17 Years Ago

17 Years ago everything changed
previous made plans went away with the February Alabama breeze
it was immediate, unwavering, fully encompassing
my fascination with you

the connection and love so natural spread 
you awoke my soul and turned my fickle heart towards sheer joy
i count you as my ultimate blessing, my beloved


  1. Congratulations! Very sweet tribute to your husband. 17 years of marriage is something to be so proud of. Have a great weekend! xxoo

  2. That's the sweetest post Polly. Congrats!! He's a cutie patootie!!

  6. Thanks, y'all are so sweet! I should have clarified that we are celebrating 17 years since our first date, been married for 14 this May :) We are cheesy in that way, always looking for things to celebrate

    I'm so sorry I've been out of touch for a while, but we've been trying to acclimate to Italy/get everything set up--we're finally here!
