I do

Three years ago today I was preparing for my wedding . I had no jitters, no last minute concerns. Just a dreamy calm about me. Maybe it was the champagne; really I think it was more about what was waiting for me at the end of the aisle.

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Circled by family and friends. The sun was shining and the happiness was nippy in the air. All set to marry the most loving, kind, generous man I've know. The one who I can look into this eyes and love everything about him. Everything.

This past weekend when we were in Tahoe we stopped by our wedding location. My friend Nichol and her hubby weren't able to attend our nuptials. I wanted to show her and tell her all about our wedding day.

We drove up and the whole site was under construction and what appeared to be the original area of our wedding was mere rocks and dirt. Not the lush green grass that I remember.

What happened? All I could think was how can this be? The sign indicates we are at the right location. Prior to our wedding they had undegone a complete remodel. Why would they demolish everything ? The current construction was for new homes. Maybe the land was to valuable for a golf course.

Nothing made sense. So we took our picture in front of the only thing remaining the construction workers outhouse.

We drive back to my parents hours baffled. I tell my parents about the demolition with disdain.

Guess what.

We were at the wrong place. The golf course purchased additional land less then a mile up the road and named it identical to our wedding site.

The wedding location is still there! Yippee. Now we have to plan another trip just so we can go to the right place.

Happy Anniversary, HHhubby!

AHHH happy anniversary! That would have been really sad if they put an outhouse on your wedding location.

Happy Anniversary to you guys! I still can't believe we were at the wrong place but, like you said, that just gives us a reason to go back. We'll have to get a picture next time of you guys at the actual location not in front of the outhouse that I have a picture of you in front of on my site.
