Number Three

On this day three years ago, about this time, I was standing on a corner in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, with newly styled bride hair and my little sister, watching a classic car parade with growing consternation. I’d had no idea there was a parade scheduled for that day, and as I waited for the rest of my family to arrive for a pre-wedding lunch, I realized that being trapped on that side of town seriously limited our dining options. I also realized that we were cut off both from the hotel where I and my bridal party were supposed to get dressed, and worst of all, from the B&B with the chapel where Matt and I were scheduled to get married in a few hours. As people in ’50s cars threw candy at my feet, I prayed that their parade would be done in time to not ruin my wedding day.

It was. Not in time to eat at the nice restaurant I’d picked out, mind – we ended up at a cozy country buffet for lunch – but by the time we finished eating, the cars were gone, and I made it to the chapel on time, and my life has been the better for it ever since.

Happy Anniversary, Matt.


Friday Rewind


Why being too focused is a bad thing.


  1. Aww. Happy anniversary, you two!

    • Thanks! I can’t believe it’s already been three years. Then again, I can’t believe it’s *only* been three years.

  2. Three years? Congratulations! I can’t believe it’s been three years already. Blessings to you and Matt. *hugs*

    • I know, right? I can’t believe how fast it’s all going by. Thanks, sweetie, and blessings and hugs to you, too.

  3. Awww, happy anniversary lady. Hope all is well šŸ˜€

    • Thank you, sweetie! Things are about as well as ever. Hope things on your end are going well, too. I’m so jealous that you got to meet Shatner.

  4. Happy Anniversary!
