Time Flies ...
Six years ago I went from having a super easy last name, to one that's constantly butchered and mutilated by strangers ... it's nice though when the telemarketers call, you can tell right away. Sometimes I pretend I'm the cleaning lady, who just happens to have permission to answer the phone. Anyway, I digress ...
Six years ago today, we were having our rehearsal dinner. Right now, as I type this. The restaurant is no longer there - it's been changed into new restaurants twice since that night six years ago.
In about 4 hours from now, I would've been going to one of my best friend's (at the time) house to stay the night. I figured that way I wouldn't have to have the groom see me the morning of our wedding (bad luck and all). Sadly, I am no longer on speaking terms with that friend.
In about 12 hours from now, I would be driving to Publix to pick up bagels for everyone at my parent's house. All the girls were coming over to have their hair and makeup done ... and we left on time to get to the church. I never wore makeup back then, but now I try to have a little lip gloss or mascara on at all times.
I got married May 8, 2004 at approximately 2:30. I say "approximately" loosely because the groom was late. The limo driver apparently thought he knew a short cut to the church. Either way, it was a beautiful, and simple, ceremony.
And now, six years later, I'm still just as much in love with my husband as I was back then (probably more so). And I'm happy to say that my dress isn't so out of style that I'm embarrassed to show this (blurry) picture. :o)
On a side note, my wedding inspired a business that I ran from home for nearly 4 years ... and it's still up and running, but with a new owner. (waving - Hi Shelli!!)
Aside from no longer working out of the house, I can say that a lot of other stuff has changed over the past six years as well. But it all seems like it happened in a blink of an eye ...
