Well, our anniversary was this past Saturday. And let me tell you…..the day was completely hectic. We were overbooked with T-ball, acting class, a birthday party and even a trip to the hospital to see my sister (she was admitted Friday night for pnemonia but is doing okay now)!! But Saturday night came and Chris and I were sure we needed a break. It was a rainy, stormy night…..but we braved the weather and headed to dinner. It was so nice to have a few hours alone. We just talked, ate and reminisced about our wedding night.
Every year on our anniversary I try on my wedding dress. Yes, you heard me correct. I relive my wedding day all over again. I never got my dress cleaned and preserved after the wedding. My intentions were to do it, but I just kept putting it off and I am glad I did. What fun would it be to just look at the dress in a box?? I will say, there were a few years where the dress did not fit….LOL.
Here are a few pics from my actual wedding so you can see the dress when it looked nice. It is a strapless A-line gown with beading at the top and all along the bottom.
The kids were so funny when I tried the dress on. They wanted to re-enact the wedding, but this time I was marrying Christopher..LOL. And Anthony melted my heart by pointing at me and saying ‘princess.’
Here is the front of the dress….
Here is the back detail with all of the buttons….
Here is the dirt that is still on the bottom…LOL!
I even tried on my headpiece……
And here is me with my boys…..the best part of being married is that I have them.
And I am planning on wearing this dress again someday to renew my vows….hopefully it will be in Hawaii which is where we went on our honeymoon!!
Hope you all have a great Monday!
