10 years, one week, 2 days

In Family & kids on October 12, 2008 at 8:13 am

Dave and I celebrated our tenth anniversary last Friday.  On October 3, 1998, we stood with our toes in the sand at Grayton Beach, FL and said “I do”. The bottom of my dress washed in and out with the tide. Everyone said it was going to be ruined. I said I would never wear it again anyway.  Our small wedding party then followed the boardwalk to The Red Bar and Dave and I danced to “Its a Wonderful World.” That night we stayed at Patrones Hideaway Village, a very magical place where hens and roosters and variety of other small animals roamed free amidst the beautifully overgrown plants and flowers — a place that no longer exists.

Last Friday, we made chocolate chip bannana pancakes for dinner with JW and toasted with the same champagne we drank when we got engaged. With JW at a friend’s Saturday night, Dave and I went out to dinner and a movie.

Dave sent flowers to my office early in the week so I could enjoy them for several days leading up to our anniversary. He’s sweet like that. Kelly Odom does the best arrangements in Raleigh. Dave is also having a ring made for me which isn’t ready yet, but I can’t wait to get it!
