Better Late Than Never: The 10 Years Post

I was married before digital cameras were mainstream.

And my photographer has disappeared, I think, so all I have is this somewhat mangled picture. It used to be in a pretty silver frame on the mantle, but our cat Phil (God rest his feline soul) knocked it off the mantle and onto a set of weights and the glass shattered and dented the picture in several places on my dress, as you can see above.

So this is a picture of a crappy picture. I do have some other pictures, but the ceremony pictures are dark and the pictures he took of me before the ceremony were ruined before being developed, so we recreated the scene a month later and it just wasn't the same.

Our 10th anniversary was August 14th and I'm in disbelief that it's been 10 years! Oh, I loved my dress! It was ivory (ivory went better with my overly-tanned complexion) and after they cut about 5 feet off the bottom hem and nipped the sides in a bit, it fit perfectly. I swear they probably made a whole new dress of out those scraps. I'm saving that dress in case WC is 5'2" and thinks a retro late-90s dress is cool.

Hopefully I'll get my act together soon and post about our trip to CO and my new Coach purse, but I've had a stomach virus and haven't been up to being creative or funny in about a week. We even had to cancel our dinner/movie plans on Friday and that sucked.

So as Scarlet would say, "Tomorrow's another day" and maybe, just maybe, I'll get around to it!

I can't wait to see pics of your new Coach.

Happy Anniversary! I am also without any digital pics of my wedding. Wonder what form of photos our kids will have when they get married, making the silly digitals so old fashioned.

"I'm saving that dress in case WC is 5'2" and thinks a retro late-90s dress is cool." *snort* This is why I am saving mine, too! Too funny.

We are all ver-uh ver-uh sick as well here in the SC household. May we all be back on our cute feet again soon.

Happy Anniversary!!!! I hope you feel better soon. BTW, you look gorgeous and happy on your weddin' day. I too lament the state of my photos in our (1997) wedding. Oh well.

Lovely pic!! The dress is so much like what I wore. I just wanted to thank you, I read your blog often and you have twice sent me your c25k spreadsheet (which I in turn have shared with many friends). I completed a 10 mile run this weekend and have my first 1/2 marathon next month. Your kind e-mail to a stranger is what got me stared and I wanted to thank you for the insperation.

Congrats to you and Mr. Sasha!! I'm so sorry you've been sick! Hope you're feeling better today and can celebrate soon.

Oh, and I loved my dress, too, but am in the same boat with no digital pics and not much in the way of pictures anyway. My small town (you know the one!) didn't really have it's arms wrapped around the idea of "journalistic photography." ;)
