alternately titled: i do.
alternately titled: happy 4th anniversary.
where to start? 4 years ago today jay and i walked down the aisle in front of family, friends, and God and became husband and wife. what better way to spend an anniversary than on vacation? it wasn't intentionally planned that way, but we lucked out for sure. (last year, i believe, we both worked.) so today's been a good day. low-key. relaxed. who can complain? not us for sure. or the dogs for that matter. the video below is from this evening.
i am usually on top of things when it comes to hallmark and having a card for all occasions. well, maybe not all occasions. but birthdays and anniversaries of those close to me, for sure. but i did not get one to bring along. so i made one.
i finished making my "card" and sat down to relax in my chair. we'd probably been on the beach about 15 minutes. and then the rain started. and the sun was still shining brightly. and then it started raining harder. well, there was a beach house that had a large deck and had been unoccupied all week, so we ventured underneath the deck to wait it out. i'm so glad we did. i have never seen the end of a rainbow until today. and now you can, too.
it ended right in the middle of the ocean. beautiful.
and just for a little nostalgia and looking at jay and i in our fancy clothes (as my little second cousin calls them), here are some of my faves from our wedding day.
seeing each other for the first time that day.
relieved and ready for the reception.
yep. he did that.
