10

10 years ago today...

I donned a large puffy dress.

I had a woman apply makeup that was NOTHING like the test she did in the store. 

I had my hair done by a woman who forgot she had scheduled us for the day. 

I had a photographer completely off schedule because of hair and makeup... and then he took pictures that were so-so and slightly disappointing (I know at least a dozen women online now who would have done a million times better could I have just asked them 10 years ago!!!)

I had a florist who didn't quite do what I wanted.

None of that ended up mattering then... and none of that matters now.

It still all came together beautifully... if I do say so myself.

What did matter then is what still matters now.

We were surrounded by the love of our family and friends.

Those friends and family... they knew how to have fun.

At the end of the day... we had each other (and beer and wine... heh).

10 years later... we still have all of those things... and more.

We have a life filled with amazing things.

We have awesome friends and family.  We have fun.  We have our beautiful girls.  We have a home.  We have each other.  We have love.

What more do you really need?

Happy Anniversary Nick!  Here's hoping the next 10/20/30/40/50 years are filled with as much "awesome" as the first 10.
