I don't usually share personal photos, but since this is a special occasion, I'm going to.

With my Dad, hoping not to trip.

I wanted to include a picture from our honeymoon, but I couldn't find one with both of us in it. This was taken a few months later.
And in case you're wondering, I didn't trip on my dress, and I remembered the ring. The photographer showed up on time (but took disappointing pictures), the cake was perfect, the food was wonderful and the DJ had all the right music. Our wedding was all I had hoped it would be and more.
We were so young, I was 21 and he was 24, but we knew we had something special together. I can honestly say that we are as happily married today as we were on this day twenty years ago. I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing twenty years from now.
