We're Golden

5 years ago...
...we rode in (separate) limos, one (mine) which had no air, and drove to this gorgeous place...


...I got dressed in the most beautiful get up I have ever worn...

...and beamed from ear to ear...

...this posse became family...

...these ladies became my sisters...

...my bestie gave up on her dream of us marrying rich doctors and living in NYC...


...a son made his mama proud...

...a friend lost his wing man...

...two little girls had the time of their lives and each earned a dollar...

...I took the most unforgettable walk (and giggled the whole way)...

...nerves calmed into relief...

...parents couldn't believe this day had already come...


...we took our vows...


...and became husband and wife...


...all our hard work turned into magic...

...we partied in our own wonderland...

...we showed off our moves...

...we were toasted...

...and roasted...

...we had our last dance...

...someones 'I'd rather be anywhere but here' attitude melted into 'I wouldn't want to be anywhere else'...

...we ate, hands down, the most delicious cake...

...girlfriends dreamed they might be next...

...Jen caught the bouquet and was...

...Ricky caught the garter...

...and wore it on his head for the rest of the night...

...we drank...and got drunk...

...we danced the night away...

...and had the time of our lives...

5 years went by...























...and we're still having the time of our lives...

Happy golden anniversary.  Here's to another 50 years!
