A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

For old times

Posted by Pepper on January 10, 2013

Dear Mint,

Do you remember the day we took this picture? It was my birthday. We were out, dining with friends. On that particular day, we had absolutely no idea of what our future held. But we were fearless, young and hopeful. And full of idealistic cheer.  We had no idea how we would convince your parents, or how much we would have to fight for our relationship. We had no idea if and when we would get married. But there we were, foolishly rehearsing the coy looks we would be made to sport during our wedding. We mocked and ridiculed and laughed at the concept of posing for wedding pictures.

During one of our mock performances, I picked up the table cloth lying in front of me and covered my head. I lowered my eyes, shyly. You played your role, smiled demurely and held up my chin. It lasted for a split second before we both burst out laughing. But in that one second, the BFF who was sitting across the table picked up the camera and captured the moment forever.

The drama

I laugh each time I see this picture. We look pretty damn genuine, if you ask me. Must thank the BFF for her quick reflexes. She froze the moment and gave us this picture to laugh at. It has been several years, but this picture takes me back to that dinner table, and our naive confidence in everything falling in place for us. Thankfully, it did.

May the faith always remain alive.

    😀 When I look back, it is the same thought that occurs to me – how were we so hopeful and completely unaware of what lay ahead. But I’m thankful that I was optimistic and unaware! Though it was a slightly bumpy ride for us, it feels as though things fell in place magically!
