I can't believe it's 5 years today. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was nervous, yet so excited. I remember the night before I could hardly sleep. The Jessica's kept telling me to go to bed, I just couldn't wait.
The house was full of people, everyone ready to share our special day with us, the day that we had planned for months. It was finally time. The dress was tied, the shoes were on, the pictures were taken. The limo was waiting. It was go time. We piled in and headed to the church where you were waiting.
They made me wait in the limo for what seemed like forever. I was no longer nervous. I was just so excited, I couldn't wait to see you.
Finally, it was time for me to get out. I walked that short walk from the parking lot to the church doors. I could see the pews full of people, all there for us. Again, it was so surreal. I couldn't see you, I peeked but you were hiding too.
They stuck me in a side room to keep me hidden. I watched the guest come in and sit down, and my girls line up to get ready to walk down the aisle.
Then they told me I could come out. My grandpa and uncle were there. Good thing, because I felt like my feet forgot how to work. The wait took forever. I could see you though the door, waiting with a nervous smile.
Then the doors opened.
I wasn't nervous. Our eyes met and I was safe.
We have been though so much in our 5 years of marriage, I can't wait to see what the next 5 years hold for us and our sweet little family. Thank you for being there for me, for loving me unconditionally and for giving me this beautiful life.
