Happy 6th Anniversary Jenn!!

My favorite reading in our wedding ceremony was The Hand Ceremony. I had no idea then how true it would come to be.

As an expression that your hearts are joined together in love-will you please face one another and hold hands, so you may feel the gift that you are to one another. These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other from this moment on. These are the hands that will work alongside yours as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch they will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief wracks your mind. These are are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears away from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children. These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one. These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

We met 13 long years ago. I have never met someone with a soul like yours. Thank you for being my rock. Thank you for holding my hand. Thank you for everything. I have no idea where I would be without you. You are my sunshine. My favorite teapot. (did you know I call Jenn my teapot..she's my little teapot short and stout!)

6 years ago: (Jenn would like me to point out her shoes...they are black and white, she also wore black and white Nike socks. She was oh so proud of herself!)

Elissa, Austin, me, Skyler, Jenn, Annabelle, Jim:

My boss preformed the ceremony:


Today, we shall eat cake:

and then head off to the Pennsylvania Farm Show. You know, cause stomping around in poop is how every girl wants to spend her anniversary!! To be honest, I do love me some farm show. I have dreams of someday winning a blue ribbon in some sort of cookie competition, or cake competition or something. I guess maybe a small part of me is a country girl after all. Shh, you didn't hear me say that. I will be back on Tuesday with pictures of the show...I'm sure you are all dying to see them!! (Monday is of course reserved for mingos!!)
