The Anniversary Post
I felt like a princess in my dress all over again and I can't tell you how much fun I had wearing it. Even today, Ash was snuggled up with me and said, "Mommy, I really love your princess dress." Priceless! :)
My brother-in-law is an ordained minister and he did the vow renewal with us. I think it surprised me how emotional I felt during the vows. At one point, Ash came over and stood right with us, then Lincoln tumbled over (not wanting to be left out!). Jeff said that was his favorite moment. Because that's the real 'us' of who we are today. So different from ten years ago when we stood in front of our friends and family and made those vows the first time. Now there are four of us and those little darlings are our world.
I am so glad we decided to renew our vows this anniversary. I think it made our 10-year extra memorable. Plus, I think it was just good for us. Ten years is a long time and we've come a long way together, but truthfully, we've got a long way to go. More years together and more life experience. And refreshing our commitment to each other was healthy for us. By this point, I think we both know that the commitment side of marriage is the foundation. All the love and attraction are important and great, but it's the commitment that gets you through the rough days.
And gosh, I want to thank Sara for all her help. She took amazing pictures and took wonderful care of our babies. I can't wait to post more pictures for you guys to see! Oh! And for everyone looking for Valentine's Day ideas, you might want to check out this post I did last year: When it comes to Valentine's Day...
So that was our weekend! How was yours?
