Things That Are True - Seven Years

Seven years ago, I took a moment before the Getting Ready began.

Seven years ago, I actually shrieked in delight when I saw my fiance and his groomsmen running across the church lawn in their kilts - they were a little late, I was a little early, waiting in a vehicle at the curb. HWSNBN insisted that if he couldn't see my dress before the wedding, I couldn't see his either, so it was the first time I saw how great the boys looked.


Seven years ago, I walked down the aisle, arm in arm with both my parents.

And seven years ago, surrounded by family and friends, I married my best friend, my partner in crime, my reason for reason.

 And there was cake.

 It was a spectacular day in every way. 

Seven years later, there is still nowhere I'd rather be than by his side. Wherever he is, is home to me.

Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.*

*And thank you for giving me permission to post pictures of you today.
