October, 4 years ago

4 years ago today, we were married.

That was awesome, in that we had a no-stress wedding with 5 guests at a church.  My dress was $4 at a thrift store, and the ceremony was done by our pastor who had been a friend of the family since before Mark was born.  It was simple, no frills, and I will never regret that.

But let’s commemorate something else– 7 days before the wedding.

We had driven up to Roan Mountain on a whim.  As we neared the top, great gusts of wind sent swirling snow all across the road.  It was October 17th.  There had been a slight chill in the air in the valley, but this was a surprise.  We had stepped into Wonderland.

We started down the path, and the trees were thick with icy snow.  We were nowhere near appropriately dressed!

Oh, it was cold.

The wind had blown the trees into hard frozen sculptures.

This almost looks like a different day, but was the same trip.

I love you, Honey.  This day was special for us both and every day has been Wonderland since!  Of course, that means some days I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole and such… but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.  Happy Anniversary.
