High five to my dear husband… it’s been FIVE YEARS since we exchanged vows. It seems like so long ago, yet like yesterday. We’ve done so much in that amount of time… Neil graduated, Neil got his first big-boy job, we moved to Kansas City, bought our first house, we got a cat, I went solo with my photo biz, my sister gave me my niece, lots of friends have had babies, we lost a couple of loved ones, we went to Italy, we had Weston (the most important of all these events!!), we welcomed another sweet niece to the world (via my brother & his wife!)…and life just keeps going. Ups. Downs. But we at least can depend on one another through it all.
The song I wrote for Neil back then to be sang at our wedding by friends still holds true today. Click the song title to hear the tune…the live version was even better. If only I could relive that. Sniffle.
She knew by the spring of ‘05The best friend that she’d found in himWas not the same stereotypeHe always said that things would work out fineThe kisses that followed uprooted the doubts in her mindShe laughed at his jaw-dropping jokesShe’d hummed until him,but the sound that she’d heard were just notes“Trust” had only been a word that she could spellWith him she learned its meaning and memorized it wellShe knows in her mindThat his promise still standsAnd he knows that he’s gotHer sweet heart in his handsBlessed with forever,There can never be enough tomorrowsThere can never be enoughIn search, for a modest fameAnd in fact he found fortuneSome might call it fateShe always said there was a reason, a reason for it all,And the talk of dreams that followedWere slowly overhauledWith her he shared; at her desire to plan,He smiled because till her,every second seemed to slip through his hands“Love” had only been a record with no beat,With her, he found his rhythm, with her he was completeShe knows in her mindThat his promise still standsAnd he knows that he’s gotHer sweet heart in his handsBlessed with foreverThere can never be enough tomorrows (2X)There can never be enoughThere can never be enoughForever and a dayIt will always be this wayThere can never be enough
And to prove that I practice what I preach and have no regrets on the quality of photos I got from our wedding photographers (Stacy Reeves & Lara Hanlon)…. enjoy OUR special day.
