Nineteen Years.... Really?

I remember
the proposal at a University of Alabama football game
saying "yes," then immediately locking our keys in the car
I remember
finding the perfect dress, but then buying it a size too big in another town
the perfect shoes and veil all within my budget
I remember
walking down the aisle and saying "I do"
knowing it was the best thing that had happened in my life
I remember
Mom and Traci and Parris
Carson, Mikal, and Matt
I remember
how perfect the weather was that day... warm breezes and blue sky
and how perfect the weather was for our honeymoon
a ski trip where buckets of snow seemed to fall from the sky
But what I didn't realize then
was just how blessed my life truly would be
with a comfortable home
and a precious family of my own.
Happy Anniversary to us!
