6/21/03 – 6/21/07

So today is the first day of Summer (the shortest night of the year according to wise old ladies).  And coincidentally me and Rebek’s 4th wed. anniv.  4 years ago we made those sacred vows in the dead heat of a Georgia summer.  I’m pretty sure even my knees were sweating.  But for the life of me, its hard to remember that day or even that week.  It was a flash of people and a flurry of gifts.  even know when we watch the video, I’m like “I don’t remember that”, “Were my pants too short!?”, “Why didn’t I shave my sideburns?” <go back four yrs, trust me, they were hot!>

I say that to say this, I remember exactly what my bride looked like, she was so beautiful, I am reminded of that everyday b/c she is still so hot!  The other thing that I haven’t forgotten was that no matter how fun getting married is, a wedding is not a marriage.  Marriage has its highs and lows, its goods and bads and sicknesses and $10,000 dollar surgeries (inside joke).  It sounds alot like the vows we took, right!?  the answer is “Exactly”!!!!!  Our Anniversary is not so much about a fancy dinner and flowers (although very important) as it is about reflecting on the vows we made!  An encouragement for our future!  A time to celebrate our commitment, where we’ve been and where we are going! (just like our Wedding day!)

Rebek- love ya baby!!!!!!
