I am still smiling a day later, so here's my post from yesterday... Feel Good Friday
Why do you put all the energy, thought and, yes, money into planning your big day?
Is it because you have family and friends coming to witness your vows and you want to treat them to a big party? Maybe.
Is it because you have dreamed, ever since you were a little girl, of the day you married, the dress you'd wear, the song you'd dance to? Perhaps.
But the reward of all your hard work is where I am today. You see, today my Husband and I are celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary. Although our lives have become full of children and homework and jobs and housework, we'll sit down tonight after the kids are in bed and pull out our wedding album. We'll look at the pictures of the ceremony, I'll groan (as I always do) about how much eye makeup I was wearing, he'll tell me to stop, I was beautiful. We'll point to the photos of the children that were invited and comment on how young they look. We'll smile as we look at the pictures of the family members that are no longer with us, my Dad, his Nana. We'll talk a little about how styles have changed, who has lost hair, who has lost weight, and relationships that have changed since that day.
Then we'll put the leather-bound album back into its protective case and back on the shelf. We'll smile at each other and say, I love you.
Then we'll probably watch House.
