One year ago today (lots of pictures)..........

April 26, 2010

One year ago today I walked down to the beach, with a crowd of family and friends, and Don of course. One year ago today I married the most amazing man that I've ever met. I married a man who loves me, just as I am. He hasn't once tried to change me. He has showed me that it's ok to love myself, to think about myself and not feel guilty about it. He's given me more than anyone has ever cared to, the things he's given to me are things that can't be purchased. They're things that are priceless to me. I'm more in love with him at this moment than I've ever been before, but I know that when I wake up, I'll love him even more! That is the most amazing feeling ever!!

I honestly never thought that this kind of life was even possible. That this kind of happiness is even possible. How do you repay someone for that? The only way I've been able to figure out to repay him for what he's given me is to love him just as much in return!

On our wedding day we laughed. We laughed because we were happy! It was such a happy day for us! Anyway...on to the pics! These are in no certain order!

Two days before the wedding my Sister Diann, her husband Tomy and I went down to the beach and stayed at a hotel until our beach rental was available. It was so nice to get to spend some time alone with them! We went shopping at Kitty Hawk Kites wich is located right across from Jockey's Ridge which is the tallest natural sand dunes in the eastern U.S.!

Anyway, Tomy wanted to buy some kites for us to fly. First he found these two really cool kites, but then he found THIS...

Cool kite right? Looks like a reagular ol' kite right?? Well...feast your eyes on this baby on the ground...

The damn thing is 19ft wide!! Lol...sucker is HUGE!!! We named it "the big EFFIN' kite!"

Everyone wanted a turn flying this bitch! It's not as easy as it looks lol!

The day of the wedding Tomy decided to get the kite up in the air and then he tied it off to the back deck of our beach house. That damn thing was so strong if you'd touch the line the damn thing was vibrating! When it came time to pull the kite in, it took all these people (in the pics below) about 30 - 40 minutes to get it pulled in! I'm not kidding! Lol..

(This is my favorite wedding picture out of all of them!!)

Our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be. It was small, it was beautiful! There was no stress involved in our wedding day what so ever!! We couldn't have asked for a better day!!

That was really beautiful! What you said about repaying your husband is how I feel about mine, but I just keep on doing the little things everyday (notes, texts, baking)

Congrats Cajun!
What a beautiful way to get married on the beach and I really love the kite flying idea.

There is nothing in the world that compares to finding your best friend and companion to share life with.
