Just yesterday

Twenty-six years ago today, we had our first date, and the following June, we stood before family and friends and promised to be husband and wife. I will never post our vows; they were way too long, totally unrealistic, and a little silly. We both wish someone had said, "You'll regret this!" but we probably would not have listened to them any way.

Amidst the vows, the tuxedo mistakes, the broken hurricane lamps, and the blistering heat, we have incredibly fond memories of that day. It was filled with friends and family, dancing and singing, lace and beautiful flowers, love and celebration.

Marrying this man is the best thing I have ever done.

Here's to the next twenty-five years.

SO beautiful. Not many guys can pull off the ascot and look like they mean it. Well done, John! Di, you are beautiful. Then and now, in every way. Sending you both big hugs and much love from far away.
