Every year on our anniversary I look back at pictures from that special weekend and day. Today while I was looking at them, the emotions really came back – how I was feeling that day, getting ready with my girlfriends, about to walk down the aisle to say “I do.” I think back to that girl getting dressed in white, feeling excited, nervous, and truthfully a little afraid. And if I could tell her what I know now, what would I say?
Sweet girl – take a deep breath and savor this day. Walking down that aisle will, for you, signify walking into the greatest earthly blessing that God could ever have for you. Michael is not just who you think he is – he is so much more. He is a treasure that you will continue to discover with each passing day. You have no idea how lucky you really are, but over the days and months and years ahead, as you move across the country and across the world together, as you watch him be a father to your children, as he loves and cares for you daily, you will come to understand it more and more. Life together will be a great adventure and it will be more fun than you can imagine. Sweet girl, don’t walk but RUN down the aisle to marry that man. The journey ahead is truly magical.
Michael, thank you for the past 5 years – I am so blessed to walk through this life by your side. It’s so much better than I could have known. Here’s to a lifetime together and then longer than that.

Happy Anniversary! What a special day. Love you both!
It is always fun to get your E mails and see what you have been doing. This one reminded me of your wedding which was one of the most beautiful I have ever been to, and you were both so beautiful, and looked so happy with each other, and then you had that adorable baby which has helped make you even more fortunate. I wish I could go on and on because Papa and I always say you and Michael always look happy, and we can’t think of anything that could make us happier concerning you and your family. I wish you lived right next door, but we realize that would be a fantasy and not practical for both of you. I need to get something on the table for dinner; so I will write again before too long. All our love to the 3 of you, Love, Nan
So sweet! What I remember most is watching you two truly enjoy your day together. I noticed you two sitting at a table together with just each other. I was amazed. Beau and I will celebrate 20 years together this July. It really keeps getting better and better. XOXO
