Our Anniversary

A long, long time ago, in a land far, far away, the fairy tale began when we were young, dumb, and in love. Fast forward 19 years to 2 kids, 7 moves, countless animals, several cars (our friends know we go through trade-in spells), trips to Florida, trips to the ER, and countless other memories and experiences.

Reality: we were married 19 years ago today.

Here are some of our memories of that day...

As my bridesmaids were walking down the aisle, I was waiting in the stairway and it was either laugh or cry because I was so nervous. So, I was told to quit laughing because the people in the sanctuary could hear me.

I remember crying as I was walking down the aisle.

I remember Carl holding my hand so tight that my hand hurt!

I remember looking out the window when I should have been listening to the minister and seeing my friend S holding her young son C.

I remember when we were having pictures taken before the wedding, my dad cut his hand and in our wedding pictures he has blood on his hand.

Carl remembers his friends telling him to run while he still had a chance. Funny, very funny.

Carl remembers me walking down the aisle and that's all he will say.

I wish I would have had more pictures taken at the church.

I must have had a good time at our reception because Carl remembers having to drag me out of there.

Here are more pictures from our special day.

This is the church we were married in. Zion United Church of Christ in Dyer, IN

This picture of our wedding party was taken at the church.

These are our parents. Notice their smiles. My parents are smiling because the phone bill will be going down. Prince Charming's parents are smiling because their food bill will be going down. We're smiling because we were clueless.

Through all the ups and downs, good times and bad times, I can't say that I would want to experience life with anyone else. Thank you Prince Charming for 19 wonderful years.

Lots of congratulations! What a great tribute to 19 years. You deserve lots of praise for that.

I enjoyed the walk down your memory lane, and the pictures. (I can't believe how much styles and fashions have changed in less than 20 year!) :)
