may 4th 1996

i had eggs on toast for breakfast... i was ravenous.
i didn't like my hair - but i loved the flower wreath with real flowers that my mom bought me to put in it, with ivy & dainty orange blossoms.
It was cold, but not snowing like it is right now as i write this...14 years later.
He was already brown from working outside. Handsome with his broad shoulders and fresh haircut... hazel eyes seeking mine out from the moment i took my first step down the aisle.
We hadn't even been in the same city for a week - with me just home from school...
His confident swagger put me at ease that we weren't as crazy as some would have us believe.
i felt like when he was in the room,
i was home.
i found out on May 4th - that i could just let go of the wedding...
'cause i was in it for the marriage.

Sweet.
I always loved your flower wreath in your hair.
Happy Anniversary!!
I'm assuming you did your annual leg shave today ;)

Happy anniversary! I'm sure you were a beautiful bride - I'd love to see a pic! *hint, hint* :-)

Another vote for a wedding picture post as we were too far away to go to your nuptials (I think it was in Kelowna?)

So glad you were "in it for the marriage" and not just wanting to be "the princess for the day" like so many brides seem to be!

Happy Anniversary... I guess I'm at 14 years too (13 in one marriage, 1 in another!!)

Blessings on you both and on all the little Beselts!
