Our cake was a chocolate mousse cake. Oh, I wish I had a piece of that right now. It was so amazing!
My veil was really long and I wanted to make sure that it was put on properly so that morning I had a hair appointment and after they did my hair they fixed the veil for me. It was so funny driving all alone in my car the 20 minutes back home on the highway in casual clothes with this long veil on my head! People were beeping and laughing! It was so funny.
We had typical Maryland weather that day too. That day we had rain, then snow, then crazy wind, then beautiful sunshine.
The year before we were married Mark had moved back in with his parents to save money. (I was still living at home with my parents) We bought a house and the settlement was one week before the wedding. Very stressful, we weren't sure the house would be finished in time. Our settlement was March 30th and we spent the week before the wedding moving things in, lining cabinets, unpacking wedding gifts we had already received, etc so that when we got back from our honeymoon it would be ready for us. It was the tiniest house! It was only 15 feet wide! LOL From the kitchen table you could answer the front door, get something out of the refrigerator, and check the oven! Our Lab/Dane mix dog Fred broke his tail wagging it in the hall! Crazy small house. We thought, oh, lets get all the upgrades because we are only going to live here for a few years and then we will buy a bigger house and start a family...1 year and 9 months later Jason was born and 16 months after that Molly was born. It was a two bedroom house so in the kids room there was a crib on each wall. It was a toy house and we were living in it with two babies and a giant dog!We lived there for 6 years! LOL Crazy small house. We have such great memories there though. I still love that house.
So now it's 19 years later and Mark is still my best friend. He's a great husband. And he puts up with me!I'm thinking we are going to go out to eat with the kids tonight. We haven't done that in a long time.
I'm off to the candy guy in Pennsylvania today with my friend Cornelia. I need to get the special chocolate for the baskets....and some for me of course! Have a great day.
