Eight Years Ago Today….

….my father and my son escorted me down the aisle to the man who could make my heart skip a beat with just one look (and still can).  

My dad and I stood in the foyer of the church, waiting for the doors to swing open and the music to play so I could make my grand entrance.  Dad held Big Al in one arm, with my arm linked in the other.  He kept nervously repeating to himself “Her son, her mother, and I.  Her son, her mother, and I.  Her son, her mother, and I.”  He was so afraid he would mess up.  Bless his heart.

I, on the other hand, was not nervous in the least.  I had not been nervous all day long.  This day had gone just as planned.  I was so relaxed.  I knew that I was destined to spend the rest of my life with Hubby.  I had known it since our first date.  As a matter of fact, when I got home from our first date, I called my best friend and told her that he was the one I would spend the rest of my life with.  And now, here I was ready to walk down the aisle to vow my undying love for him in front of God and family.   

I’ll never forget the look on Hubby’s face when those doors opened.  Our eyes met, and my heart skipped a beat.  He had the biggest smile on his face.  To be quite honest, with the exception of the birth of our children, I don’t think he’s ever smiled a smile so big since then.  

We’ve had our share of ups and downs since August 26, 2000.  We’ve had some really trying times.  We’ve had some wonderfully happy times.  No matter what, though, he is still the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.  Honestly, I love him more now than the day we were married.  


**I wanted so badly to scan some of my wedding pics to share with you (especially of my 21 month old Big Al in his teeny tiny tux) but when I scanned them, they looked awful.  Something must be up with my scanner.  Sorry.
