Happy Anniversary Baby

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary. This time three years ago I was anxiously awaiting walking down that isle and marring the man of my dreams.
I met Britt when I was 14 years old and immediately had a huge crush on him. I use to say he looked like Luke Perry and we all know how big 90210 was 14 years ago lol! Britt is the older brother of one of my best friends. He is a little older than me so of coarse our relationship started out nothing more than a school girl crush. I use to hug his picture and tell his mom and his sister that I was going to marry him someday, they just laughed but ...."I WAS SERIOUS!"
Fast forward 4 years later I turned 18 and was now legally available tee-hee! I decided it was time to call Britt and ask him out on a date. Of coarse I dialed the number about 40 times before I actually let it ring. Finally I let it rig "YES!" voicemail. Later that night Britt called me back we talked for hours and decided to go on a date. Our first date was on Christmas day (the best Christmas gift ever) We went on a carriage ride and to a movie downtown, it was so sweet!
After 6 years of dating Britt reenacted that first date one night and popped the question. I know what your thinking yes I am a very patient women, he was well worth the wait :)
Now after 10 years together, 3 years as husband and wife, and two beautiful boys here we are stronger than ever!!!

Britt,
you are the love of my life. I thank god everyday for placing you in my life. You are my strength, my best friend, and my soul mate. I would be lost without you! I love you I love you I love you!!!
Love,
April
Enjoy the pictures of our special day.......
Happy Anniversary Baby!!!!

Happy Anniversary!! Your pictures are beautiful.

Thanks for the tip on moving baby boys arms.. I hadn't tried that and it worked pretty well. Seems like I've tried everything else.
