5 years ago today...

Five years ago today,
 I woke up single for the last time.

Five years ago today,
I put on a beautiful ivory dress.

Five years ago today,
My dad was still inviting guests to the wedding.

Five years ago today,
I had no idea I hired a scam artist as a photographer and all our pictures would turn out terrible. 
(still mourning the loss)

Five years ago today, 
My dad and mom gave me away.

Five years ago today,
My sister sang "be thou my vision."

Five years ago today,
I had no idea what marriage was really all about or how sanctifying marriage is.

Five years ago today,
I didn't know how funny Caleb really was.

Five years ago today,
I was signed my name Wood for the last time.

Five years ago today,
I walked down the aisle to a song Caleb's mom wrote, the same one she walked down the aisle to, the same one his sisters walked down to.

Five years ago today,
The sun was setting over a Walnut Grove and I thought, "so this is what it feels like." 

Five years ago today,
 I vowed, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forth until death do us part. 
We've had better. We've had worse. We've been poor and we've been poorer. We've been sick and we've had health. 

Caleb, I cherish you more today then I did five years ago. These vows mean more to me today then they did five years ago. You are my best friend. I love you.

You are beautiful.
I am glad you married him so we could become close friends.
I need you to tell me about the scam artist.

Happy anniversary! I hope you get a little time together!

We ended up with hardly any pictures too. Apparently the photographer's camera broke!
