Pergola of Love

So Rambo and I are building the wedding pergola that we are getting married under. We are building it together. So far we have only accomplished buying and staining the wood for this project. And I know it was totally my idea, but what was I thinking?

Originally I thought it would not only be beautiful but symbolic of our relationship as well: something we built together (like our relationship) that we could be married under (beginning our lives together) that we could put in our backyard and have for the rest of our lives (while we grow old together.)

But now I'm worried that during the ceremony I'm going to be thinking about a.) how many trips we had to take to Home Depot to get the stain color right, b.) the giant spider I accidentally touched with my bare hand because I thought it was a leaf, c.) the giant spiderweb I put my hand through in the process, which I swear I can still feel attached to me two showers later, d.) the jacket I ruined in the process and e.) the constant bickering about the design that Rambo and I have still not finalized.

Come to think of it, I guess if we can get through building something like this together without pulling out each other's hair, than that is really more of an accurate analogy for life, right?



  1. Ah bickering and not killing each other--now THAT's the symbol of a relationship that truly works. I'm not even being sarcastic :) I'm sure it'll be beautiful.

  2. Y'all should finish it. The design doesn't have to be final, it can be changed/updated throughout y'all's life.

  3. I love the idea of keeping this throughout your life together! Although if designing a pergola is giving you two so much trouble, I'd hate to see what would happen if you ever decided to build a house! ;)
