambray shirt to bring out the blue in his gorgeous hazel eyes. We would have a small gathering of people. Jace*—- would be standing next to whomever would be officiating, waiting for me to step out of the RV. I would come out barefooted, in blue jeans with a simple white lace cotton shirt. My bouquet of course, The Blue Bells of Texas, with white roses and baby’s breathe. After our service we would have a barbeque in the park. We would play music on a boombox, our first dance being “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole. Because to me that is what my Jace*— is, unforgettable. Our honeymoon would start by spending our first night in the RV staying in the park. Simple I know, a little country, right, but just right for this girl. Just a dream.

There is so much going on at the home front. We are in the final stages of planning Angie’s wedding, which will take place in November in the chapel at Knotts Berry Farm. Meanwhile I am packing for the move. I’ve got boxes floor to ceiling next to the front room wall. I’ve also placed some under the kitchen table. And yet so much more to pack. Angie’s has been packing her things too.  Of course, there is my work at the daycare, 5 days a week, yet money is going fast. I’ve got to figure out how I am going to have enough money to move. It’s looking like Angie and her husband will be moving to Texas with me. They will be settling into their own place. Angie already has a job lined up and will be transferring to a Target in San Angelo where she will work in the office.

Jace*—- and I talk nightly about the move, our up coming wedding and how Angie will be moving out there too. We have come to the conclusion that we will fly Jace*—- out and he will drive the moving truck back to Texas, while we will be caravanning behind him in our cars. Jace*—- had been a trucker before so it seemed like the most practical way to do it. He has made a time line for us to come out in February. I was like ok, I hope to be able to get everything together money, means, and finding work out there on that time line.

Today we are at Dave’s Bridal shop where Angie is picking out her Wedding Dress. It’s beautiful, white satin with red accent. She of course looks beautiful in it. She will get fitted for it today. I received a call from Jace*—- while we were there. I said, “We are trying on Wedding dresses today and making a choice.” Because I said “We” he thought I was trying on wedding dresses too. He said, “I can imagine how beautiful you will look at our wedding in your dress. I will be writing my wedding vows that day. I will tell you all the reason why I love you and how you saved me from myself and others the day I met you. All the things I haven’t told you as of yet.” I would never get to hear those words. Please never in your experiences hold back your feelings of love for someone, because tomorrow is never promised.

Next time: Angie’s Wedding

Nat King Cole Lyrics

Play “Unforgettable”

on Amazon Music Unlimited (ad)


Unforgettable, that’s what you are

Unforgettable though near or far

Like a song of love that clings to me

How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way

And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay

That’s why, darling, it’s incredible

That someone so unforgettable

Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Unforgettable in every way

And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay

That’s why, darling, it’s incredible

That someone so unforgettable Thinks that I am unforgettable too
