36 years, but who's counting?

Yep, another year has clicked by, and today I am thinking about my wedding. It was so like the two of us. So simple, so much fun and it featured all our favorite friends and family. They all helped pull it together and what came out was a celebration that to this day, folks talk about. Things that stand out to me are:
  • The candles lining the aisle in the dark church
  • Vases full of Pussywillows
  • That my curled hair was finally relaxing
  • The sound of my friends singing before I came down the aisle
  • How nervous I was, as I approached my husband to be
  • The sight of the Northside guys all in suits
  • Hearing, "Wow, that was a short ceremony, I like that!" (lots of Catholic weddings)
  • The little figure of Ernie (from Sesame Street) on the back of my cake
  • Using the special wine glasses Steve had given to me as a gift
  • My husband tearing up on the receiving line
  • Taking over the popular local bar to cheers and greetings
  • Dancing with my new husband :)
  • A fist fight between one of our good friends and a bar patron....LOL 
  • Leaving together and thinking, we are just getting started.
Always, Kit

Steve and our best friends brother. I think he is giving him some advice on girls.

That is beautiful Kit! I think that is exactly what a wedding should be. Well, maybe minus the fist fight? But at least it wasn't between relatives!
