♥ Happy Anniversary, Shannon! ♥

May 18th is our seventeenth wedding anniversary, and since I will be gone on this special day, I wanted to post this before I leave.

One of my favorite stories that Shannon tells is the story of our wedding day.

Every year at our anniversary I make ask him to tell me this story.

He says when he was standing at the front of the church waiting on me to walk down the aisle, he was so nervous. Then the doors of the sanctuary were opened and he saw me. Sigh
He said I looked so beautiful to him anyway. He was trying to just take the moment in.......
Then everybody in the sanctuary stood up, and he couldn't see me anymore.
He just wanted everybody to sit down so that he could just gaze upon my beauty look at me........Sigh

I love when he tells me that story.

Of course, now he probably sees me way more than he wants to some days. (Just kidding!)

I thank God every day of my life for my marriage and my family.
My cup runneth over.

Happy Anniversary, Shannon!

♥I love you!♥

I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine.

I also want to say that May 18th is my daddy's birthday!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

I love you too!:)

Happy Anniversary to you and Shannon! I love to see wedding pictures of back in the day. What a beautiful bride you were.
My very favorite part of any wedding is watching the groom's face when he sees his bride. I always want to see the bride, but I always look at the groom's face first. That's precious what Shannon said (says) to you about that moment.
Have a blessed day & a peaceful day as you continue to pack and prepare.

So much you'll miss. So much you'll gain. God will bless the difference between.

Sail well...sail with Him.

Sigh, I love weddings! If I could have any other job in the world, it would be a wedding planner. I am such a sucker for weddings!
