Our first year Anniversary!

A year ago bestfriend and I were wed. Nothing fancy but simple and quiet. Jim and I were married during the late morning hour at the county clerk's office. It wasn't some judge but just a clerk who said those scared vows. We only invited our wedding party. See, we had planned on a big wedding but those have since been put on a shelf for now. Jim is a Correctional Officer, and his job is very dangerous, he felt it very important to make things offical...for the 'just in case'. My mom was very pleased because we had been engaged for over 2 years, so she for one was pleased. We were too, but still are going to have 'our wedding' one day. We both plan on the dress and tux and a wonderful party...someday! But for now we are relishing our one year mark as a offical married couple!

Only our closest and dearest friends and family witnessed our union. It was very intimate and very romantic. My parents hosted a luncheon afterwards at the Rio City Cafe. Which every year we will go back and enjoy our memories of that wonderful day. I had purchased roses from Costco to save money. The bouquet in this picture is made from 4 dozen Costco roses. All the ladies loved it and thought it fantastic that I made it. We bought simple bands to wear. And Jim wore his Correctional Officer uniform for the ceremony and myself (with the help of my bestfriend) wore a simple black skirt and silvery, 3/4 sleeve , fancy top. My bestfriend paid to have my hair styled and had my nails done the day before (mani and pedi). She too, wanted me to remember this very special day! It was lovely to see everyone in their finest and coming to witness our union. Each of our friends and family said they wouldn't have missed it for the world. Even though it was on a Friday...some even took the day off to be there.

To the love of my life ~ though this first year has had some rough patches we have seen through them together. I have learned so much from our mistakes and celebrated all of our accomplishments. I love you with no boundries and love you truly. Thank you for choosing me to be your life partner and loving me through and through! Even though we have some distance,the distance truly has made our hearts grow more and have brought us so close to each. We both truly value our limited time together, and no longer let small things bring us down. Instead, we covet our time and rediscover each other all over again. Your warm smile and even warmer eyes, your soft touch and your even softer words. I love you Jim and have all our ten years together. (Jim and I have been together for ten years and married one of those ten)

Thank you friends for letting me celebrate our anniversary!

A very happy anniversary to you and your husband! Life together is a learning process but it is so worthwhile.

I saw your commnent on my blog about your email. I don't have email access right now and it's been hard to get my laptop repaired due to Christmas. I've been borrowing computer time on someone else's computer to quick make my blog posts. Hopefully all will be fixed soon so I can get my emails and respond.

It's obvious that it was very special to you and that is all that matters. When Sweet Hubby and I got married it was just our very closest friends, parents and siblings and not a fine and fancy event up to most other peoples standards. We absolutely cherish the memory of it almost 8 years later.
