when i said i do......

two years ago today i said i do
to a man i could not live with out
a man i wished of marrying for so long.
a man i dreamt about becoming a father
a man i trusted with my heart
a man i called my best friend
 i remember it like yesterday
i spent the night away from my soon-to-be husband
i woke up with my mother and sister at the hotel
it rained in the morning
but they say its good luck when it rains on your wedding day
i got ready with my girls
 while my seminoles beat the gators
and while the guys got ready downstairs
shots and all
i had dreamt of this day since i was a little girl
knowing my father would walk me down the aisle
 where i would join my prince
and our family and friends would watch
as a close friend performed our beautiful ceremony
adding special touches that really symbolized our relationship
and what it had become over the past 10 years
we had written our own vows
something he wanted us to do
something i was a little shy to do in front of so many people
but they were beautiful
he went first, then me
ive kept those small papers
with our loving words on them
his a little shorter, but just as powerful
his went like this
and mine like this
those words mean even more to me today
than they did when we said them to each other
we were no longer just
matt & lisa
we were
husband & wife
and now
two years later
we are daddy & mommy
i love you more than words can express
you are the man of my dreams
a father to our son
and my best friend
happy anniversary
your one and only
