365 days ago, I was really nervous

365 days ago, I was really nervous. I was nervous the whole morning. At 11 am, two swing doors opened, music started to play and I started to cry. I cried through Yumeji’s Theme and I cried through You’re The One. Then I said yes. After saying yes, the anxiety was gone and we started to enjoy our wedding.

I usually publish posts on Tuesdays and Saturdays, but since this is a special occasion, I’ve decided to publish the post two days early – on Y’s and my first wedding anniversary. The next post will be published this upcoming Saturday. Stay tuned!

      Thanks! I really liked the Chinese dress, unfortunately there aren’t many other occasions where you could wear a dress like that.

  2. Omg! You looked so beautiful, love love love the Chinese dress you were wearing! Wish you guys stay happy for many many many many years! And.. Your husband is so tall! haha

    Your husband is a giant, and he has the look of a 东北爷们儿. Congratulations, and beautiful pictures.

      Thanks! My husband is tall, but you’ll find plenty of people in Shenzhen who are even taller than he is.
