A year ago today...

A year ago today,
the weather was in the high 50s, and it was sunny.

A year ago today,
I woke up at 4:30am to get my hair done.

A year ago today,
I was so excited, I can't remember what the food tasted like.

A year ago today,
my best friends prayed with me,
before I walked down the aisle.

A year ago today,
I danced with my new husband,
and Etta James crooned "At Last" in the background.

A year ago today
was one of the best days of my life.

Not because the weather was great,
or because the cake was good,
or because everything was perfect,

but because
I married
my best friend.
