#thehashtag

Recently I saw a post by one of my young friends who was bummed that she just missed the boat on the pre-wedding hashtag.  ME TOO!!!  I am such a #wannabe!  We SO missed out on being in the hashtag generation and validating our relationship with that little symbol! I mean if you hashtag it, it’s real right?  It’s like that whole…if a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound thing. If we got engaged and married without a hashtag…are we really married? #hashtag-less  #arewelegit?

As our anniversary looms near, I enviously confess the desire to could get married all over again…to each other of course… so that we could experience the twenty-first century version of getting hitched.  I am wistful that I didn’t get that pinterest-perfect wedding proposal with a photographer in tow to capture the moment for posterity. #flashmob-posals  #marrymemurals  #epiccreativity.   Ours was rather…#HeaskedIsaidyes  #vanilla  #nopictures  Even going to a high school prom apparently warrants a proposal these days?!  #promposals!?!?  #whatintheworld  #ican’teven?  Missed that one too.  : /

I am also a bit green that we missed out on the MEGA cool engagement pictures to rival any of our actual unimaginative wedding shots where families lined up staring straight into the camera. I want those inspired #lyinginmeadows  #crossingbridgesatsunset  #umbrellasandrainboots kind of Kodak moments to cherish forever. Oh well…

I am really sad that we didn’t have a pre-wedding hashtag to attach to all of those smiling couple pics on Instagram or FaceBook.  #soontobestevens  #stevensinseptember #suddenlystevens!  Of course social media hadn’t even been invented back in the olden days? Ummm…I forget…#didAlGoreinventthattoo?

How I would have loved having those handwritten notes to exchange right before the ceremony on the wedding day.  #lettersfrombirthtofuturespouse  #bringyourkleenex  #uglycryface  #makeupnomore

I am semi-bummed that we missed out on the bachelor/bachelorette parties ADVENTURES to exotic locales to end our single status. #howdothebridesmaidsaffordthis?  #whoneedstosaveformarriageanyway?  #hopefullydoesn’teclipsethehoneymoon

I am disappointed that we missed our Baby Moon both times.  #justhappytobetogether  #savingfordiapers #takingcareofbaby#1  I never even got one Push Gift? What is up with that? #maybeIwouldhavepushedharder  #ithoughtthebabywasthegift  #sillyme!  #sleepwouldhavebeenenough!

#Whatisthestatuteoflimitations?  #steve???

Even though, we missed all that…. #itallworkedout   #stillstevens  #ifoundmylobster #39yearsandcounting  #September2 #weareSoBlessed!  #steveiloveyou  #thankyouGod!

  1. You are too funny!!! I wouldn’t miss any of that… except for what Lauren said about being able to see pics with one click!!! I absolutely HATE that proposals are now a WORLD event!!! It’s no wonder though… with everyone having to share even what they had for dinner!!! Whatever happened to a romantic boy/girlfriend proposal with just the two of them… no staging, no cameras, no other people present!! I would hate it if I had been proposed to in this fashion!!

  2. I’m rolling, Pam! This was so incredibly clever.
    But I have a confession – I still don’t understand hashtags or how/when to use them. Call me antiquated, but I like my #sittingquietlyonthedeck status with my #glassofwine. Thanks for the laugh today, my friend, I really need it!
    Love and blessings!
