Happy Anniversary

September 4, 1999 was an absolutely beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky and "Hot"lanta was starting to cool off just a bit. Our wedding day was one made of dreams. God's mighty hand was at work and all went off without a hitch. One of the most vivid memories I have from that day was the few moments before my Dad and I walked down the aisle toward Chris. Dad was cool and collected and so sweet. He asked me if I was ready and I told him that he might have to pull me back so I don't run down the aisle! The moment I saw Chris standing, waiting for me, my heart began to race and the tears of joy just came.

The joy and happiness I felt that day has grown so much over the past nine years. Chris, God knew what he was doing when we were set up on that blind date. He knew that only you could deal with my chatty mouth, list making, Christmas extravaganza, mood swings, and my love of romantic comedies that I watch over and over and over. I am so blessed to not only call you my husband, but truly you are my best friend. Thank you for the most wonderful nine years of my life. I can't wait to see what the next 50+ years will bring...... I love you!
