Congrats to Matt & Nicole!!!

Jamie and I had the privilege of attending the wedding of one of Jamie's oldest coaching buddies this evening. It was a beautiful ceremony. This is the first wedding that Jamie and I have attended together since our own wedding, and I think we both really enjoyed it. There is something about hearing those vows again that serves as a reminder of our own vows to one another. I always get a bit misty-eyed at weddings, even if I don't know the couple very well. Since meeting Jamie, I just really believe in marriage. It's such a special bond that I can't even put into words adequately. We are so very happy for Matt & Nicole. I was telling Jamie during the reception that I think I can get a feeling for a couple during their wedding ceremony. Just by seeing their faces as they look at one another and recite their vows, I can tell if a couple is for real or not. Matt & Nicole are 100% for real, and it just shined through. There were many happy tears shed during their ceremony, and it reminded me a great deal of ours.

So, here's to the newly married couple!!! May they share many, many happy years together.

And one shot of my love and I:

We had a wonderful time at the reception. I discovered that Jamie is an amazing dancer! We have never really gone out dancing before. I knew he was pretty good just from goofing around at the house and in the car when our favorite songs come on the radio, but he has me totally impressed now!!! Thanks to my several glasses of wine and champagne, I had a difficult time keeping up with him, but he really blew me away! Now I think we may have to go out dancing more often.

Love that last picture of you two! Sometimes, it's nice just to get out and dance.
