Today is our first wedding anniversary! (Me and Wes’. Not me and Bea’s. But you knew that.)
I have been trying, albeit not very hard, to find time to put together our wedding scrapbook. To be honest, I’m not one who’s big on tears, so I’ve been avoiding it like the plague! We’ve most definitely gone through wedding photos, but I just can’t quite sift through all of the little memories from the big day. It was a very emotional one.
However, being the day that it is, I thought it would be appropriate to go through our guest book. We made a time capsule of sorts–we had guests sign their names and leave a sentiment on a piece of paper, with the knowledge that we would be opening the capsule and reading their words one year later. Well, it’s one year later, and we have done just that! Here are some of our favorites:
“You guys are amazing and I love you so much! You are going to have beautiful, smart children no doubt!
“Wesley, I hope you don’t touch your nose and have your teeth come out when you get married, because that’s the way Grandpap used to do it.” (just want everyone to know that Wes does not have dentures. Yet.)
“Always remember the special moments and cherish them every day!”
“I had lost faith in true love (the forever kind) until today. You two were truly meant for each other. I look forward to watching you grow old together (and I don’t mean that in a creepy way). Remember to always find something to laugh at. I love you both dearly.”
“Yes it is a windy day but as the winds of life blows you to and fro, as long as you truly love and believe in each other and your love you will never be blown apart.”

We were so truly blessed to be surrounded by so many beautiful people on our special day. And following one’s instructions, here’s something to laugh at:
Today, we are going to spend some time together at one of our favorite little cafés. And perhaps soon, I’ll be able to muster the courage to re-read those tiny scraps of paper we read to each other on that windy day on a farm in Missouri–and start that scrapbook!
