At this time 3 years ago, I was laying down to rest before I married my best friend. I had a busy morning setting everything up, we even had to make a last minute trip to Wal-Mart (I was lucky I didn’t run in to Casey, turns out we were at Wal-Mart at the exact same time). I didn’t know if I would have a cake, my Daddy had to drive to south Fort Worth to get it. Casey says his day was laid back, he went to Wal-Mart got a new tire(we had a blow out on our way to rehearsal), went to lunch with friends, and pretty much did nothing. While I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off, until I was sent to the house I was staying at to relax.
When I arrived to get dressed and chat with my girls, I was overwhelmed with butterflies. I don’t know what the boys were up to but I have seen the pictures it looks like they were having fun. As I was ushered up stairs to get in my dress and finish getting ready, I felt so anxious. Mostly I was worried about falling down the stairs during my entry. Everything else about that day flew by, now that I look back it wasn’t the perfect day but that doesn’t matter we were married and that is all that matters.
Today is the 3rd anniversary of the day we said I do, each anniversary has brought it’s own surprise. The week before I first anniversary we found out we were going to have a baby, we consider that to be the greatest present of all. Last year were so happy Casey had just found a job after his second lay off. This year we are grateful to have a roof over our heads, food to fill out tummies, and a home full of love.
We have faced a fair amount of obstacles in these first few years, if we can overcome these we can overcome anything. I know it won’t always be easy, if ever(that is what it feels like at this moment). If we fall back on our love for each other, we shall be able to over come anything that is thrown our way.
I love you Casey, and can’t wait to see what life has in store for us.
