Wow, it's been Twelve Years!

Twelve years ago today, I was single.  Not lovin it, ha ha!  Right about this time, I was heading to the church to get dressed for my wedding!  I can still remember so much about that day, all the people who came to wish us well, all the fun we had.  I wish we had been able to enjoy it all night long, but we planned the ceremony way too late and people left to go home to bed.

When I look back at that day, I think, Wow, what a big dress I wore!  And, then, I remember how hard it had been for Troy and I to live so far apart and how excited we were to be able to see each other every day.  Back then, everyone didn't own a cell phone with unlimited minutes, we actually had pagers.  And calling cards.  I can't wait to try to explain these things to my daughters...

Anyway, we got to talk to each other once a week.  Or, in case of a wedding emergency.  Sometimes, I made those up, lol!  It was awful, being so far apart.  But, one good thing we had was letters.  I still have every letter we ever wrote to each other, even from back before we were dating.  I think I will be very happy, someday, to have those to look back at and read.  (I don't have time now, ha!)

Anyway, here is a picture from our wedding day...Enjoy!

I am so lucky that I got to marry the man who was my best friend for so long before we even started dating.  He has stayed that best friend and we've grown closer through everything life has thrown at us.  I look at him know and am in awe of the wisdom he has.  What a perfect man God picked out for me!
