Miracles...

When I said we were babies on our wedding day, I wasn't exaggerating. We were 19. We have a daughter who is almost 19 1/2. We've been married 20 years. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why we planned our entire wedding in 8 days. Yes. 8 DAYS! Of course, MC was my maid-of-honor. Monte, Michael's best friend growing up, was his best man.

It was a small wedding. (duh?!) Mostly family. Aside from MC, I had only invited 2 other friends, J & KW . I've been friends with these girls since junior high. To this day, MC, J & KW are my best friends. I love them so much.

On my wedding day, MC stood up for me. J & KW performed a miracle. You see, when Mom & I ordered our wedding cake, we told the woman at the bakery grocery store that we were expecting 34 people at the wedding. (See? I don't exaggerate...we WERE babies & it WAS a small wedding). Somehow the baker random employee misunderstood...

...and we ended up with a cake for 3-4 people.

that didn't really uphold the Precious Moments cake topper my grandmother bought for us... see how it collapsed? After we ceremoniously "cut the cake", J & KW got to work...

and SOMEHOW managed to serve EVERYONE a piece of cake (we even had the top layer to freeze until our first anniversary my in-law's moved to a new house 15 years later).

Miraculous, huh?! Almost as miraculous as two 19 year-old kids making a marriage work for 20 years...

It is wonderful to see that the two of you are still in love like you were in high school.

Firstly, y'all were 12. I mean, seriously, those faces!!! Babies! Secondly, hats off to you for having good taste at that young age to marry a guy that you could stand for the next 20 years (not to mention the tons of years left to go together)! When I was that age, I dated a guy with a mullet and a bad attitude. I would hate to have thought what THAT marriage would have been like...Congratulations, seriously. Y'all are precious!
