Five Years

Yup, today marks the 5 year anniversary of the day the Missus officially became "The Missus."

...It was a wet, warm day and I remember sitting in the limo on the way to the church, yelling at my future brother-in-law because he wouldn't stop saying I looked nervous.

...Everyone waiting in the front vestibule of the church because the wedding that was before ours ran 45 minutes long. Dozens of people laughing and trying to get dry, waiting to get inside and get it done with.

...Giving the camera to my friend Steve, who managed to take up half my memory card with pictures of his thumb, pictures of his brother, wife, and parents, and pictures of the church walls. There were about 4 pictures of the actual ceremony.

...Waiting at the alter with my brother/Best Man, my left leg shaking uncontrollably as I tried to mentally prepare myself not to cry the second I saw her coming down the aisle.

...Finally seeing her, and instead of crying laughing out loud.

The rest of the day was just a continuation of that laugh. Five years later that laugh, and the smile that accompanies it, is still on my face. Happy anniversary, baby. I love you.
