25 Years Ago Today

Going To The Chapel

I know, I know. You didn't even think I was old enough to have champagne, but you were wrong.

In fact, you were really wrong.

Twenty five years ago today, Garrett and I were here at the Fuller Chapel.....

.....saying our "I Dos".

And yes, I unashamedly tell you, in case you aren't good at math and can't figure it out by my hair and pouffy sleeves....it was the 80s.

But check me out..........I had them alter my dress to have an asymetrical hem. Damn if I wasn't ahead of my time. But I digress. OK, let me digress one more time....see that hat my maid of honor and bridesmaid wore? I spray painted them to match their dresses. Get down with my nasty crafty self. Nobody even knew....well, until now.

Back to me and the Gman. 

We both look like babies. Mainly because, we were. OK, maybe not babies but 22 and 23.

Neither of us have regretted it for a minute. If you meet anyone who knows us in '3D life', they'll tell you we are perfectly suited for one another. They aren't lying.
There is no one either one of us would rather spend time with.....still.
I don't know how I lucked out finding this transplanted Dubliner one night all because my friend asked me if I wanted to go see Rocky Horror Picture Show with her and some friends, but I am sure glad I said yes.
To both the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Gar.
Happy Anniversary Babe. Wouldn't want to go through life with anyone else.
Hey, did you see the beautiful gardens in the picture of the chapel? My mother and I went to Fuller Gardens yesterday. Thousands of roses in full bloom. What a sight. I'll be sharing pics with you in the coming days. It was hotter than Hades, but it was worth it to see the roses in their full glory.
Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Ciao for now,
