It was Africa Hot




Five years ago today, I married my best friend. Here I am on the day of my wedding.


I didn't realize I had white knuckles until I saw the photos later.


The photographer was very observant!

And when you take the plunge toward marital bliss you are concerned about a few things.

We had a lovely wedding. It started out a gorgeous, sunny day. We had everything in place. Vintage cars lined up to take us from the church to the outdoor reception. We had a tent, a caterer, a cake, and a DJ.


What we didn't have was a breeze. You see, what I was mostly worried about when planning our outdoor wedding reception was ....would it be a chilly day or would it do the unthinkable....rain?

What I didn't factor in was extremely hot weather!

Like Africa hot.

I for one, actually like hot weather. But some people aren't able to deal with it too well.

Dear Hubs was at one point in his Tux setting up a fan to help beat the heat inside the tent. Who would have thunk it in the middle of May in Pennsylvania? Not me.

It was still a fabulous day and no matter what else went wrong (and things did go wrong) I didn't let it bother me. The day was going to be wonderful no matter what.



And you know what. It was. And it's five years later ....

I'm still glad I married my Dear Dear Hubs.

Happy Anniversary, honey!
