one year ago today {and it's a follow fest!}

PhotobucketI don't want to be the last one to arrive at the party, after all...if i'm first, then MY halloween costume will be the original and all the others...well, we should have talked.  oops.  "sorry for ya luck," as one of the little fellas often says to me... so i am linking up for the party, thanks for the invite.  make sure you mingle with some other friends after you read my blog and don't forget to leave comments.  i love to get comments, it makes me feel validated for what i have chosen to write for the day...so trick or treat on over to another blog and show some love.  


....not only is it follow fest day, but its another special day in my life.  geoff moore penned some lyrics "all of my life i have dreamed that somehow love would find me, and i can't believe your standing here..."  one year ago today, on the beaches of north carolina, brad forced me to put away my camera and close my eyes and hold out my hand.  i closed my eyes {kinda} and held out my hands and when he told me to open them it was a better moment than any you have seen on the bachelor.  i know that's hard to believe...BUT...so true.  when i opened my eyes, there he was on bended knee holding out a ring saying, "will you marry me?  does it fit?  does it fit?" and it did and i said yes.  oh happy day.

and today i get to call him my husband.
......
and speaking of that guy that i love so much, i have some stiff competition in keeping his eyes only on me with this girl...

with or without the get up...they are kinda in love with each other...

.....


happy friday.
happy follow fest day!
happy weekend!
happy happy!
that's a whole lotta happy, folks.

kinda makes me want to burst into "dont worry, be happy...don't worry, be happy..."  okay, i'll stop while i'm ahead.  really, i will.
