Our Wedding Day

On our six month wedding anniversary, I wrote a post on a previous blog going through the ins and outs of our big day! I thought I would revive the post on my new blog (here!) to share some of the amazing memories I have from August 26, 2012. I have added in a few things I’ve learned during my second year of marriage! Enjoy!

To initiate combat, pull out the sword, and mentally prepare for the war that is about to take place.

And as these things swirled and replanted themselves in my mind, a voice came from the group.
