Can you believe it?
Ice was everywhere and it was snowing...in TEXAS...
I can count the times that it snowed here.
Best laid plans...you know what they say...
We cancelled our idea of small chapel wedding,
due to the weather hazard,
but decided to get married anyway--just the two of us
by a Justice of the Peace.
We just had to have that wedding date~~
01/01/01 at 0101 in the morning,~~
as it will happen only once in our lifetime.
I wore a suit,
and I wore a garter and carried my bouquet that I made.
(which looks remarkably like the graphic below)
Even, had the sixpence in my shoe...
The ceremony turned out just fine with just us...
I decorated our house, and hung out our wedding flag.
Jay and I came home to our wedding candle, cake, champagne,
and a New Year's Day breakfast...
It was wonderful!!!

We let our wedding candle burn for the 24 hours of our first
marriage day... We will light it again for each of our anniversary
Our anniversary is rapidly approaching!!!!
Maybe we will do a Vow Renewal
for one of our anniversaries with all the trimmings!!!
Well, we'll just have to wait and see.
My advice to prospective brides:
Go with the flow... If the weather throws ICE your way,
just "chill" and get married anyway!!!
Well, I guess that we really had two...
~~both of which were completely impromptu~~
We had the next weekend(after our wedding)in Vegas
Later, we had a week in Seattle, Port Angeles, and Victoria, B.C.
We met in 1993 while working 3rd shift
at a computer services company,
and we became good friends.
Many things have happened since... Both good and bad...
Yet, we still remain...So, that must make us a really good team!
I love dogs...he's really a cat person... I love French cuisine and he's strictly meat and potatoes... oh and maybe broccoli with cheese sauce...
We share a love of computers,
(~hence, our wedding date. It's in binary code~)
travel, mexican food, grilled cheese sandwiches,
british comedies, mushrooms, and all things Sci-fi.
We look forward to this new chapter of our life...
Come join us here in this New Millennium.
