Wedding Anniversary

On June 25, 1994 Phillip and I said "I do" inside a sunken garden in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.


I dug through some boxes last night and found a few things from that special time...

Here is what my wedding dress looked like. I tried on 3 dresses and liked this one the best. A few months later I found this picture in a magazine. It's much easier to show you this way rather than getting the dress down from my closet. Then I would have to admit that I never got it cleaned or preserved and I wouldn't want to do that. ;0)


Our invitation...


I still have our guest book. We had a small (around 40 guests) reception at our future home.


Here we are 13 years ago. We aren't as skinny now but Phillip does have shorter hair. ;0)


We actually celebrated our anniversary this past Friday night. Nana and Papa babysat while Phillip took me to a John Mayer concert. We left the house at 6:00pm and got home at 1:30am. It was worth it though!

Happy Anniversary, Phillip!! I'm looking forward to the next 13 (and many more!) years together!!
