And so it was, TEN years ago today. I came up those stairs, daughter in arm of father, and for the life of me I could not breath. The undergarment was just too much. It wasn't you. It wasn't about that day. It was squeezing me tightly and I couldn't take it. This was my day, our day, THE day. So I slipped it off before turning the corner.
Though the look on my face was that of a scared "deer in the headlights" kind of look, I knew my breath of fresh air was there. He was waiting for me at the end of the aisle. All I had to do was take a moment, breath him in and he was mine forever. We became one. One body, one soul, life mates. Somehow in the crazy mess-of-a-world we were both living in, God, fate, the inter-webs, they brought us together.
It is our love story, and one I'm proud to recall this day with you.
