Getting Married

I haven't written much here since ever I left Lebanon in July 2007 and went to Jordan to get ready for my wedding that took place there. So, let me , in brief tell you how was it and what happened during that period.
I wasn't very moved on the day I left. My mind was occupied with so many things which left no space for thinking about leaving the country where I lived for 26 years and feel sad about it. Even during my stay in Jordan, I didn't think of Lebanon, I neither missed nor felt nostalgic about anything. I was surrounded by family and relatives...busy with the wedding preparations. An exhausting period, yet it was fun at times.
It's nice to be the center of attention.. the bride who's pampered by everybody. Countless advices fall on you from everywhere and from anyone you meet randomly and finds out that you're a bride to be. You start to become more nervous and restless with each passing day. You feel that time is passing soooo slowwwwly and you wish that you can, by some magical power, make the days run fast and stop at the big day and put an end to all these anxieties.

The big day arrived, finally. I was advised to calm down and sleep well the night before... and I thought that I won't be able to sleep a wink, but since it was a bit difficult for me to believe that my wedding day has arrived, I actually slept!
I sometimes get confused between reality and dreams that I find a difficulty in distinguishing one from the other :D . Someone pinch me please :D
I really needed someone to pinch me the moment I looked at the mirror in the beauty saloon after having my gown and bridal veil on. I couldn't believe that the one I'm looking at in the mirror is ME. Thank God I didn't rub my eyes and spoil the makeup :p

All was like a beautiful dream. We flew to Istanbul afterwards where I spent a delightful time at the beginning before hubby got back to work and only then I started to feel lonely and nostalgic, until I came back to Lebanon this soon for some reasons that you will know soon.
