I know that we all….or maybe me more 🙂 rag on our husbands a little WHEN they think we are studying the design of our house like a quarterback learning plays for the Superbowl….just saying.
But today I am only going to say good things…..It is our wedding anniversary. Normally there is a card and a couple of smooches….but this time we decided we needed a little romance added to it. Totally out of character for us we booked a night at the Ritz Carleton at Reynolds Plantation. Oh yeah baby…..
Located about 75 miles from Atlanta on Lake Oconee.
A view from our room.
Just to give you a little history…..we eloped. Yep, to Ringold , Georgia. Where you can go to the courthouse and get the blood work and paperwork done and then go across the street to get hitched.
Today I am going to share a picture of our lovely wedding….which I do not think anyone has ever seen. I do remember that we took $100.00 from the ATM that day. It was $20.00 for all the legal documents and another $20.00 for the minister. Great…$60.00 left for a celebratory lunch right????
Well, we walked across the street and they have to go into the back room to wake up [I really mean wrassle him out of a drunk stupor] the minister. And here he cum……yep…stumbling out.
He positioned us on a wall under some painted ivy….I know you want to scroll down to see right now…but seriously savor this moment….
Then….he opened his mouth and I noticed he had no teeth. Oh boy……
But…he managed to “gum” his way through all the necessary questions….”Sherry…. do you love David”……um dude…that is why we are here today. I don’t know if you have noticed but this here ain’t a shotgun wedding.
So here is the proof…..
Yep…and that picture was an extra $10.00. We are down to $50.00.
We get outside and I am thinking….great let’s celebrate. And this answer is why I love my man so much. David asked me earlier if he should tip him and I said that it might be a good idea. I say “let’s go back to Atlanta and have a nice lunch”. He said…well…there is no money left. WHAT????? I gave him the rest so he could put it towards his “get some teeth fund”. Honey…he is just going to get another couple of bottles of rum…he is way past teeth….
Seriously though…I love my husband dearly…..he is my rock. He doesn’t watch reality shows…but if you need to know how a refrigerator works or any answer to any question…he is your man.
I am so glad he loves me. Big hair and all as you are about to see…..
I was trying to embrace the curl here…..
Holy crap…even bigger…if that is possible. It is like it needs it’s own state.
Lightened up on the makeup and decided that if I was going to live in Georgia that ponytails were going to have to work for me.
Another curly day 🙂
Hat’s are always good for a little taming….
I think I discovered flat irons thankfully…..
Don’t you love a man in a uniform????
I inherited these 2 wonderful people in the deal….I could not be more blessed.
OK…and here is the real reason….even though I am on a boat and SICK as a dog….I had just lowered myself down to pee [cause I was WAY to sick to even walk below] in fact I was too sick to even pull up my pants….he still loves me.
And…look at that hair people!
So here we are 18 years later….still in love…….
I am one lucky gal…..
Happy Anniversary honey…
