♥ May 19, 1984 ♥

It was a clear blue sky that greeted the happy couple as they walked hand in hand outside the old Spanish style doors that graced St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Puffy white clouds and palm trees decorated the sky. The bride and groom were both dressed in white. Friends and family wished them well and gathered at a local nature reserve afterward and celebrated. Guests ate and fed apricot flavored white wedding cake to the raccoons on the nature trails and embedded memories that are crystal clear 24 years later.

This is how Jon and I spent May 19, 1984.
We each married our best friend!!
And the rest, as they say, is history.

His story and her story!

I love this man more every day!
Saint Anthony is the patron saint of things missing and we always said he helped us find one another.
The laughter and adventure continue to unfold as we make our journey through life together!

24 years ago! WOW! The days of Lou's Hallmark and Movie City 10, among other things.


See you in a few weeks..

By the way...when you left Fort Lauderdale, for more fertile "soil" you blossomed!
