6 Years ago today…

It may have been 6 years ago today…
But it seems like only yesterday
I was getting my hair done and slipping into that ivory dress
adding a veil to my hair and covering all the girls in shimmer powder
All this before walking down the aisle to marry the man of my dreams
not only is he extremely good looking
he is smart, super funny, and spiritual leader
one of the most honest evangelical men I know
                                                 Jake with Hailey’s escort
We started our life together in a more unconventional type of fashion
one that we are not recommending to our children
one that I will share with you in more detail later this summer
Our daughter Frank was 4 when we got married
It was just as much, if not more of her wedding than ours
she even had her own escort to walk her down the aisle
Our wedding party consisted of our closet friends and our siblings.
most of the people in our wedding were couples!
Although some things change
people move, people change, relationships end
this is still the group of friends that will hold a special place in my heart
Then it was time to walk down the aisle
and now to say our vows before our family and friends
to promise to love each other no matter what
to be submissive
to honor God with our marriage
Whoot whoot, Husband and wife
Not many people believed us
but the moment we gave out marriage to God
and did things according to his plan
we felt different
we felt a sense of peace and comfort
knowing that the Lord would bless our marriage
this is one of my favorite pictures
Frank is covering her eyes as we kissed for pictures
we are not big on PDA
so she was not used to it!
Now heading to the party
Our reception was so much fun
celebrating our marriage
with great food
A taco bar
because that’s how we roll
a beautiful and even more delicious cake
surrounded by family
friends and lots of kids
all dancing and having a great time
I could not have asked for a better day
the weather was great
the company was perfect
and the peace that covered everyone
was felt by all who attended
A peace that could only come from our God in Heaven
Happy 6th wedding Anniversary Hubby!
I love you so much
I am so blessed to have such a Godly man to the leader of our home!
