What I Wouldn't Change

My husband and I celebrated our eleventh anniversary on Saturday.  We've been to dozens of weddings since our own -- including one this weekend.  (You really should have seen us on the dance floor.  Few words can describe moves like ours.  Not to brag, but I think raw and talent are two of them.)

After seeing so many other wedding celebrations over the years, I realize that I'd make some different choices if I had to plan ours again now.

I'd likely select a different wedding gown and style my hair another way.  I'd probably change the flowers, choose new dresses for the bridesmaids, and alter the color scheme.

But these are all peripherals -- those nonessential details that never matter years down the road.

What I wouldn't change is him.

Yes, I'd choose him all over again.  We're just getting warmed up.

    Bravo! Happy anniversary! I know we've talked before about the fact that we celebrated 11 years earlier this summer. I didn't care about any of the 'peripherals.' In fact, my mom made my dress and I never even saw it until a couple days before the wedding. I do knew it made her happy beyond belief create it for me so I didn't care what it looked like (and it was perfect). I've always told people that I didn't care if I was in a gunny sack holding dandelions. As long as Hubby and I were there with my Dad (he married us), it was all good.

  3. Happy Anniversary!! Happy for you two love birds!!
