Happy Anniversary to my loving husband. I have to say, I have the most wonderful and supportive man in the world. He puts up with me and all my craziness. He doesn’t complain about my late night writing. He doesn’t mind when I return home from the grocery store with an arm full of books and no groceries. (I get distracted easily.)
He’s the greatest guy I know and I’m glad God gave him to me as a mate. During the wedding planning I turned into a bridezilla. I didn’t all the way turn, I was like, half way there. He would just rub my back and tell me to breathe.
In the end, thanks to my mother in law, everything turned out perfect. Below are some photos from that special day.
The cake and decor was exactly what I wanted. I write dark paranormal romance, so of course my wedding colors were black, red and white.
The guests loved the bookmarks. So did I. I actually wanted to keep them all for myself. Alas, I relented and let the others have them. Though, I did keep a few.
I have a large family which means I have too many nieces to count. The four youngest all wanted to be my flower girls, so I let them. #BestAuntInTheWorld
My handsome nephew was the ring bearer. He did such a good job.
My father passed away when I was a teen. I was honored to have one of my brothers give me away. #ImTheYoungest #Spoiled
The happy couple. And yes it did rain. My hopes of taking pictures in the garden of our venue was ruined. But, my brother told me the rain was good luck. And my big brother is always right. 🙂
My brides maids drove me crazy while we were dress hunting. They finally decided on a dress they all liked.
Three years ago, on June 1st, I married my best friend. I haven’t regretted it. I write romance books. I read romance books. I live in a fantasy world where happily ever afters are real. But, I know real life is hard and it doesn’t always work out the way we plan.
That doesn’t mean I can’t keep believing that my Prince Charming will continue being the loving man he is or that our life will continue to be filled with pixie dust and rainbows. As long as we believe it, we can achieve it. And we definitely believe it.
Happy Anniversary Mr. Allen.
