. . . your daughter and her boyfriend get married secretly (today) and then announce it to the world on Facebook. Nope, didn't even call mom first. I had to read it on Facebook. They knew I would and they thought it would be fun and funny.
And it was sort of funny. I'm reading the News Feed and see familiar Zach and it says Zach and Jenn are married, and I'm thinking, "I know that." And then I realize I DON'T know that, and read it again. Ho-ly smokes! And then I'm on the phone to my daughter.
It's not how I imagined my daughter's wedding at all. But it's not about me after all, now is it? And as she points out, it's exactly how her father and I were married -- secretly, telling no-one until afterward. But we didn't announce it on Facebook. Although, as Jenn pointed out, "You would have, mom, if you had had Facebook."
And so maybe I would have.
I'm thrilled and happy for them both. Zach is a great guy and I have felt for a long time as if he were part of the family. This just makes it legal and official. I couldn't be happier about it.
Still . . . just getting used to the news.
