Wedding Bliss - Women Living Well Challenge (Week 2)
Hello all! I'm linking up to the Summer Marriage Challenge over at Courtney's blog, Women Living Well. This weeks challenge is remembering your vows - post pictures of your wedding day.
My husband was deployed to England during Desert Storm and we were originally supposed to get married in September of 1991. After not liking the distance, we decided to move the date up. Actually, we were going to get married "by proxy" and have my best friend's (then) husband stand in for him, which turned out to not work (God knew). The actual paperwork never arrived in England on time, and he actually was due to return home by the time they did arrive! Too funny! So, then we decided to put together a wedding in two weeks time! Everybody quickly assumed that I was pregnant, but I wasn't. Just anxious to marry the man I loved! My dress was in layaway and one of our sweet elderly church members got it out for me as a wedding gift! I found a veil for $25, when I picked up the dress,which was an awesome deal! It rained that day and it started an hour late, but was a very memorable day! I would've liked to had a bigger wedding, but it was what was meant to be. The best part was that my father performed the ceremony. The minister that actually introduced us, was the one that gave me away. That was March 16, 1991, 19 years ago! I still love him and I think he's a keeper! (hee hee)
I missed out on last weeks challenge, due to way too much to do in one week! Here are a few engagement pictures anyway.
I'm a blessed mom with a sweet husband and six beautiful children. I love the Lord and want to do all that I can to please Him! I love going to church and participating in church-related activities. I love doing things for my family and just hanging out with them. I love all things girly, like purses, clothes, shoes, jewelry and makeup! I sell Avon and love watching women light up with the products they purchase. I love my life and thank God for it! I hope that this blog can be a blessing to others as others have been to me!
