The spontaneous decision to wed this past Sunday was the product of a week's worth of distress as we tried to figure out a wedding date in May that would be compatible for all members of our family. K proposed to me on December 15th and soon thereafter we flew out to Colorado where I met his mom for the first time. I completely adore his family! During our traditional Japanese New Years meal with my family, my mom commented that April through July were bad months for us (she's a believer of numerology.) So that left us with no other choice but to "elope" with our families' blessings...
My friend, a local judge, officiated our wedding at Torrey Pines State Reserve Park. A small group of us hiked out on a trail, and although it was windy and chilly (we had to wear jeans and thermals to keep warm) it was a very sunny, clear day. We shared our personal vows, and K rocked out on his acoustic guitar as we sang a song that he composed. Later that day, we checked in at L'Auberge Del Mar for some wonderful pampering. It was a truly perfect weekend.
