5 Years Ago Today…
5 Years Ago Today:
was one of the best days of my life. I woke up to the realization that I didn’t have my wedding dress in my possession. Then, once it was in my possession, it was a good two sizes too big. But, I didn’t care. My mom would fix it. I had to concentrate on marrying the man of my dreams.
A lot of that day is a blur. I couldn’t tell you what I ate for breakfast. I remember paying to get my hair done, but not the actual process. Most of that day, my memories are spending great time, in a little room, getting ready with my best friends. My Dad and Step-Mom brought Chick fil a to everyone. I remember that I began to panic a little, when I realized that my bridesmaids had left me and all I had left to do was walk down the aisle. I can remember shaking and my Step-Dad asked me if I was nervous, and I said, “I’m shaking!!” I don’t remember much of the actual ceremony, but I remember turning to light the Unity candle and seeing my Mother In Law bawling her eyes out. Most importantly? I remember the preacher saying the WRONG NAME when he pronounced us to the congregation.
I remember hiding in the back of the reception and scarfing down food. I remember one of the best wedding receptions I’ve ever been to. Maybe it was because it was mine.
Everything that’s happened since that day has been more magical than the actual day to me. Bringing two babies in the world. Actually growing up.
Spending these last five years with my husband, I realize how far I have come. How much he has changed and molded me for the better. Not everything has been fairytales and sugar coated. Let’s face it, it just can’t be that way all the time. You have to have your downs, so you enjoy the ups.
