WooHOO – I finally got all the wedding photos organized and put together in a cohesive way. This matters for several reasons, not the least of which, I can finally get my fabulous thank-you’s printed. I’ve got something cool planned (taking a cue from G’s awesome aunt Ethel) and I can’t wait to see how they turn out.
I’m usually not that lax about sending thank you notes, but I did hear that brides have a FULL YEAR to do this. WOW! It’s only been two months – so I’m feeling pretty darn good about that. Though my husband has been riding me a teeny bit. Pfft. I’m ON it. I said.
And NOW. You all can see the pictures here. Right below, in fact. Let me tell you how it works. Just click the first pic (or any in the series; far be it for me to tell you where to start a’lookin’) and it will open into a light box that you can then scroll through at your leisure.
“If you ever feel for one second the love I feel right now, hold on tight and never let go.” Sandra Lynn ~ May 2007
And if you scroll below the photo thumbnails, you’ll discover a blurb that begins our story. If you click through that, you’ll learn how it all happened. The wedding, I mean. Some folks were surprised to find that we were holding such a small affair. Others understood. Still others didn’t have a clue as to what was going on.
So I wrote up a quick little piece about the whole thing. I hope you enjoy both the pictures and my memories leading up to and of our special day. We are incredibly happy and living our lives the only way we know how – madly and passionately in love.
How DID We End Up Married On May 18, 2014?
Gary and I have been together since May 2007. This year, we began our 8th together. We knew that we wanted to get married on my birthday, this year. Before I tell you why, though, I need to explain the eights thing.
My favorite number in the whole wide world is the number 8. I say FAVORITE because while it may also be my lucky number, it is most often my favorite. And things do happen quite a bit for me in combinations of eight – good and bad. For as long as I can remember, this has been the way it’s gone on.
As with anything, after a time, you (or me, as the case may be) begin to consider (whatever) your “thing”. Such has happened with the number eight. Plus, come ON. It’s so SQUISHY and sexy and pretty and…
Oh. Right. I did promise myself I’d try not to slide too far off the track here. There might be folks here who are reading me for the first time. Okay. Where were we?
Right. So, G and I knew we wanted to tie the knot on my birthday this year. I was turning 42 (do the math), we were heading into our eighth year (do the math) together, my birthday is on the 18th of May (okay, sometimes I stretch the 8’s thing a tad)…Read More Here!
