Flashback Friday #2

Wow it is hard to believe it was 11 years ago today that Owen and I got married. I got out the photos and each one I so clearly remember taking. I leave my photo album out on the table and it is one of my kids favorite things to look at. They just love the fact they can see us together before there was them. They also love seeing how different we looked. I laugh when I see the pictures with John and Peter as they walked in just in time for photos but were busy lost in the casino during the ceremony. Hey they were kids in Vegas what did I expect. Then I look at Owen sister's (Jen is missing as she was in Switzerland working) and I remember my friend Jarri calling them "the bodies" and asking if I was sure about joining the family. I knew that I would never be able to look as good as them but they love and except me for who I am and that is more precious to me than anything. I feel that I have been blessed with a wonderful husband, who as I have said before, has given me the beautiful family I knew that we meant to have together. When I look at the first picture I can feel the love that I had for him that day and know the leaps and bounds that it has grown over the past 11 years. I know that we have many years together ahead of us and in the grand scheme of things 11 years isn't that long but I do look forward to the things that are yet to come. Also, Owen,thank you for loving me, supporting me, and accepting me flaws and all. I also hope that one day we will have the chance to get sealed because I just can not imagine eternity without you.

"They just love the fact they can see us together before there was them."

That is an amazing, profound, well-worded sentance. Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing this very special day with all of us!
