19 years & counting... plus a contest

It’s the 21st day of June. It’s the Summer Solstice. The first day of summer – but don’t say that to anyone down south – we moved from winter straight to summer heat.

On this day in 1991, I married my friend – it was the ‘theme’ of our party favors and very true – then and now. Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you loads. My favorite picture from our day – the ceremony was done and we were headed to the reception.

I locked the keys in my dad’s fancy caddy midday when I ran the reception hall to drop a few items off… it wasn’t as easy as calling pop-a-lock, back then. My mom’s street was being re-paved and when I got home late due to the key / locksmith issue. I drove with rollers in my hair for the only time in my life and the a/c in the church broke mid-way through the ceremony (um, summer heat). But it was the start of our life as a married couple and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

As a way of celebration, I’m giving away a copy of my current release One Wilde Night to one poster. You can tell me about your wedding day disasters if you have any…or make fun of mine! I’ll draw a winner tomorrow.

I hit Post too soon.

We didn't really have any disasters, but there were several funny blooperish elements to our wedding. First, my DH was late. (He made it on time for the wedding, but didn't arrive as early as he was supposed too). The cake (the one thing he was responsible for) was LATE. So late, that our parents scrambled in the background to get another one STAT. But it did arrive before the reception, thank goodness.

Our ring bearer dropped the rings, I don't know how many times. And our petal people (No girls to be flower girls) one of them was scratching his crotch the whole way up the aisle.

Happy Anniversary to both of you!

I think it's the mishaps and bloopers that truly make the day special (well that and as you mention Rhonda, starting your life together). Hope you have something special planned.


Well, I been divorce for years so the funny thing about my marriage was the divorce.

Happy Anniversary! Not being married I have no personal disaster stories but I think the disasters make a wedding (at least you always remember them). I had a cousin who twice split his pants at family weddings--one time as the best man at his brother's wedding.
