WITT #30: A New Phase of Life, A Wife!

As you may already know or see my wedding pictures from my blog or my social networks channels, so we just got married on 11th of August, 2018 in my hometown Jakarta, Indonesia.

Yes, I am a wife from the lovely and kind-hearted man I’ve ever met.

I don’t mean to manipulate or exaggerate my words above, but it’s truly what I feel about him. He is the most amazing husband that I’ve ever had. Since the first time our relationship begins, he always keeps his promises and he is committed of what he said.

For some people, marriage can be a scary thing or even a strangest thing, but not for us. He is the most brave man I’ve ever met, even he is younger than me, but the way he thinks is even more mature than me. He is really respected with me who is still learning to be a feminist and wanted to have a healthy balance marriage.

When a lot of husbands out there, will demanding to change the family name after marriage …

He does not want to. He let me choose what I want, even my decision to keep my original and full name which is given by my parents.

Since we were in a relationship, I can be totally myself in front of him and that is the most important, so do him. For example, farting and burping can be the most impolite thing to do in front of people, but he is fine and always telling me “release your self …” ((LOL))

Or simply because he just wants to make me happy hahaha.

Marriage for us is something we hope, will keep as a teamwork, share each other feelings, be a good listener and a good adviser for each other, and a best friend for life. I know we both are still learning how the marriage works, what we have to do when things don’t work, or simply what we will cook for today. But what I knew, I found someone who never makes me question about my own self-worth, who supports me in the things that I really passionate about. And treat each other with an equality, someone who respects my heart, my family and my values. And I hope I do the same way to you.

I am not promising you that marriage life is easiest things to do, but it will be easier when we share everything, share our strength, weakness, communication, respect, love, passion, craziness and many more.

So bubz, let ’s enjoy the ride!

I think some of you already watched the movie called “Me Before You” with the actors Sam Claflin and Emilia Clarke. For me, the movie was very touchy and has successfully made me cry every time I re-watched it or maybe because I am the one who is very whiny with romantic movies.

Well, I won’t talk about the first book and the movie, but I will talk about the second book which titled, “After You”. I bought this book when I had to wait for my next flight from Stockholm to Jakarta last May 2017 and just finished reading the book couple weeks ago. And it always makes me wanted to continue to read it till finished.

Moving on and starting over something after broken hearted and deep-loss might be very difficult for some people like Louisa Clark did after William Traynor had passed away. It has been a hard time for Louisa to “just live well” after Will’s death and it showed Lou’s struggle with moving on. It showed how his death affected other characters and how people struggled to relate following such a tragedy. Louisa even has to join and attends Moving On support group, but it doesn’t make her feel much better and forget about Will so easily, moreover when she finally met with a-16-years old girl named, Lily.

Who is Lily? — is becoming an important part of this book. Since she came to Louisa’s life, it has brought a rollercoaster to Louisa’s life, just like Will Traynor did before. Also another and new important person to Louisa’s life, the Ambulance guy, “Sam” also brought new colour of her love life after Will’s death. He is a pretty much very lovely guy and has successfully brought happiness into Louisa’s life changing, and of course, to help her move on after Will’s death.

The family issue also happened in the second sequel to this book, both Lou’s family and Will’s family. After Will’s death, his parents decided to divorce and live their own life. What was happening to their family? You will also discover their story in this sequel!

All over, “After You” makes the whole story of Lou and Will little bit complicated at first, but finally I enjoyed to read this book and it still worth to read if you really curious about the whole love story of Louisa and Will Traynor.

My promises to loving you forever

This is my blog post which I write, especially for my lovely significant other and also to my future husband who I’m going to spend my life with, this is how I’m going to love you.

I would love to do thousands of dates with you during my whole life, like travel the world, try new recipes, watch a movie in a cinema, have fine dining or even it will only to do marathon movie watch on Saturday night on our love-couch. While I will pamper you with your favourite hot chocolate or hot green tea and give my lap for you to lay down on me.

I will accompany you every time you work with your hundred stones and give you hugs from behind while you do the research on it, just to make you feel comfortable and give you some spirits! I will also make hiking be my new hobby so we can see many hidden gems and beautiful wild plants and animals in the forests. So we can feel the morning haze will cover our sight every time we wake up in our tent. Not to forget, I would love to enjoy every beach sands while we walk on every beach in the world, to feel the sands and the sea water touch our feet, to hear the sea wave and breeze in our ears, as well as to watch and capture every sunrises and sunset together.

I will try to cook many recipes that I’ve got from YouTube channels and prepare it for your breakfast, lunch box and dinner, even all you know that I could only cook nasi goreng or instant noodles, for now. But I want to spoil you with my foods that I cook for us in our future home 🙂

Do you still remember our wish-list to Paris? I will not only invite you to go to the top of the Eiffel tower just to see how beautiful Paris city or only to visit Sacre Cour, but I’d rather want to stroll around the city, visit museums, Shakespeare’s bookstore and any other historical buildings, then let we try to find out about the history of each place together, while I will enjoy my cup of cappuccino outside one of a cafe in Paris and you will enjoy your pain au chocolat.

I am the one who will initiate to design our interior apartment for us to live in, with you as my assistant interior design (lol), we will make our small place feels like the best sanctuary for our little family in the future, where we will have our postcards collection as one of our home decoration, full of our pictures and put colourful paint, mosaic patterns, as well as succulent plants!

When the rain pouring down our home, I would like to stay with you all day in our bed and cuddle with you. I will love to give you kisses on your lips to make you feel love, then after play with your Pinocchio nose ❤

I will love to spend holiday either in your family’s place or my family’s, for me, they are the most important things in our life and we must take care of them too!

You know I really want to see the aurora borealis with you, if that special moment will finally come, I promise I would like to take picture of us while we do French kiss (shy) to capture our lovely moment!

You will see how my life will be full of many lists that I need to be checked and fulfilled sooner or later, but I wouldn’t mind skipping some of those lists, just because I realise, the only prioritize in my life, for now, is to make you feel happy, to be loved and to take care of you always ❤

Six months ago today, we met each other in Toulouse. And I still can’t believe we still stick and love each other till this time. Thank you for making me believe that our different, in terms of distance, time zone, religion and culture, are not big barriers for us to love and respect each other, we do realise those things which make our love getting stronger each day.

But above of all, I just want you to stay. Always stay here with me, no matters what will happen with us later. I just want to live longer with you so I can feel to be the happiest wife for you and wonderful Mom for our children during my whole life.

This my promises to you, let me loving you forever, Igor.

I want you stay through it all. I don’t want you to ever leave. I want you to stay because you want to, because there’s nowhere else you’d rather be
