Today is the last day of the Blog Every Day in May challenge and the last prompt is a vivid memory.
I have so many vivid memories that I was actually not sure if I wanted to choose one and write about it. Sometimes I'm weird like that, I get lazy to make those kinds choices. But I decided to finish the challenge with you guys so here I am.
I am just going to tell you my most recent vivid memory -- a moment on my wedding day.
While I waited inside the car, my friend, Niki saw me, opened the car door and said, "I hate you, ang ganda mo!" (I hate you, you're so beautiful!)
I don't know why but the minute she said it, the floodgates opened and the tears started streaming down my cheeks. I couldn't stop them. Nikki had to go in and wait with me. I cried and laughed and cried and laughed and cried again. I didn't even know exactly the reason I was crying at the time and I still don't. Whenever Nikki tried to tell me something, I'd start crying all over again. It was crazy.
The driver, a man probably in her early 50's turned to look at me. I think he was a romantic because of the way he smiled at what was going on. He said that he encountered a lot of brides who forced themselves to cry while I, on the other hand, just couldn't stop. He handed me a box of tissue paper so I could dry my tears and blow my nose. That was just fortunate because the tissue paper I had in my pouch was all wet and soggy.
Needless to say, I ruined my eye makeup before I even marched down the aisle. I was lucky my makeup artist was there and did something about it.
Sorry, I don't have a photo of this moment My photographers were too busy doing something else.
I have something taken probably five or ten minutes after.

And to Jenni, thank you for a great challenge. I had a wonderful time writing and reading what others have written.
