our wedding 1

Twenty years ago today…

• I put on the white taffeta gown I designed and my mama helped me sew.

• My maid of honor kept me laughing the entire morning as we rushed around with last minute preparations.

• I looked in the mirror for the last time as a single, independent girl.

• My daddy  walked me down the aisle to the cute boy who stood waiting – and smiling.

• The cute boy, who would become known as Captain Cavedweller, squeezed my hand and all was right in the world.

• We stood in front of family and friends and exchanged our vows, promising to love each other for a lifetime.

• I married my best friend, head cheerleader, and champion.

Twenty years ago today…

•I had no idea how much love for this wonderful, sweet man would grow in my heart during the next twenty years. He is an amazing husband, a true friend, and an all-around great guy – one I love more every single day.

Happy Anniversary, CC. Love you!

When I got home last night, I was greeted by these lovely roses.

Captain Cavedweller bought them for me because he was proud of something I accomplished this week. And because he loves me. And because he knows I love roses.

Those of you who know CC, know he does not look like your standard rose-giving guy (whatever that looks like). He’s one of those strong, silent types who would rather watch from the sidelines than be the center of attention.

Which is what makes little gifts, like the beautiful roses last night, extra special. It is because he isn’t a mushy, gushy share-your-feelings kind of guy that makes things like this so sweet and so appreciated. He could easily say “Hey, good job!” But he made that extra effort to make the well-done have more meaning for me.

I write romance novels. Having been a life-long hopeless romantic, I could come up with ideas and inspiration from nothing more than my imagination. But it’s a lot more fun and meaningful when that inspiration comes from my very own romance story.

One that just gets sweeter all the time.

Wedded Bliss

Seventeen years ago today, Hubby and I stood before family and friends and vowed to love, honor and cherish each other for the rest of our lives.

I could go all sappy on you here at this point, but I’ll try to restrain myself.

What I will say is that when you marry the person you are meant to be with, the person who understands you, who loves you unconditionally, who touches your heart and soul in ways no one else can… 17 years flies by really fast.

The holiday season is extra special to us not only because we wed the week before Christmas but also because we met the day after Christmas.

Hubby’s Dad and my Dad knew each other and after much ill-fated conspiring on their parts, they finally convinced us to go on a blind date. It just happened that the day after Christmas was on a Saturday.

Hubby got lost and showed up late  (even though at that time I lived less than a mile away from him). I was ready to call the whole thing off until he showed up at my door and set my heart aflutter. It has been fluttering ever since.

So to my beloved, my Captain Cavedweller, He who melts my heart daily –  Happy Anniversary!

I love you!

Your Girl
