take-me-back-tuesday

This week my husband and I will be celebrating our 21rst anniversary. When we said "I do" we had no idea what that truly meant. Then again maybe the dear Coach did, his smile does look a little forced. However, I think that had more to do with him wanting to get straight to the honeymoon. It was time for the reception to be over as far as he was concerned :)
I had the wedding that little girls dream of. Including the dress. Of course now when I look back on it,I wonder how I possibly wore the darn thing. Between the ruffles, bows , hoop skirt and 2 bags of birdseed one of the groomsman threw down the front of my dress , it must have weighed a good 25 lbs. (maybe more?) This week the Coach and I will take a walk down memory lane. Probably in shorts and flip flops. Love is great.Hoop skirts and cummerbunds are for the birds.

Come join the the fun. Post some Take Me Back Tuesday picks of your own.

How sweet & congrats! 21 yrs is a long time. We're on 18 *grin*.

One of my sisters had a dress very similar & I remember trying to help her out of it. That was a pain w/ all of the hoops & bows! But you also wore it very well. You both look sweet.
