12 Years Ago Right Now...


Yes, 12 years ago right now we were in the midst of our wedding!
My parents...
Billy's parents...
Granny Kitty...Gilbert Baker playing the marimba at our reception...My wonderful, crazy maid of honor and best friend...

(See, I *said* she was crazy...I couldn't figure out why everyone was giggling while they were taking pictures...only later did I find out she had been wearing these Groucho glasses while doing my hair. ;-))
Leaning on a chair after all the festivities...my feet were killing me.
And by this point, I had tossed my shoes somewhere...:-DAs I was going through pictures to scan, it was amazing to think of all that has happened in that 12 years. Lots of things we planned and hoped for....and many more that we didn't plan and certainly never hoped for! It has been an incredible 12 years, and I am so thankful for the blessing of a godly husband who is a wonderful father to our children. I am thankful for all the ways he spoils me, for the ways he works hard to provide for us, for the ways that he goes above and beyond every day. For the thoughtful little details, the ways he makes me laugh, for always being there through the tough times, for putting up with *me*!

Billy...Happy Anniversary, and I love you very much!!
