8 Years Ago...



I have many reasons to love the month of December. Today is one of the most important. Eight years ago we became husband and wife, and a new family was born. We were surrounded that day by our families, and I remember seeing our joy mirrored in their faces and feeling the approval and encouragement of generations. The dress I wore was my grandmother's wedding gown, made for her by my great-grandmother; I knew that as we worked to forge our own link in a family chain, we would always be upheld and supported by those who loved us.

Happy 8th! That's great that you were able to wear a family wedding dress. I was thinking it had a bit of a retro feel to it.

I remember being at your reception! We just passed 8 years about a month ago. Your dress is beautiful; how wonderful to be able to wear one with so much meaning.

What a beautiful wedding dress. Timeless classic! I love winter weddings. You were, and I am sure still are, a beautiful couple.

Your wedding pictures are beautiful, your dress was gorgeous. How wonderful to have worn it through the generations. I, too, wore my mother's dress (1948). They don't make 'em like they used too. You are very blessed.
