Yummy cake. First dance. Groom's cake from The Cake Gallery. Sweet family. Close friends. Just Married written on the back glass. Nathan says, "It is finally over." Blake's response. "This is only the beginning." Cheers to the beginning. Nathan and Jill: Have fun in Jamaica. We love you!!
Upon arrival, Nathan was presented with "Knight in Shining Armor" attire. Jill has carrying her faux bouquet made of bows from the gifts she received at her bridal showers.
The groomsmen gifts were personalized glass mugs with Vol shirts inside. My Bama lovin' family just LOVED that.

"Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare."
Our First Date: September 15, 2000
Location: Station House Restaurant, followed by Clumpie's Ice Cream and Stroll on the Walnut Street Bridge
Event: Phi Beta Chi Fall Formal Event
I knew he was the one when he sent flowers the weekend following our date. He didn't tell me his family owned a florist until weeks later, for fear of me thinking he had received a discount.
We look like such babies!
This picture was taken before:
-we had our teaching license (maybe that is why we look so young!)
-we graduated from UTC
-we had our "big kid" jobs
-we had car payments
-Blake had bought an engagement ring and rehearsed a proposal
-the real "Big Day," to follow 4 years later
-we paid rent, and later a mortgage
-I had a domestic bone in my body
-that dress became too tight :)

Setting: Jackson's Room, playing with blocks
Me: Jackson, how many blocks do I have?
Me (getting another block to stack): Good, what comes after one?
Jackson: Ah, ah, ah
Seriously, it was funny. Maybe you just had to be there.
