Wow, so today is our 3rd wedding anniversary. (and my userinfo page looks so cute where my anniversary ticker tells me today is our anniversary!) It's so mind boggling how fast the time goes. I have a few friends who will hit the 5 year mark this June--and I was at those weddings!
One of the things I love the most about the messianic Jewish holidays as well as having a wedding anniversary is that part of what we do is have the day set aside as a time to remember, so even though the day was completly a blur, these things I do remember:
*Waking up at 7am after a very late night finishing our CD party favors with cmarie14
& Brian and georange
*Being so nervous that I couldn't eat and my Dad, who picked me up from my apartment, was so concerned that he bought me a ton of water and later put together a bunch of food selections.
*Randomly finding a hair appointment with my mom that morning (since I kinda forgot) with a lady who did an amazing job, especially getting the flowers into my hair.
*Knowing that the Lubbers opened their home up to two of my friends they had never met, jedibri
*Seeing all my girls, cmarie14
, & thatkaringirl
all downstairs when I arrived. That was nice and helped me to relax
*Having a time of prayer with Pastor Tom and the girls beforehand
*My Dad looking like he was going to cry as we got ready to enter the santuary and as he and my mom would give me away
's hand clutching mine so hard as his Dad spoke a very amazing and touching message
*The bouquet being heavy
*Actually being able to recite the vows right, since I kept screwing them up at the rehearsal
*Not drinking very much of the wine before the glass crushing since I had not really eaten (I guess the Pastor drank the rest of what we couldn't finish)
*Really enjoying getting to hug all the guests and Phil's flower getting so crushed from the hugs
*Doing all the photos afterward and having my feet hurt and my face hurt
*Trying to go to the bathroom required the help of my sister-in-law Annette
*Leaving the church to find my Dad suprised me by renting a Bentley to take us to the reception
*Having random people at the Chart House congratluate us on our way in
*Loving the food since I was famished
*Enjoying the one bite of wedding cake and wanting more since it was SO good
*My brothers Tom and Tim (esp Tim) taking many many pictures of themselves on the disposable camera. I wanted to beat them ;)
*Dancing with Phil and loving the band
*Dancing with my brother Tony and with my Dad
*Being really tired. It was a long day!
*Waking up feeling different and to face quite an interest journey to get to our honeymoon, but that's another story. ;)
Blessings in Christ!
