The One That Really Counts

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary. We wanted to get married on our dating anniversary, but who wants to get married on a Thursday? So we settled on a Sunday evening instead. It just sounds romantic...(sigh)! This is where we got married and also where we stayed last year for our 2nd anniversary. It used to be an old mansion, then it turned into a rehab facility (appropriate, huh?) then restored into a boutique hotel. It was supposed to be sunny and warm and it was cold and rainy. We planned on having the ceremony in the back courtyard at sunset, but Mother Nature forced us indoors. We got married in front of a fireplace in the main dining room. It was intimate and beautiful. When we were taking pictures, my Dad ran out to his car to get an umbrella to shield me, my hair and my dress from getting wet. I thought it was supposed to just be as a protectant in between photos, but the photographer loved it. It turned out to be one of my favorite shots. I look at these photos of our wedding day and I see ignorant bliss. We never knew what life was going to hand us, but we never thought it would be this. I wonder if we will ever be as happy as were on that day 3 years ago.

Happy Anniversary! What a stunning couple : )

We have a group shot from our wedding, and I look at it and think the same things. I see my aunt, happy and blissful...and now she's battling for her life. I see Derick and I, and we were so happy...never expecting our lives to crash. And I see my grandfather, so much less pain in his eyes...

Sometimes it's hard to look at, especially when we don't recognize the people that we used to be.

Enjoy this day together. I hope that we'll (you and I) be that happy again someday, but it might take a lot longer than we think.
