Happy Anniversary

7 years ago, today, it poured rain.  I splashed through puddles under the cover an umbrella.  I arrived at the church I attended as a little girl and I was married.


So, today, I'll forgo lovingly poking fun of my handsome husband as I have been known to do in previous posts.  Instead of turning him into a meme or tells you the story of his crime fighting underwear, today, I'll focus on the love.


Where I did have one of those love at first sight moments with my husband, when our paths crossed (again).


I did not have one of those love at first sight moments with my dress.  The dress I thought was "the one" had accidentally been altered 3 inches too short 30 days before our wedding day.


But, as I walked down the aisle, on my dad's arm, in my new wedding dress...


wearing my perfect wedding shoes...


The less than perfect wedding dress didn't seem to matter because at the end of the aisle was the man that always knows what to say to make me laugh.


And, I suppose in addition to knowing what to say to make me laugh, he also knew what to say to get me to marry him.


"Ain't That a Kick in the Head" by Dean Martin ushered us into our reception.  The lryics:  "How lucky can one guy be.  I kissed her and she kissed me.  Like the sailor once said, ain't that a kick in the head.  My head keeps spinning; I go to sleep and keep grinning; If this is just the beginning, My life's gonna be beautiful." immediately bring me back to that rainy day and I can't help but smile.


That's not the only song that reminds me of my wedding day, though, "The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra, was the first song we danced to as husband and wife.


Wedding traditions were fulfilled.


Cake was eatten.


Memories were made.


They say, rain on your wedding day is good luck.


I would have to agree because after 7 years of marriage, I am still head over heels in love with my handsome husband.


Dean Martin was right, "My life is gonna be beautiful".

  4. Happy anniversary to you! What a gorgeous couple you are!

    I can imagine what a panic you would have been in having your dress altered too short right before the wedding. I'm so tall that this would have sent me into a tailspin of Bridezilla-ness (I had 3 inches ADDED to my dress when I ordered it, so yeah... I'm pretty tall).

    I hope that you two had a lovely anniversary (soggy basement aside). You should break out those champagne floats again! :)

  20. Amy - what a beautiful post. One of my favorites! Best line ever "instead of turning him into a meme...", haha, I'm completely cracked up when I read that. I really love your dress and I think it's so fitting that we could see your "heels". I love getting a glimpse into the life of one of my favorite bloggers. Thanks for sharing and hope you had a perfect anniversary.

  25. Awwwwwwwww, sniff! 7 years, awesome! I think marriage is one of the most difficult things in life, even harder than parenting at times (shock!). Every year together is a blessing. Loved your wedding shoes!
