I love my freedom. I love my America.

S'mores anyone?

15 Years ago today I said "I DO" and married my wonderful husband.

May 4, 1996 was the kind of Spring day that brought a variety of weather conditions. The day started a little cloudy, then we had a few rain drops and finally the sun came out. It was a fairly large wedding with about 275 guests. Oh, it was an awesome day. We got married at high noon in the church I grew up in. The church was overflowing - we had to add folding chairs behind the pews. We each had 5 attendants, a flower girl and a ring bearer ~ a great combination of family and friends. We had a harpist and a very good friend of mine sang for us.

Our adult dinner reception started at 5:00 with drinks and then dinner was served at 6:00. We chose to have multiple flavored cheesecakes rather than a traditional wedding cake. Everyone loved it. We didn't have ANY left over except the one we purposely saved for ourselves. We had a band (as opposed to a DJ) that provided great dance music. A good time was had by all.

I'm looking forward to celebrating many more years of marital bliss.
