Today, two years ago Greg and I made it official; we tied the knot, we got hitched, we each gained our ball and chain! It feels like we’ve been together much longer than that, probably because we have been. I think it’s been 5 glorious years total!
Our original plan revolved around my total dislike of being the center of attention. I just was not comfortable with being up in front of an audience, family or not. The original plan was to go to the courthouse, (Carrie Bradshaw style) with my favorite photographers, then enjoy dinner at one of Atlanta’s finest restaurants with our closest friends and family. I bought the perfect dress and thought all was well. Boy was I wrong! Family didn’t exactly support the idea then Greg jumped on the band wagon. I believe his mom cried. He wanted a “real” wedding so badly that I thought maybe HE should be the one in the dress :). I must admit it was kind of cute that he wanted an actual wedding.
Needless to say I had a “real-ish” wedding the way everyone else thought it should be. Not too far fetched for me, after all I am: well WAS a people pleaser ( I’m working on this). To me the end result was what mattered to me most; to be Greg’s wife, and I got that!
I truly could NOT imagine life without him. I am so thankful that God put him in my life, and now we are about to welcome our baby… Maybe this month! December has always been my favorite month.
I love you, I know I don’t say it or show it nearly as much as you deserve but I want you to know that you make my life wonderful. I am so very proud to have you as my husband. You are the most caring and diversely talented man I know. When I really think about what you do while at work I’m in awe at your knowledge.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be home with our son. Thank you for being my husband and always taking care of me. I thank God for being so good to me through you! Happy Anniversary!!
