A four year anniversary

First and foremost...

Happy Anniversary Husband!

This time four years ago, the husband and I were about to get married!  I still can't believe that it has been 4 years or 1,461 days or 35,064 hours or 2,103,840 seconds.  I mean who is counting anyways? Time sure does fly...

We were married on August 16, 2008 @ Duke Gardens.  Our reception was also at Duke Gardens in the Doris Duke Center.  It's a great spot for a small reception.  We had an extremely small wedding, a mere 27 people with only one attendant.

I remember someone told me to make sure and just take in some of the moments of our wedding day.  This was one of them, not the kiss (of course memorable), but what we were looking at while we were standing there.  It was a beautiful pond filled with lilies...

If you are curious as to who all of these folks are:
my grandfather, my grandmother, Joe's mom, Joe's dad, my mom and my dad...

Such a beautiful place... and memory...

Saying goodbye...  I was quite sad that it was over.

and to many more years to come...  love you Joe...

  6. Happy Anniversary!!!! Gosh, I loved these photos. What a beautiful ceremony you had, and I love the fact that it was small...a detail I would have emulated had I not already gotten married! I'm sure you were able to really savor every moment and time with every guest that way, instead of it being such a "production". Here's to many, many more years of wedding bliss!

  7. Happy anniversary to you and Joe! Hope y'all have a special day celebrating. :)
