730 Days

730 days ago, I stood before my beloved.  I held his hand, looked into his eyes and said


I, Poe , take you, The Man , to be my lawfully wedded husband, my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live.

He promised me the sameWe went from two individuals to one flesh.  There, with family and friends as our witnesses, we began our family.

After two years of marriage, I have a better idea of exactly what I promised on that sunny evening so many days ago.  We have laughed and cried, had joy and sorrow and have supported each other.  I am so blessed by my husband and I'm thankful that he's the one God created for me.  Life has been sweeter with The Man by my side.  There's so much I could say, and say it I will.  The Man will be hearing it tonight while we talk and cuddle.


I love you babe. 
Two years down, eternity to go!


Since it's Thursday and it's link up day with Amber at Goodnight Moon, I'm going to share with you the song we used for our first dance and the father/daughter & mother/son dance.  The Man & I danced together for the first stanza.  At the beginning of the second stanza we had my dad and his mom come dance with us. Then we had everyone else come out and dance while we danced with each other again. It worked perfectly for  us!

18th Floor Balcony by Blue October



I close my eyes and I smile
Knowing that everything is alright
To the core
So close that door
Is this happening?
My breath is on your hair
I'm unaware
That you opened the blinds and let the city in
God, you held my hand
And we stand
Just taking in everything.

And I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
And we're, we're trying so hard not to fall asleep

But here we are
On this 18th floor balcony...
we're both flying away.

(beginning of Father/Daughter & Mother/Son dance)

So we talked about mom's and dad's
About family pasts
Just getting to know where we came from
Our hearts were on display
For all to see
I can't believe this is happening to me and,
I raised my hand as if to show you that I was yours
That I was so yours for the taking
I'm so yours for the taking and
That's when I felt the wind pick up
I grabbed the rail while choking up
These words to say and then you kissed me... (yeah)
I knew from the start
My arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
And we're, we're trying so hard not to fall asleep

But here we are
On this 18th floor balcony...
We're both flying away

(cue everyone dancing)

And I'll try to sleep
to keep you in my dreams
'Till I can bring you home with me
I'll try to sleep
and when i do I'll keep you in my...dreams

I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
And your head is on my stomach
And we're, we're trying so hard not to fall asleep
So here we are
On this 18th floor balcony...

Yeah
I knew it from the start
So my arms are open wide
Your head is on my stomach
No...We're not going to sleep
Here we are
On this 18th floor baclony...
We're both flying away.

Since it's our anniversary I'm going to take a break from the blog while we celebrate and just enjoy each other. I have a couple of guest posts lined up.  I hope you enjoy them!
