Our Perfect Day
Four years ago today, without a doubt in my mind, marks one of the happiest days of my life.
27 years of patiently searching before I could finally embrace my love of a lifetime.
You’re irreplaceable, inspirational, and incredibly all mine.
ANNIVERSARY BLOG IS TO SHARE WITH YOU
WHAT I WROTE FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY.
This all became a reality as Scott and I were going through the serving line at our rehearsal dinner. During the past few months we had eaten several celebration dinners but this one was different. This one marked the beginning of an extraordinary journey empowered by love. I sighed, took it all in because…. Tomorrow I was getting married.
At 6 AM, I put on my workout clothes and ventured in the darkness to the 1980’s workout room at the hotel where I ran a few miles and lifted squeaky weights from an old rustic bench. I changed into my swimming suit and soaked my feet into the frosted hot tub with a gleaming smile on my face. Today I was getting married.
I get the dreaded phone call from Scott saying the storms are moving in fast and we were to meet at 2 o’clock to take photos, BEOFRE the wedding. Panic. I didn’t want to see him before, and there was no way I could be ready in time.
The next hour was a blur, I saw people, dresses, food, makeup, shoes, etc… I do remember chowing down an entire Jimmy John’s sandwich. But for the most part, this is how it happened. It was really a Cinderella experience, I stood there, my mom waved a wand and I was the most beautiful princess in town. That’s when I posed by the clock and it read 2 PM. I was supposed to be at the Sun Bridge in Dow Gardnes. Guess what, I am late!
Here I go, down the isle. The walk I had always dreamed of. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. I began the journey towards my husband.
9AM……..A truck somehow smashed through our hotel room door and ran me over. Every single part of my entire body ached. We packed up and headed home because there was another reception in Nebraska exactly one week later.
The next day we do it all again. Another party with a room full of Lebanese people! These people know how to throw a party! The afternoon starts with the most amazing toast from my dad.
hat night we feasted on the most amazing Lebanese meal, danced on chairs and even went down the waterslide in my wedding dress. The events ended just as I dreamed of, staring off hand in hand watching the fireworks.
This week was the absolute highlight of my life; it was every last bit of everything I dreamt it would ever be. I have a wonderful, patient, kind, funny husband who I will cherish every day with. I am the luckiest girl in the world.
I promise to care for you, sniffles and all.
I promise to be loyal and true to you.
I promise to set aside time for you.
I promise to be your best friend.
I promise to consider your feelings.
I promise to keep my legs shaved for you!
I promise to make you laugh.
But most importantly,
I promise to love you, forever.
So.....On our anniversary this year what do we do for each other? Scott buys me beautiful sunflowers.
What do I do for him? I finally repay him for the worlds nastiest cup of death he gave me four years ago!
