A Day I Hardly Have Words to Describe

"The day was beautiful and the way was beautiful."
(Lucy M. Montgomery--Anne of the Island)

"Happiness is excitement that has found a settling down place."
(E.L. Konigsburg--From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler)

"And the English language dwindled to a single word, repeated over and over: "Congratulations!"
(Jerry Spinelli--Stargirl)

"The very essence of romance is uncertainty."
(Oscar Wilde--The Importance of Being Earnest)

"The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only."
(Victor Hugo--Les Miserables)

"To love would be an awfully big adventure."
(J.M. Barrie--Peter Pan)

"Lovers alone wear sunlight"
(ee cummings)

It really was a wonderful day. I had no idea it could be so wonderful. But it was. And it is.

What beautiful pictures.

I love you both.

It did rain Aunt Rachel! Which made renting the umbrellas a good investment :)

Oh Ande,

This post was beautiful. I loved the quotes. I loved the pictures. I loved that they captured exactly how the day felt. I love you and I'm so grateful you are my sister because a sister is a VERY special role we each get to play for each other. I think mom described you perfectly today in her post. You do have a soothing presence and you always have. I love to just be around you. Thank you for loving and teaching me and for being the best sleeping partner until we both got married and found new ones (wink).

Oh Ande Payne! I have not checked your blog in weeks because I was sick of feeling dissapointed when I would see no new blogging from my sister friend.
What a great surprise and what a great post. That was the perfect way to share your wedding day and to remember it. I'm so glad I was there to take part in the beauty of that day.
Love you!
