Happy Anniversary Shug!!

Posted: September 17, 2008 in Uncategorized

On September 17, 2005, I married the love of my life.  We’ve been through a lot these past three years.  We’ve weathered life’s ups and downs and so far we’re coming out on top. 

Our original wedding date was November 12, 2005 in New Orleans where we lived at the time.  It was going to be a small, but lavish wedding at the Ri.tz Carl.ton in NOLA.  We really wanted small and simple, but my mother had other ideas.  She had kind of taken over and it was going to be a much larger event than we really wanted. 

We evacuated to Dallas the saturday before Hurricane Katrina hit, and have never looked back.  On September 13, 2005 on a whim, we went to the courthouse in Arlington, TX .  We wanted to inquire about getting a marriage license.  The clerk asked us if we had $40 and our driver’s licenses’.  We had both and with that we were able to get our marriage license.  We were so excited.  We decided that we would go ahead with our original plan of a small and simple wedding.  We told my mom that she had until Saturday, September 17th to plan our wedding.  She tried to take over, but she didn’t have enough time.  She did manage to get a two-tier wedding cake, which was DELICIOUS! Old friends and family that had evacuated were our guests. It was small and perfect. 

He’s an amazingly wonderful man, and I’m truly blessed to have him as my husband.  He’s not perfect, but neither am I.  I thank God for him daily.  He’s all that I want and all that I need.
