Wedding Memories

Eight years ago today I married 
my best friend - the LOVE of my life!

Over the years I've been asked the same 
question over and over...
"is he always this FUNto be with?"

Sall is my constant source of joy and laughter...

I pretty much knew from the beginning
that this guy was someone I could hang out with
for the rest of my life!

I'm usually the serious one,
and I tried to put my foot down at our wedding rehearsal

The next thing I know he's got the dog trained
to drag him out of there!

Little Max was just a puppy at our wedding
and after that little stunt I made sure he stayed 
in the garage until after the "I do's"!

the wedding ceremony went off beautifully
we both stayed serious and got through it
with only a few tears.
(tears of joy,of course)

Josie was the happiest that we finally got hitched!

My family provided a beautiful spread of food for the reception.

After days of torrential winds and harvest trucks
zooming past the farm...
on that, our wedding day, we woke up
to the most beautiful calm day 
and the neighbors all parked the harvest trucks
in honor of our wedding (a very nice thing)!

A small group of family and friends gathered in the back 
yard and witnessed our vows to each other.
Afterward some musician friends and family
got out their guitars, and electric organ
and entertained us into the evening.

It was a most unforgettable weekend with
all of our family and we will always treasure
the memories we have from that labor day
weekend 2003!

Here it is eight years later and it 
seems like yesterday...
I'm still laughing 
and we still find joy in each other
every day!

Have a great day!
from me and my better half,
