A Cross My Heart Promise

It's been 19 years since we said, "I do."  That seems so hard to believe!  I don't feel much older than I did when I arrived in front of the little white church, and saw my guy in his dress blues, with such an intense look on his face.

I wanted to say, "Lighten up Frances!"

Kidding, I didn't want to.  When I saw how serious he was, I couldn't help but grin.  We might have been young, but we were committed to each other and the idea of marriage being forever.  His intense seriousness made my heart skip.  This wasn't child's play.  This was real.

This is real.

Today I have our wedding song running through my head.  Well, to be honest, I've been singing it all week.  The moment we first heard this song (in the movie theater because we LOVE George Strait and if he wanted to be an actor, we were going to be his #1 fans) we both agreed.  This song is us, and all that we hoped would be us.

I cross my heart and promise to
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine

You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete
And as long as there's breath in me, I'll make yours just as sweet
As we look into the future, it's as far as we can see
So let's make each tomorrow be the best that it can be.

Nineteen years, I still feel the same.  Only more so.  I cross my heart and promise.  
Happy anniversary, babe!  I remain yours.


  1. YEA! Happy Anniversary! There is no better song to describe love between two people as good Ole George (we are big country music fans in our house) *raising my glass for many more years for you two!!


  2. Happy Anniversary. We will be 10 years behind you next week ;-)

  3. Happy belated anniversary! We hit 25 years in July. I've been here right along, but still kind of surprised at how that number snuck up on us. :)
