As promised....

My wedding day was everything and more that I dreamed of. I am so thankful to have had my fantasy day played out in real life right before my eyes. I was able to marry the man of my dreams which started this whole crazy ride. My brother gave me away in his Citadel uniform- an image which I know my granddaddy was smiling down on- we had all (28) members of our bridal party- all of whom we care so much about- standing up there with us as we said our vows. The love in that church that day was a mighty force to be reckoned with. The bagpiper piped me down the aisle to "Highland Cathedral", one of the most magical moments in itself- seeing Raymond down the aisle waiting on me is something I will never forget. I was so nervous- me? in front of a crowd, and nervous??? Never in my life would I have conjured that thought on my own!! One of my (and I owe it all to my mama) all time favorite highlights is surprising Raymond with a custom made dance floor that was the mirror image of the quad in the barracks at The Citadel- the smile on his face was worth it all....only to top it off he finally noticed I had died my shoes "Bulldog Blue" (not to be confused with Carolina blue, tarheels!!) It all remains a standing image in my mind and every now and then my dreams take me back to that romantic day-and when I am oh so lucky, sometimes, the remnants of some ole' beach music lulls as the soundtrack......
