Today, I marry my friend
the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, love
May 12, 1991
Today, the Dude and I celebrate 19 years of wedded bliss. Yes, bliss. Pretty much, usually. I always tell him that the day he was born, God created me to be his partner since we are exactly 9 months apart. We were 23 and 24, mere babies. What did we know? But when he took my hand and placed a ring on it and promised to love me forever, that was all I needed. I knew. He was the One. 19 years later he still gives me butterflies. I smile whenever he walks in the room. He makes me laugh everyday. He makes the bad days good and the good days better. It hasn't always been easy. It hasn't always been fun, but there has never been a day when I wanted out or wondered what else might be out there. He is my best friend, my sounding board, my comfort zone. I love you Randy more than I did 19 years ago when I said "I do", but not as much as I will love you in another 19 years. Here's to us Babe-I love you!
Our wedding cake was a white and chocolate marbled cake with chocolate frosting. On the middle tier you can kind of make out cows-bride and groom cows my Step-Mom found for us. To the right is a cardboard cutout of a cow that Sue (step mom) found and made a garter (you can see it around the leg) and a veil and a bouquet of flower and glued to it and used at my wedding shower-told you, I have a thing for cows. My Mom, you know, Sylvia Buchman, looked at me when I told her we ordered a cake with chocolate frosting and said "Chocolate? But what will people think?!" Well, we hope they think it's good. It was.
