It seems like just yesterday that this was going on:
June 15, 2002
But eight years have passed and I'm not really sure where they went. We celebrated with dinner at Hot & Hot Fish Club on Southside, which is one of our favorite Birmingham restaurants. Among our random dinner conversation, we reminisced about our wedding ceremony (which took all of 13 minutes) and our reception (which we both thoroughly enjoyed and had to be "encouraged" to leave so the guests could). My favorite memory from our reception has to do with Ken's singing. We were dancing and singing along to "With This Ring" (a favorite beach song by The Platters from our growing up years) when the band tripped a breaker and the power went out. Ken didn't miss a beat--he kept right on singing! I laughed so much and really haven't stopped laughing since.
I feel truly blessed to have this man in my life who encourages me and allows me to be who I am. He makes me laugh, both at the world outside and at myself, and loves me for me. We have a true partnership and I couldn't ask for a better person with whom to share my life.
So, Ken, thank you for the last eight wonderful years. I can't wait to see what the future holds for us!
