Let it be a wonder

I carry a little yellow Semikolon notebook with me in my purse and jot down notes as I see fit. (I try to limit it to thoughts and quotes from what I read, but sometimes notes from work meetings sneak in when I've forgotten the right notebook.)

I filled up a bunch of pages this spring, when I read Tiny Beautiful Things, a compilation from Cheryl Strayed's exquisitely written "Dear Sugar" advice column. This passage, excerpted from the end of this column, was one of several that landed in my notebook:
Let your wedding be a wonder. Let it be one hell of a good time. Let it be what you can't imagine and wouldn't orchestrate even if you could. You're getting married! There's a day ahead that's a shimmering slice of your mysterious destiny. All you've got to do is show up.
And here we go!
