Our Wedding. It was a gorgeous day. The weather was perfect, and we had a great time!
This is one of the best photo's I have of Brent and I. The photographer lost all the pictures he took of the two of us together in the church. We still have all the group shots but this particular picture was the only one he had of just the two of us and it was at the end of the night. I still like it : )
Last night Brent and I were commenting on it being our 17th Anniversary today. I asked him, "Can you believe it's been 17 years?" With his quick wit he answered, "It seems like 27" lol! "Sometimes it does" I said.
Aren't we adorable? Back when love was young (and I didn't use tanning lotion) and we had no idea of the highs and lows that lay ahead of us. But I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I loved this mermaid style dress, puffy shoulders and all. Anything else would have overwhelmed my petite frame. The dress sits in a closet now; clean, boxed and sealed. Neither of my girls could ever wear it because they are both larger than me. Not that they would want too anyway.
Both pictures of me were taken at my parents beautiful home. I thought the back of the dress was so elegant.
Of course the day was rather stressful, and I was late . . . but in my defense I had to wait downstairs in the church so I couldn't hear the music when it started. Brent thought I might not show up!
But I did. And here we are, 17 years later.When the girls were little it was the toughest emotionally. Both of us were always tired, but we never gave up. Brent and I are not the types to argue. We prefer to talk things out, so I think that has made a huge difference in our relationship.
Not to mention we both have a pretty good sense of humor.
Here's to the next 17 years and whatever they may hold!
