I'm lifting my 8 week blogging hiatus to share this photo . . .

This was taken 10 years ago today.  When I see this, I can't help but think of one thing . . . how much bigger my boquet was than what I had requested.  I wanted a small round bouquet of roses, but I knew, even as we were ordering them, that the florist just wasn't getting it. 

And even though a bouquet that was twice as large as I had anticipated seems like something I would have stressed out about . . . I don't think I stressed about anything on that day.  Well, maybe I did, but I certainly don't remember it. It was probably my favorite day ever, closely followed by each of my children's birthdays.  I was so nervous and so in love.  I'm not nervous anymore, but I'm still very much in love.

I remember on our honeymoon talIking several times about "where we'll be in 10 years."  I think we guessed that we'd have a house (check) and three kids (check).  We did NOT think we'd still be living in Michigan . . . even so, I don't think anything we could have imagined 10 years ago could have been more perfect than where we are today.

I don't deserve Kyle and he doesn't deserve me.  It's by the grace of God that we get to spend the rest of our lives together.

I'm one lucky girl.

Too funny about the bouquet. I also wanted a small one. I got what I wanted, but it took a while. I even had to look through a catalog that was labeled, "suitable for a second marriage."

I guess second marriages typically don't have large bouquets?

Anyway, congratulations on your milestone anniversary. And also...I think the bouquet looks beautiful.
