Our Anniversary

Six years ago I was waiting for a mini tornado to pass through Fort Smith. We had spent a year planning the perfect outdoor garden wedding. It only took a little over an hour for a storm with tornado like winds to destroy it. This storm also knocked out the power to the hotel our out of town guests were staying in. The morning of the wedding revealed the destruction and the rain continued to pour. I was so stressed and upset. How could this happen on what should be the perfect day?

Then a couple of hours before the ceremony started, the rain stopped and left us with a beautiful sunset. The ceremony was moved indoors. It was a little crowded but we still were able to get married and celebrate at our reception.

I guess marriage is alot like that day. Sometimes your plans change and you have to improvise. You have storms in life but once they are over life is that much sweeter.

I am so glad we were married 6 years ago and have been blessed with our two wonderful children.

Happy Anniversary Chad!

Oh, how I remember that night and the next day!!! I remember your flower pots being thrown all over your parents' yard and branches all over the garden where your ceremony was supposed to be!! But it all turned out BEAUTIFUL in the end!!! Congrats on 6 years! I can't believe it's been that long.
