Day 24....... Weddings

I am not a really girly girl. Probably because i am the only girl in the family, with two brothers. My mum and I were the only women in the house so i was more of a tom boy. It wasn't till my second year of University that i started wearing heels. I heard that one of the requirements of being a girly girl is to have a wedding book. One of my friends kept one since high school, she planned how everything was going to be, cut pictures of wedding dresses etc. She's married now and she stuck to the contents.

Recently i have been thinking about weddings, I rarely go to weddings. If we are not very close, i see no point. In the last 3 years, i have been invited to so many but only gone for 4.(i was on the bridal train in 2). Watching Prince William and Kate's wedding a few months ago made me think of what type of wedding i wanted. I have no say in the Traditional wedding, i won't even bother because i know my mother so she can control that. For the white wedding, i don't have a type of dress, or colors or those girly details, all i know is i want it to be on a weekday, weeks after the traditional one and i want a maximum of 150 guests. Either local or destination wedding. My husband and I must know the guests. I am a fan of quiet ceremonies. All these may change depending on the type of man i marry but i pray he agrees with me.

However, one thing i hope will happen is walking down the aisle in Church to meet my husband-to-be to R.Kelly's When a Woman loves. I have never felt so strongly about any song like i do to this song. It depicts the way i want to love him and i pray that when that time comes, i end up with a man that i love this way and who knows the extent of love i have for him.

When a woman loves
She, she loves for real
When a woman loves
She, she, she loves for real
She took me back
After I broke her heart
About a thousand times
She gave her life to me
With no regrets, she followed me
And she, and she, the girl she raised me
And I'm forever indebted, I'm forever indebted, I'm forever indebted to her cause
When a woman loves
She, she, she loves for real
When a woman loves
She, she, she loves for real
She filled my soul
With the very touch of her hand
She really did
And she’s got more, more faith in me than a beach got sand
And I like to tell ha, I like to tell ha, that I’m forever indebted,, that I’m forever indebted, forever indebted
Cause when a woman loves
She, she, she loves for real
Yea, yea
See a woman loves
It would never die young
Even when I’m dead and gone, I’m gonna love her from the sky

Cause she’s given me something that no other woman has given me
When I think about you girl it makes me think
When, when, when, when a woman
When a
She loves for real (oh)
When a woman loves, loves, loves
I’m tellin you when she loves
She, she loves for real
Yea, yea, yea
