6 Years Ago Today ...

Six years ago today I married my Knight in Shining Armour -sorry Women's Lib. he really does exist and the fairy tales are right!!!!

To be more exact, six years ago we were finishing up the pictures and nearly falling over from hunger :) We took the pictures on the side lawn of our church. Colin's talented cousin was our photographer (she's in high demand for cows after the Royal) and she was able to "remove" all the cemetery stones.

Colin looked so handsome all dressed up. He even managed to get the tattoo ink off his fingers. I was so happy. My face was tired at the end of the evening from smiling so hard.

There were only two things wrong with the day, the first being that my Grandpa Johnson wasn't there. Oh how he would have loved Colin. He's been gone since 1991 but I still can't write/talk about him with out tears and such an ache in my heart. The second was knowing that the OPP were driving by the church/reception on the lookout for my father, so that he wouldn't show up drunk and spoil everything.

Where has the six years gone??? It seems like just yesterday, but at the same time it feels as if I've know Colin "forever". I wouldn't change too much of what's happened. I do wish Ella had an older or younger sister to play with -but I thank God every day for our miracle baby. And I certainly wish Colin didn't have to struggle so much, but I do my best to make his hard earned income go as far as possible.

It's a dream come true to be married to such a wonderful man and be the mother of his beautiful little girl. Whoever said fairy tales don't come true, didn't know what they were talking about!!
