It was Twenty Years Ago Today...

Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play... Actually, TWENTY years ago today, CR and I were wed in one of the smallest ceremonies known to man. Yes, my Dad can thank me for saving him oodles of cash on a big church wedding. I have never been one to follow the crowd, I tend to do my own thing. The wedding was no exception. A small backyard BBQ some cake and we were Mr. & Mrs.

We went spent the next week hang gliding in Chattanooga, TN and winding our way on a motorcycle through Asheville, NC and parts of Virginia via the Blueridge Parkway. For the record, the motorcycle trip was supposed to be an afternoon trip. Five days later we made it back to our car on Chattanooga. Ah, youth.

Happy Anniversary CR!

Happy 20th!!! It's not the size of the wedding but the length of the life together that counts!!

Happy Anniversary!! I love that you didn't follow the crowd. I always like hearing about people's very different ways of doing things. As long as you enjoyed it, that's all that counts.

Here's to another awesome 20 years!

Happy anniversary! I love it!! We are twins i think! My hub's and I will hit 15 years in December. I too tend to go against most traditions and we got married in Vegas. I would do it all over again too. Both sets of parent's went to so it wasn't like we didn't tell anyone. It was totally planned and what a blast it was. I will go vot for you now!
