How sweet it is ...
It's here! Today!! Yup, we made it!!!
There have been times along the way when I thought it was too, too hard. Not worth the effort. Time to cut losses and move on. But somehow that didn't happen. The alternative was too frightening. Priorities shifted. People changed. Not every moment has been from a fairy tale, but I believe that helps you appreciate the times that sparkle even more and I'm looking ahead to the next quarter century with a spring in my step, a glint in my eye and a special hand in mine.
I did this page back in April and submitted it for the UKS Scrap Factor competition auditions (the Play-along Competition is still running - with plenty of prizes on offer here). This is only the second page I've done from our wedding mostly because I couldn't find the wedding album! It finally surfaced in the attic this spring where it had languished since we moved back to the UK. Initially I was really upset to discover that the double sided tape used by the photographer had crumbled to dust after 18 hot summers and cold winters of neglect. Every page we turned came apart in our hands. However the up-side was that I could scan each photo before applying new DST and making the album as good as new.
James Taylor's lyrics around the circle express my feelings perfectly - we didn't have a special song played at our wedding, but if ever we get around to renewing our vows I think I'd choose this one.
