Thankful-Day 4

Yesterday was our 5 year wedding anniversary (time flies!) so I'm going to do a repeat...today I'm thankful for Chris, my husband, and the five years that we've been married AND our beautiful wedding.  Many of you know our wedding story, but for those who do not, it's a great story (as my Mom likes to say, one to tell your grand-kids about someday).  Chris and I got engaged about 6 months after graduating college, right before Christmas.  He was in-between OBC (Officer's Basic Course) and moving to his first Army assignment, Ft. Bragg, NC.  We decided that we wanted to get married in a year so the planning began.  To make a long story short, when you're in the Army, they have first priority in your life, so about two months before our original wedding date we moved our 400 person wedding up about 3 weeks because Chris was leaving for Iraq.  Invitations has been printed (but THANKFULLY, not sent) and everything was in place but after a few days and a lot of phone calls (thanks Mom!) we were able to get everything rescheduled to November 5th.  We still sent out the invitations with the wrong date with cards with the correct information so event the ones we have framed in our house aren't correct.  Even with all the deployment excitement, everything turned out beautifully and we had so much fun at our wedding.  We are so THANKFUL for our friends and family who were able to spend the day with us and make it so memorable and special.  What are some of your wedding memories?  

Our wedding, 2006
