I stood in the upstairs bathroom looking down into my backyard. I was holding a bouquet of flowers filled with red roses and yellow hydrangeas. The smell was more intoxicating than the glass of champange I was holding in my other hand.
My dearest friends and family were all sitting in my backyard facing a green metal arch adorned with more of the flowers that I held in my hand. It was possibly one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
The music started and instead of feeling nervous....I felt so excited!
The sight of Keith and our preacher friend walking down the grass....took my breath away. He looked so cute, but kind of pale. I laughed to myself that he was probably looking for an exit....this 40 year old
virgin bachelor was marrying a girl he had met just 10.5 months before.
|I might jump the fence.|
My song began and I hurried down to the kitchen, exiting the door a few bars too early because I was so excited to get to my spot in the grass. To stand in front of my best friend and end this whirlwind romance and start our lives together.
I was so excited to marry my best friend....and have his babies.
I love you iKeith! You're the best husband I've ever had!
