But those clenched fists. Either she’s cold, or she doesn’t want her picture taken.

I also thought maybe she could be super excited, but holding it back a sense of celebration -- like she just got a great grade or something? Her face doesn't match the hands if the hands are angry.

Maybe she had a flashback to growing up with constant pictures being taken for their blog.

I vote cold. That sweater doesn't look very warm and I think the top underneath is sleeveless. Or, it could be her saying, "I hope. I hope" in response to something her companion said. (Like, perhaps, a diamond ring for Christmas)

I see it's okay if the hemline only covers the knees when one is standing still, not when walking. small steps

Does it seem like Mary is quite a bit taller than those classmates, or is it just a weird perspective of the picture?

I vote cold. It looks like the wind is blowing her skirt, unless she is walking in a way that causes much swinging of the skirt. Still, it's great to see her looking so happy.

I'd say both her and the woman on the far left are cold, but it doesn't really track with the other two carrying their jackets. I  do make that same body movement when there is a cold breeze, though.

I'm pretty sure that's Anna on the far left.  I also think they're cold, or at least Mary is.  That sweater doesn't look like it's very warm.

One thing I've read about fundamentalism is that emotional responses are strictly regulated withing narrow parameters.   Some emotions are simply not allowed, because Jesus, God, joyfully accepting, yada yada.  

Like God has decided you're going to live joyfully in the family home until your Godly husband announces himself and Steve approves (or not).  But then, you get to go away to college...so JOY! 

So maybe a little fist clenching is...I don't know, being cold, emotional suppression, not being able to say anything about being cold...

It’s definitely true for gothard’s teachings. Gothard taught against showing anger at all. Especially in men. I think he probably saw this as a way of protecting women and children from an abusive husband. But you can be abusive as hell and display very little anger. I don’t think his teaching did anything good. He likely never taught males how to deal with their anger. Just stuff it down and put on a calm face. Which does nothing helpful.

In college I remember photographers walking around taking pictures for the website and brochures. It was always super awkward - they would be like - keen doing what you are doing but smile. Act natural. It was always weird. To me it looks like she is in the middle of one of those experiences.

I admit I don’t mind her wearing the dress 3 times. My practical side appreciates it. 

Yep - why not? I’ve never understood why people get stressed out about buying a new dress for each wedding they are invited to. It’s such a waste of money and natural resources, too. As long as you look dressed for the occasion, who cares if you’ve worn that outfit before?

I hate to say it, but I actually agree with Chelsy on something. Yes, I’m shocked too. I agree that online dating can be very helpful to some people. Because sometimes you live a life where you meet very few single people. So how else are you supposed to meet someone? If Sarah had tried online dating 10 years ago, she may have gotten married much earlier. But we know Steve would have never allowed that.

New blog post from Chelsey about the wedding with some really nice pictures. Sarah and Kory met online! 

Yay! Also, I love that almost no family from the Maxwell side were in the wedding party - save for her sisters and Chelsey! Good for Sarah taking a HUGE step toward adulthood and charting her own path. It's clear from the photos she still loves them, but choosing not to figure out how to get the million little ones into the wedding party makes a statement to me.

I see Chelsy hosted Sharia and Lolly Hale. They didn’t post about the wedding so I guess I didn’t realize they were there.

And IMO it's really one of the most flattering outfits I've seen on her.

Does Chelsy mention which dating site she used?  Sarah alone in her own house, with unmonitored and unrestricted internet use.  Who knows what else she discovered?

Me neither! Lots of friends met their SO‘s on various dating apps. Me the other hand? Went the old fashioned way and met a handsome guy on the stairs of our apartment building. 😊

  I’ve spent some time with dating apps.  My most memorable experience was having a man tell me within the first five minutes of meeting him that he had been on trial for the murder of his first wife. Dershowitz was his lawyer and he got off. I checked and it was all true.

I have been using dating apps for a while, but haven't been lucky with them either so far. 

I would prefer to meet new people the old fashioned way, because messages and chats feel cold and impersonal, and also the whole swipe left/swipe right process ... I mean, maybe one person could be interesting, but he's not photogenic, so I might actually skip that profile and miss the opportunity to get to know him just because I didn't like his pics? But it's also true that as one gets older, the opportunities to meet new people in person are fewer because everybody is so busy and caught up in routine, so I guess I'll have to give dating apps one more chance and see what happens.

I met mine on Bumble! :)  We had a great first date and ended up being a perfect fit for each other...but I will say that it took several different dating apps; many, many awkward conversations; and a lot of just really bad dates for me to finally meet him.

If he could afford Dershowitz, that guy must’ve had some money 😐

I met my husband online back in the olden days. 2007 😝

Such a nice post about Sarah's day and her happiness for the bride, contrast this to Terry's post saying God withheld a husband from Sarah until now.  So glad for Sarah that her siblings and siblings-in-law are genuinely happy for her.

  I think he was rich, but not rich-rich, if you know what I mean.  After the death of his wife he became a stay at home dad, so he had enough for that.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
