Today is our 2nd wedding anniversary. It really does seem like yesterday and the last 2 years have literally flown by! 2013 was such a crazy wonderful chaotic stressful year. My dad had been so ill and went through his transplant just a month before the wedding. In fact, i had put the wedding on hold until i knew any type of prognosis for my dad. I couldnt bare the thought of getting married without my parents being there. They waited a looooooong time to see me marry. HAHA!
The wedding was at a winery called Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine, TX. They were so super strict on what we could and couldnt do and when it had to happen and to be out , etc. It was a gorgeous venue but not sure if i had to do it all over again i would have it there.
The day ended up being the most hottest day of the whole year. SERIOUSLY!! I SWEAR ON MY DOGS! It was miserable outside. Some guests left soon after the ceremony because they didnt feel well that they chalked up to heat exhaustion. Todd's car broke down 3 hours before the wedding and was stranded on the side of the road. He had his brother Kevin and the kids with him. Of all things, my friends who were coming early to do my makeup saw his car and gave them all a ride back to the apartment. The car had to be towed and my brother n law took Todd to the wedding. It was a crazy chain of events that took place that day but WE DID IT!!!
Todd and i have been together for 4 years and married for two of those. I love him so much!
I love being married. I love saying " my husband....". I love knowing that we committed to each other in front of all our loved ones and took an oath under GOD to honor and love each other to death do us part. It hasnt all been a picnic of course. We have had some major disagreements where we have yelled and cried and we wanted to kill each other. During those fights though i never once worried if it would be "the end" for us. That is so comforting and different than when you're only dating.
According to the wedding guides out there, the gift for year 2 is : the traditional is cotton and the modern is china. I didnt get Todd either one of those!! We are having dinner at the fancy steakhouse that Todd proposed to me at. We celebrate our anniversaries there now. I am sooo excited!
