Permed to Natural is Getting Married

Monday, February 27th, 2012

I am part of a growing trend in the United States. I will be a first time bride over 40. I am so proud of that. However, over the years, I was often told that I wasn’t going to get married because studies revealed that women in their 40s had a better chance at getting struck by lightning then get married for the first time. Whatever. I never paid attention to that stuff or people who said it.

One reason (actually there are many) I admire being a first time bride over 40 is that I have explored and experienced a lot. I am able to proudly check off many items on my bucket list, and because of that, I believe I am a better person and will therefore be a better wife.

But before someone says something, I am not going to talk about being married because I am not, and that would be just silly. I am going to say that since first time “older” brides are increasing, I feel really good that I am a member of this glorious “Sisterhood.”

Hey, by the way, I am looking for a broom to jump on my big day. Can someone tell me where I might be able to buy one designed for weddings?

    Hey :o ) I just had to pop in and congratulate you. Although I don’t always get a chance to comment I really appreciate your posts as well :o ) Before I get back to work – I’m going to add my suggestion of checking out Etsy.com (I did a search for ‘wedding broom’) they have lots for about $35 and up :o )

    Here is one of the pages from the listing…

    Congratulations to you! When my husband and I got married we did jump the broom. By the way
    I bought the broom and decortated it with some silk ribbon and silk flowers.:)

    That was cutest picture and my fondest memory
    of our wedding day.
