17 years ago...
I'm going to be a bit self-indulgent today and take a trip down memory lane to Aug 10th 1993, the day we were married!
It was a wonderful day with family and friends and great weather. I certainly felt like a princess and couldn't stop smiling.I don't normally do 'dressing up' as I've always been a bit of a tom-boy and would prefer less fuss but I loved my wedding dress! For me, it had just the right amount of detail without being 'over-the-top'. It was made of silk and had a small train but it was the bows and drop pearls which I really loved.So I took it out of its storage box to admire it and re-live the day and hope you don't mind if I share some photos of it with you.Little buttons down the back~And I love the sleeves with bows and matching buttons,I still have my veil which had little crystal drops around the scalloped edge with little bows ~
My wedding ring is very special and one we designed to reflect the verse of Scripture which means a lot to us in our married life together from Ecclesiastes 4 verse 12, 'a threefold cord is not quickly broken'. I loved the plaited idea of the threefold cord representing the Lord in our marriage and I can truly say we have been blessed in our 17 years together.
Thank you for letting me ramble on and enjoy the memories!
Hope to be back soon,
have a great week!
