It was not a huge to-do, but it was just right for us. We talk about it year after year, and there is not one thing we would go back and change. In a chapel with 90-100 of our closest family and friends. We joke about it now, but neither one of us spoke the whole limo ride back to the house.
At that time, my mother had gotten married 6 months prior and she and Big Daddy bought a house and moved. She then, graciously, let Matt and I live in her house until we saved money and found a place of our own. 9 months later we moved 6 houses away from my parents and 3 miles away from Matt's parents. We love where we live and love the fact it is so close to our babysitters :o) We had been married for 10 months and been in our house 2 weeks and we found out I was pregnant. Matt's "Great" Aunt hired a housekeeper for us for while I was pregnant, and after Mattie was born I asked her to continue to come to the house, and she still comes...Basically, I have not had to clean the house since we moved in 6 years ago. HAHAHA! I am just as spoiled now, as I was then.
And before I knew it, when Mattie was 3 1/2 years old, here comes trouble, I mean, hear comes Nathan. He is not trouble, he is just ALL BOY!
So, here we are, 7 years, a house, 2 kiddos later and so happy. We thank God everyday for being so blessed with family, friends, health and happiness.
Happy Anniversary Matt. I love you, and thank you for the last 7 years and I look forward to the next 70!
