A Year Ago On This Day…Posted: August 20, 2012
I was up until two in the morning frosting a cake, singing and laughing with some of my favorite people.
I woke up at the crack of dawn and had to transport said cake and decorating supplies to a winery.
There, I finished decorating my wedding cake. And then munched on fresh berries, mascarpone frosting and coffee.
I went to breakfast with my bestie. And tried to answer questions, messages and phone calls with a broken cell phone.
I got my hair styled and sucked down another coffee.
I ran through Price Chopper-with my amazing hairdo-carrying a case of PBR and a giant brick of cheddar cheese, pushing passers-by out of the way.
I sped up the northway back to the winery.
I put on my wedding dress.
I walked through rows of grapes and down an aisle full of friends and family.
I got to see Farmer Ben’s reaction. I’ll never forget it.
I stood in a gazebo with Farmer Ben and read my vows. Then the groom kissed me.
I got to see and taste just how talented my husband is when I saw-and ate from- our amazing reception spread. Best food ever.
I had one glass of wine.
I couldn’t stop smiling.
I got to enter our little apartment with my husband and make it a home. For both of us.
I started my life with Farmer Ben.
I want to say that August 20, 2011 was the happiest day of my life, but the last year has held so much joy, I know that that isn’t true. The last year has been the best thus far. And I can’t wait to see what comes next.
Happy First Anniversary, Benjamin! I love you. Each and every day.
