10 Years Ago Today
10 years ago today, Andrew and I were married in St. Andrews, New Brunswick in the Lazy Croft Garden at the Algonquin hotel.
It was a hot, hot day, unlike today which is rainy and drizzly. Andrew's dad performed the ceremony and my dad made everyone cry when he spoke at the reception.
It was a good day but a hard day in some ways. A few years ago, Andrew wrote a song about our wedding day and the hard parts about it. It's on the last album he recorded with his band. It makes me cry and it makes me proud.
Many things have happened in these last 10 years, some things I would like to change, others that I wouldn't; but I definitely would not change the fact that Andrew and I face all those things together.
(In case you're wondering, my dress and shawl were made by the amazing Angela Bright who does NOT make wedding dresses, but she made an exception for me. She hand beaded the shawl and the dress, and for that she deserves a medal.)
