I remember the day very well. It was VERY hot outside, a typical August day. I remember I had an appointment for a manicure and when I arrived they told me the technician did not show up for work that day and they would try and work me in with someone else. I remember my brother being especially annoying, following me around with a camera all day. I remember the only job my then future mother-in-law was assigned to all day was to unlock a certain building at a certain time. Forty five minutes later I had to call her, which back then meant driving to a pay phone, and asking her if she could come unlock the building. I remember being stressed and rushed for the next hour after that. I remember my family being all dressed up and looking fantastic.
I remember the dress I wore that day which I had spent months picking out.
I remember eating cake, drinking champagne and dancing.
Oh yeah, I think I even remember getting married that day.
Last night, in celebration of that day twenty nine years ago, Dave and I went out for a wonderful dinner at Lydia’s and even had a special dessert made just for us.
Twenty nine years ago today, Dave and I left for Paradise Island in the Bahamas where we spent a great week in the sun on the white sandy beaches sipping fruity drinks. Today on our twenty-ninth anniversary, Dave left with five other guys on his Harley for a week in Sturgis, South Dakota.
Have a safe trip Dave and Happy Anniversary!
