11 years ago yesterday I got hitched.

11 years ago I was sealed to my eternal companion.

11 years ago I wore a dress that made me feel gorgeous.

Then I vomited in the bushes at the temple. not so gorgeous.

11 years ago I started a family that has gotten more fun as each little person joined us.

11 years ago I tripped over my gorgeous dress and face-planted in the grass.

11 years ago there was a party with big, fluffy, yellow dresses.

There was wrestling and laughing in the big, fluffy, yellow dresses. My mother had to look away.

11 years ago my little brother cried and was mad at my husband for taking me away.

11 years ago I made sacred covenants with my husband that made him mine forever and always.

it's been a darn good 11 years. May whatever comes our way include more gorgeous dresses, more parties, more promises to have and to hold, more fun little people in our family and more wrestling while laughing on the floor.

Congrats to you both!

Here's hoping that the grass you face-planted on were not close to the bushes you vomited in. How did your dress survive the day?

Happy anniversary to a wonderful couple! You did start quite the fantastic eternal group.

Those are some pretty interesting memories of the day. You puked? At the temple no less? And you face-planted? Nice....

Happy Anniversary. That was really sweet...and I learned a lot about your big day 11 years ago as well! That's too bad about the vomit and the face planting 11 years ago. That's no good. But makes for a good story now. I love it!
