On This Day...

13 Years ago I was a girl in love with a boy.

I was dressed in white, unsure of how to do my make-up, worried about my hair, nervous, excited, fiddling with the new string of pearls I'd found hidden under my pillow. I was worried about walking in heels and stuffing tissues in my bra. I needed those tissues that day (and the videographer captured me fishing around in there for them). I was sweating and bouncing and floating and dizzy and afraid. I was happy and crying and laughing and crying. I was shaking and twirling, and dancing, and spinning. Hugging and laughing and kissing and laughing, and laughing, and laughing...

I was in a fairy tale this day 13 years ago, I played the princess. I wore the dress, the veil, the shoes. There were rings and vows and toasts and cake. I promised that day and kissed and planned and hoped. I met my prince and he swept me away, a girl still growing up. He cared for me, protected me, helped me, encouraged me, lifted me, supported me...loved me.

I was in a fairy tale this day, I wrote it, I planned it, I changed it. In my story the princess was a brunette, blue eyes, crazy, quirky, funny, happy.

So many dreams on that day as we danced...

The sun shone, birds sang, friends came, music played. It was a Wonderful World.

And the dream lives on...

Happy anniversary, babe.
