Awwwww


That's right...its official, eight years. Who knew it would fly by just like that. In order to avoid too much cheese, I will make it short and sweet. At the time, that was the happiest day of my life. I had waited and planned and prepared to marry someone not only worthy but worthy of me (no not vain, but a girl has to have standards)...finally it was here. I could not have been any happier then that day...

And then followed innumerable happiest moments, innumerable happiest days. Yes at the time, August 25, 2001 at 8:20 am (yes AM!) was the happiest day of my life. However, now it is one of the happiest memories of my life and to that has been added an abundance of happiest memories over these past eight years.

Here is to eight years of happiest days.

Eight years?? How can that be?? You've come a long way from the "I'm-never-going-to-get-married" teenage angst! Yes, I do remember those days . . . I love you and your darling family. Congrats!!

I remember that day, and you had Rascal Flatts CD at your luncheon after the ceremony at the park. That is when I was indoctrinated into the goodness that is Rascal Flatts! In fact, frequently when I hear them, I think of YOU! I do remember that the alarm clock didn't go off for me to get to your wedding! BLAST. I really was sad to have missed it! Congrats on 8 years, you guys are so cute.

Some things a dad just doesn't want to know or we shouldn't know. However, the one thing I do know is that you all are awesome and how grateful I am to have you as a daughter and son-in-law. Oh, and those 3 grandsons aren't bad either. Love you, and congrats on the big #8.

I insist on taking at least partial credit the man who is your husband! Explain you say- I prayed long and hard for the perfect man to come into your life. He did :) Love Mom One of my favorite memories of that day-when I asked if you needed help changing to leave and you said "Uhm no mom, I have help,Spencer's right here"
