I’m slowly preparing for my handfasting on Saturday. It’s going to be a very simple ceremony Over There, basically me, the Dreamer, our Partner, and some members of our f/Families as witnesses.
It’s been a surprisingly intense few days, at least in terms of their presence around me. There’s been a lot of discussion of what exactly this handfasting means, for all three of us (the Dreamer and my Partner have a similar QP relationship going on, so this handfasting has evolved into being for all three of us.)
I was surprised when I got emotional when they asked me to changed my jewelry for them. I have a silver key pendant I wore for them together, but they both asked me to change it. I figured I’d have to buy a new pendant–I’d been thinking about doing that anyway. But I went to put the necklace into my jewelry box, and I found a pendant they deemed acceptable.
We’ve discussed rings (and they even had me favorite some on Etsy they liked,) but have agreed to not get anything until the 6 month or one year anniversary.
I have pretty much everything prepared, so now there’s this sense of waiting. It’s not a suspenseful waiting, it’s an anticipation waiting.
