February 7, 1997

Thirteen years ago.



On a cold Friday night in Portland, Maine at the Courthouse.

I wasn't nervous.



Only elated.

We had known each other a little less than a year...



and we secretly eloped.

We were planning a wedding which was beautiful and perfect, but this wedding, our secret wedding is a small gem of joy which I always hold close to my heart.

Happy Anniversary David! Thank you for everything you do and everything you are.

How incredibly sweet. You're grounded!

When I got married Jace stayed in the bedroom I got ready in. I think he was afraid I would climb out the window. Ahh memories...

I have followed one of my famous rabbit trails to this blog, and I am really glad that I discovered it! You paint a wonderful picture of your loving home. Thanks so much for sharing.

Oh, and Happy Anniversary!

How very romantic! My hubs and I got married in Las Vegas. It was our second wedding and did not want anything large, just something small and intimate. It was lovely, until we got food poisoning at the seafood buffet after the wedding. 15 years later and we still do not eat seafood:)
