Our Anniversary

That was Joe and I's wedding song exactly one year and one day ago. (Don't bother doing the math, I'll break it down for ya -- We had Summer, then Camryn, then got married :-) )

We had a lovely anniversary yesterday. We ate right when Joe got home from work, and then my parents came over and watched the girls while we went and saw a movie. We saw a nice romantic movie - "W." Haha... It was good though, it did make fun of our lovely Mr. President a bit, but it also made you think and almost feel sorry for him. I'm sure everyone will take away something different from it.

I can't believe it's been a year since our wedding. It was the only beautiful weekend in October. The temperature was perfect and there was not a cloud in the sky. We had the wedding at the church I had grown up going to, it is where my parents got married as well.

My brother Wes was Joe's best man, my friend Nicole was my maid of honor. It was a classic, basic wedding ceremony. We had about 40 guests, who were all of our close family and friends.

We had a reception in the church's basement afterward, with a first dance between my dad and I, and then Joe and I. We cut the cake, my brother gave a nice toast, and we did the garter and bouquet tosses.

Our flowers were gorgeous. I had personally picked each and every type of flower out. My main flower was a Bird of Paradise. It was my uncle Bobby's favorite flower. He passed away from AIDS when I was 9, and I felt that it was a way to honor him.

After two children and one year of marriage, Joe and I are stronger than ever. I am still deeply in love with him and so grateful that at my young age I have this wonderful foundation for happiness. We share the same hopes and dreams, and I look forward every day to achieving them with him.
