That sounds wonderful! And the nail polish on the best man was a funny touch.

CJ, we were married outside in the woods. Very casual. I just wore a white sundress. I was looking for sandals and couldn't find any I liked so I said screw it we are all going barefoot. The best man even painted toenails just for the occasion...pink with sparkles. emoticon

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why arenít more people happy?

Where did you get married, Laura, that you could be barefoot? Were you outside? Or was it just very casual?

In honour of the name of our team, I have geared my answers to my dh and me, not just myself:

1. I have been married to my best friend for 22 and a half years.
2. The 26th is our special number - we met on the 26th, married on the 26th.
3. We have 3 wonderful "children" - they are teenagers and young adults now.
4. We work at the same school - my dh as a teachng vice-principal, myself as an instructor in the EAL (English as an Additional Language) program.
5. As our kids get older, we really enjoy spending more time together - boating, walking, etc.
6. We have enjoyed reading "The Five Love Languages" together, and are working hard to fill each other's emotional tank by "speaking the language" that we each understand. Not always easy - but worth it!
7. We are planning a big trip to Europe for when we are "empty-nesters".
8. Although I cannot fit my wedding dress right now (ask me again when I reach goal, lol), our older dd (18) will be wearing it for a fashion show next Sunday - should be a hoot! i will be wearing my MIL's dress that she wore to our wedding.
9. We love camping together.
10. God is an important part of our married life - the couple who prays together, stays together, we believe.

As we get to know you, share 10 things about yourself.

They can be any 10 things, no specific order, or specific info. It can be anything from where you live, to your favourite colour, to your weight loss or healthy goals, or anything else you would like to share with the team.
