You Are

Today is Tommy and I's 3rd wedding anniversary! I cannot believe that 3 years ago today I was getting all dolled up and ready for the rest of my life. Crazy how time flies! I'm more than thrilled to have made it this far...not that I think that we wouldn't by any means! Our wedding day was the most perfect day! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and everything fell so smooth. Us girls started our day off by getting our hairs did (hehe) and then moved on to makeup! We went to the MAC counter at Dillard's and if you have never had them do your makeup, you should go! OH MY! It's so dramatic but sooooo much fun! We felt like models when we left there. After getting dolled up, we met back at the church to get in to our dresses and get ready for pictures. Tommy and I decided that we would go ahead and see each other before the ceremony. It just seemed easier that way...for pictures and the fact that that would be the only time we'd get 'alone' time. I remember my heart was beating SO hard as I was walking up the aisle to meet him. Tommy had his back towards me so he couldn't see me and all he could hear from me were my heels on the aisle. Our photographer was the only other person in the sanctuary at the time so he could capture our first glance. I can't tell you what we said to each other...all I remember was being so incredibly nervous! The ceremony was perfect but again, I don't remember a whole lot! The day went by so fast and there was so much stuff happening!! The reception was a blast and a blur..seems to be a theme here :) I wouldn't change anything about my wedding day except to 1) get it on video and 2) make it last longer! Other than that, it was a dream come true!

I love you babe more and more everyday. Thank you so much for everything you do and have done for me. We've had many ups and downs and I know there are many more to come but I'm happy to know that we WILL conquer anything that comes our way! You are my best friend and my soul mate! You've made me a wife and a mother and I'm forever grateful for both. I love you more than all the jelly beans in the world!!!!

(I had 'More Than Jellybeans' engraved on the inside of his wedding band before we got married! That's 'our' saying!)
