Rehearsal

Saturday is Valentine's Day!!! It may be a Hallmark holiday, but I think our world could use a few more holidays that celebrate love!
Garth and I are celebrating V-Day/One Year at a fancy restaurant with a live band and dancing. I am so excited to dress up and spent time with the one God made for me!
But I can't help but think about last year's Valentine's Day. It was super special and one I will always remember - it was our rehearsal dinner! We were surrounded by the people we love and isn't that the best way to spend Valentine's Day? It was just the way I envisioned it - close friends and family, relaxed atmosphere, good wine, and pizza at my parent's house. Perfection. My favorite memory was teaching my brothers and Garth the hussle in our living room. Garth wasn't getting it, my brother Brad was high kicking (which is not necessary in the dance). It was hilarious and a moment I will never forget. The speeches were beautiful and there were lots of laughs. My camera was dying, so the pics aren't quality and I do apologize.

It's crazy that it was just a year ago isn't it? How quickly things can all change in a year.

Sounds like you should have lots of fun though.

Aww, that is a great way to spend Valentines Day! I bet it was fun teaching everyone The Hussle. I had to teach my parents The Electric Slide for my wedding...it was so much fun, and now as soon as my dad hears the first few beats of the Electric Slide at a reception, he's one of the first ones on the dance floor :-) I hope you and your husband have a wonderful Valentines Day!
