Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to Allen and me! :) 4 years!! It really seems like yesterday that we just met through mutual friends, (Yes, all credit goes you Larry)    :)
4 years ago today right about now 11:30 am I had just gotten my hair finished and was heading to the church to get my make up done and then to put on my dress, we were having our pictures done before the ceremony and Allen and I got to have a "moment" of just him and I at the front of the altar before all of the mayhem started.
There were really very few things I would have changed about our wedding, I wish I would have gotten the other dress that I fell in love with that was trumpet style, I would have gotten my bridesmaids a tea length style that would have been more possible for them to wear again, and I would have wanted my mom to be on time and someone else to do her hair (DON'T get me started on her hair) but really I think that might be it. I am sure that there are other things here and there I wish had or hadn't happened but all in all things went perfect and we couldn't have asked for better weather! It was beautiful!!

It is funny when I think back because 10 years ago, I didn't even know Allen. 10 years ago he was a freshman in college and I was a senior in High School, the same High School that we had attended together for two years and never once met or knew each other existed.

But all along God knew that we were for each other and we would be together. It makes me happy that somewhere out there Noah has a wife waiting for him to meet her, she may or may not already be born yet but God knows who she is and it makes me happy that one day they will meet and know they are for each other. I pray that this is an easy find for him and although I know there will be heartbreaks and heartaches along the way that he has few and finds her quickly.

I have been through a lot of ups and downs in my life and Allen led a much different life, so he definitely keeps me grounded when my anxieties want to come creeping back into my life. We are so silly together but it makes me smile when I think about how much fun we have when we are together, we truly do have a good time together and enjoy each others company.
When I met Allen I was at a really low point in my life, I really didn't have a lot of good friends, I was single, I had just started a new job a few months earlier and when weekends came it meant me staying home by myself. My world completely changed the night I met him  seven and a half years ago and it literally hasn't stopped since, I love you Allen Jones and I pray for many, many more years together of laughs, smiles, hugs, and kisses!!

I had just put my dress on for the first time :)

This has always been on of my favorite pictures, it is like we are saying "We did it!" Can you believe it?!"

Classic Allen just did something face, Classic Alicia is not amused face  :) ha ha
