HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE


Today I have been married to the most wonderful man in the world for 17 years. Who would have thought? From a previous blog you know we moved in together almost from the start and got married less than 2 months after we met. Who says there no such thing as love at first sight? I honestly believe I love my wonderful husband more and more with each passing year.


Here I am with Hut on our wedding day. Notice the longneck Budweiser in his hand. That's what we toasted with. It was a typical "redneck" wedding. Guests wore shorts, t-shirts and softball uniforms (Hut's friends were playing in a local softball tournament and came and went in between games, including the best man,lol) We had fried chicken, 'tater salad, lots of beer and tons of fun.

This is us 1 1/2 years ago when we renewed our vows. We had been going through a tough time with Hut getting demoted due to downsizing and I had gotten laid off from work. So we decided what better time to let each other know we'd make it through because we loved each other. So we went to Cypress Gardens Valentine's Day weekend and renewed our vows. My two sons and their girlfriends at the time served as witnesses and attentants. We had a great time.

I love my wonderful husband with all my heart and I feel truly blessed to have spent the last 17 years with this wonderful man.

I do have to say I got a bonus when I married Hut. I ended up with not only a new best friend, but the best sister in law in the whole world. So Happy Sis in Law/Best Friend Anniversary, Missy!

I think you are a most wonderful couple!! Blessings to you both! I think your wedding sounds like lots of fun! The older O got, the less I think a *fancy* wedding is the thing! Relaxed, fun and informal is always in fashion! besides, I LOVE potato salad! : )
Lucky you and Missy to have one another as sisters and best friends.

Enjoy yor sweet weekend!!

Love,
Sue
