The 2 men in my life: my daddy, my husband
My gorgeous family
The passing of almonds (an Italian tradition of thanks)
Our beautiful cake
Our first toast
Dancing with my daddy (to the theme from the Godfather, no less)
I snagged me a good one!
My new family!
Today I will marry my best friend ~ the one I laugh with ~ dream with ~ live for ~ love
4 years ago today I became a Mrs. I can say with all honesty, that it was the happiest day of my life. It rained in the morning which is supposed to be good luck. I think people just say that though because what bride wants it to rain that day! But, by late morning it had stopped. The sun came out, although it was still a little chilly. And at 3:30 that afternoon I married my soul mate. I know that I recently told you a little bit about the dynamics of our family. That was so if I ever mention something that doesn't seem quite right (like for instance: the boys are going to their mom's this weekend) you won't be scratching your head wondering if whether I was drinking heavily in the wee hours of the morning or smoking something last night. Today I want to share some photographic evidence of what the happiest person in the world looked like.
See I was 28 years old, overweight and truly convinced that I would never find someone. Then my old friend came back into my life. He loves me for me with all of my faults and I have QUITE a few. When I was complaining about my weight he told me that it was my soul he loved and all souls weigh the same. Makes me cry just remembering. He makes me laugh, he can make me cry and while yes there are days I could just kill him - on any given day my heart just aches when we're not together. He is my love and my rock and my best friend. I love you, Kenny!
Thanks for sharing my memories.
