5479 days

Today Justin and I have been married for exactly 5479 days or 15 years.
Today we will renew our wedding vows in a beautiful ceremony with our friends and family present. I am so excited. This will be completely different from our first ceremony at the Justice of the Peace. Today we will be surrounded by our most cherished friends and loved ones. There will be lights and flowers and dresses (pretty ones). And I am sure I am going to bust out in the ugly cry. I don't know if I should have a box of tissues with me or just take a roll of bounty paper towels. I have the perfect music and the perfect boutonnieres, the decorators, the sound guy, the food. But most of all I have the most perfect husband for me! We decide to write our vows this time.

I am ending this post with my vows to my Wonderful Husband! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

You are my "Happily Ever After". I never dreamed that I would have a marriage filled with this much Joy and Happiness. You are my best friend, my life partner, you are the one I yearn to see every afternoon, the one who completes me.
I thank GOD for bringing us together to love and care for each other. You are a kind, nurturing, loving, devoted, husband and father. With all of my heart I thank you for your unconditional love, friendship, commitment, and sacrifice. You give yourself completely to us.
Our relationship has gone beyond anything I could have ever imagined. After 15 years of living with you, loving you, appreciating you, watching you grow in the LORD, my love for you has deepened beyond my wildest imaginings. YOU are still the man I crave!
Today as we stand here, before our family and friends, to reaffirm our wedding vows. I do so with a heart that is overflowing with my love for you, and once again I give you every part of myself. I promise to Love and Honor you in all things. Committing myself to you as we look forward to the wonderful years ahead.

My favorite part of your vows - "You are still the man I crave." I loved that (I bet Justin did too). We had a great time, until Marshall's little incident in the bathroom. I'll tell you about it next time we talk. So glad we could celebrate with you.
