15 Years Ago Today...

 My grandfather and my aunt (now deceased) traveled many miles to a small church in a small town.


15 Years ago today...

My husband's friend walked his grandmother to her seat.


15 Years ago today...

My grandmother (now deceased) and grandfather came all the way from Washington to our small town.


15 Years ago today...

My husband's friend walked his parents down the aisle to their seats.


15 Years ago today...

My stepmom was led to her seat in the front row.


15 Years ago today...

My mom and her brother traveled many miles to this small town, to take their place in the front row of the church.


15 Years ago today...

With tears in both of our eyes, my dad took my arm, and escorted me down the aisle to my best friend; to my future.


15 Years ago today...

My husband and I said, "I do," and kissed for the first time as husband and wife.


15 Years ago today...

We joyfully walked out of the church, arm-in-arm, to a life we could only dream of.


15 Years ago today...

My best friends were with me as I tearfully got dressed, and took that long walk.


15 Years ago today...

Hubs' best friends were with him, as he got dressed, and they all joked about his life being over... and took goofy pictures of him passed out on the floor of the groom's dressing room. The bunch of goobers.


15 Years ago today...

I wore the most amazingly beautiful bridal gown my mind could ever dream up. And wore the most ginormous veil ever conceived. And carried a bouquet that had its own zip code. And had a hairstyle with so much hairspray, we actually used it to cut the cake.

 15 Years ago today...

Hubs and his groomsmen decided to take ONE serious picture before the ceremony. Thank you for that, Hubs.


15 Years ago today...

I stood in front of a groom's cake, with someone else's name on it. (Actually, it was my name, but it was misspelled... so it may as well have been someone else's name on it!) Here is the photographic proof that I showed very little class, and POINTED IT OUT.


15 Years ago today...

My friends dragged my non-dancing husband onto the dance floor, to have a little fun with him.


15 Years ago today...

It worked.


15 Years ago today...

I got to dance with my husband's cousin... whom I can forever claim as my own.


15 Years ago today...

Cousin Kody and Melanie (who just happened to introduce Hubs and me) caught the garter and the bouquet.


15 Years ago today...

I made the best decision of my life.


I love you so much, Hubs. Thanks for being everything I could ever need, and everything I could ever want. This has been the best 15 years of my life, and I can't wait to see what the next many, many years (waaaaaaay more than 15!) hold for us.

Thanks! I think I just walked into the store, and picked the biggest, most hugest one ever. Or something like that. ;)
