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.
